I posted this in 'Gunsmithing & Troubleshooting' but I think this forum may get more traffic.

I have a Colt .25 Automatic pistol that was made in the early 70s. It looks kind of like this one:



The gun has a problem where the barrel will rotate while firing and the slide will lock back on the barrel. The barrel has a set of grooves that rotate in a set of grooves on the frame to allow the barrel to be removed during field stripping. Here is a picture of removing the barrel:



Also, here is a great breakdown on the disassembly:

Has anyone ever ran across this problem with this type of pistol? Any recommendations for tightening the grooves connection between the barrel and frame?

Thanks much.

This is no job for a home gunsmith, IMO. I'd either call Colt custom shop or maybe the American Top 100 Gunsmith Guild society for Colt specialists.
