Good to hear it. I've been impressed by everything I've picked up from Galloway. They know what they're doing, for sure.

Hi, since no one else posted a pic I figured I could chime in since my sec9 is brand new. Only 200 rounds through it and the hole for the firing pin definitely has a sharp edge. Here is a pic.

I should also add that all 200 rounds went off without a hitch. 115g Sellier & Bellot and some Hornady.

Glad to hear yours is working well for you even though it does look similar to what mine did prior to my modification. I'd guess that "sharp edge" is a relative term and it probably doesn't need much at all off that edge to make a difference, so mine may have been sharper.

At any rate I'm happy to say that since I relieved that edge I've had zero problems with my Security 9. I've used CCI, Winchester and Federal primers and all have worked without a hitch.

I guess if I experience any issues this will be my first course of action. Or since we are all home and bored these days perhaps I will proactively have a go at it!

I was thinking that as the boredom grows I'll probably end up stripping each of my guns down more than the simple field stripping for a more intense cleaning.
