Remove barrel?

Sponsored Links
I figured out that my PPK/S won't feed hollow-points because the flat of the bullet hits the flat part of the barrel at the bottom. I could easily relieve, contour and polish that spot if I first remove the barrel from the frame. How difficult is that to do? Any guidance much appreciated!

Are you sure it's the barrel. My PP had the same problem and I found it was the magazine. I also polished the feed ramp and barrel throat while it was still attatched. I used a dremel buffing wheel and some Flitz and it looks like a mirror. That, along with adjusting the mag solved the problem.

John B: Just curious....is your pistol an Interarms import? It was fairly common for them to have feeding problems with hollowpoints. S&W versions have the ramp smoothed and mated to the barrel. As to smoothing it yourslef...not sure I'd recommend that. If you goof up....well...it will be costly.
