Size:  847.6 KBMy M21-4 is home from from S$W, about 34 day turn around. The cylinder was locked up when it arrived, hammer would move about 5/16 back, checked lock it was off, took side plate off trigger and hand came apart during pull out--have done this several times with no problems, got educated on hand spring, trigger assembly on mim smiths, checked lock and everything else, lubed, assembled---runs perfect, no idea why it was bound up. As you can see in invoice, new barrel, forcing cone work. I use a SDM gold bead front sight, nice shiny pecker mark on the barrel where the installed it, forcing cone looks like it was done with a dull counter sink tool. I am glad they found a barrel for her. I am more than disappointed on the craftsmanship, again.

    At least you have the skills and tools to finish it off. Just unfortunate you have to. But at least got it back with barrel as you said.

    When I bought my 06 Dodge pickup the power mirrors became basically non-powered by 6k miles. It was under warranty still,but I had to bring it to them to replace the mirrors,as they would not allow me to do the work. After seeing how many door panels/weather seals were destroyed by "trained" factory technicians in the course of a 45 year professional career of being a mechanic, I decided to live with my manual electric mirrors,rather than have my doors butchered by their "technicians". As much as I want to have faith in the S&W warranty program,stories like this make me pray I never have an issue with my guns I can't fix myself.

    Hogg..is you 21-4 frame case colored? Love to see some photos.

    That looks SO good..and the stags..perfect! I really really LOVE the case colored Turnbull done frames and think they are the most handsome finish ever placed on a S&W revolver. Every single one of them is different...yet related. That is one of the best things about case coloring. Yours is a real beauty!!

    There is so much I could say here about S&W repair center but the truth is for the most part, with a few exceptions they are just gun techs. Just because I can take one apart and do a certain amount of work doesn't make me a gun smith and that's what is going on there. I could bitch an raise hell about it and rightly so, but at the end of the day its still what it is----Hogg

    My 21-4 is the most aggrivating Smith I own( not accurate with anything).......I feel like throwing it down range and leaving it there......However my 22-4 is a sweet heart!
