Model HSC Pistol / Re: HSc Break Point

The photo is from a Variation One.  I have seen this on 1940, 1941,1942 and 1943 production year examples, but not any latter serial numbered examples.  Sure is an odd location for a problem.

Let me see, if I can upload attachment.  I have not tried that yet.  The fracture starts as a hair line, then proceeds into an obvious separation both above and below the slide guide.  It also makes the gun difficult to break down.  If you are having a problem with the slide not moving forward on take down be sure and look at this location.  I have seen the slide hang up on that fracture line/separation within the right side guide.     Looking for a good photo now on my files.  Will do my best to post one as soon as possible.

The slide grove is broken into a front and a rear section.  I am finding the rear of the front slide grove to be damaged more than any other location.  I would think the rear slide grove would take the full affect of the recoil, so I don't understand the failures located in the front section.  It would seem this area of the slide would be safer from damage.  I see it on the right, but not the left side at all.  I would agree, it is an odd location to be for a frame failure.  Every gun I buy that is the first place I check out.

Has anyone noticed the common breaking point location of the WW11 HSc?  I have found a high percentage at upper right, rear slide grove location cracks.  Does anyone equate that to a design flaw or just perhaps hot loads in an old gun.  It seems a bit common in my inspections.

I enjoy it!!!   I think someone has put allot of thought and work in setting it up and I congratulate them on their fine efforts!

They may be fine pistols, but they just don't have any style to them.  Sorry men.  This model is not for me.

I have always enjoyed seeing the British proofs. Nice looking example.
