Anyone have a source for a regular length Argentine FM HI Power slide? I think Sarco has the "detective" kits with the shorter slide and barrel. I need the slide only. Any FFL's maybe have a line?

EDIT: Would an FN slide work? Could I get one of those easier?

yes, any FN/browning or FEG slide would work. I recently sold an FEG slide that I didn't need. You may want to check www.fnhipower.com since slides turn up there from time to time.

I bet that Sarco in NJ will have parts. Their web site is something like sarcoinc.com.

You can buy mine, but you have to guy the rest of the gun too.

Never mind guys, thanks for replying, but I fixed it!!!!!

There was a circular groove in the breechface around the firing pin. Apparently the tool had a burr when it was milled. This groove also had sharp edges, and was bad enough that a cartridge rim would catch on it occasioinally and the gun would jam with the fresh round partially chambered. I carefully polished the breech face with a dremel and a fine stone, then a felt pad with metal polish. I didn't get it out completely (it's too deep), I only polished down the centerline of the slide, in a line from the firing pin hole to the bottom of the slide. While I was at it, I polished the feed ramp to a nice mirror finish. It cycles like butter now, with NO hangups.
