My SR9 is exhibiting peening on the barrel block crown. The peening does not appear to be affecting the firearm, and does not come into contact with the slide during function.
Is the gun OK to use?
The barrel will usually form a small burr across the top of the locking surface. If the barrel exhibits more than a .005" burr and shows signs of metal displacement rearward, at your convenience, call Customer Service in Prescott Arizona (928/778-6555), and we will be happy to help with this issue. We can make arrangements to ship your pistol back for repair.
