Welcome to the forum Marshal!

  That sounds like a possibility Lonesome. Disassemble the hand from the gun and check for signs of binding, both on the sides and on the nose. Also Polishing the recess in the frame where the hand rides is a standard tuning procedure.

  You just have to love the entrepreneurs that can create a successful American based gun manufacturing business out of the ashes of someone elses failing enterprise!   <={
  I'm retiring a couple years early because the corporation I work for (ITT Cannon) has decided to transfer our manufacturing facility to Nogales, Mexico. I'm not affected much because I was ready to retire anyway, but I hate too see the younger workers (about 150 of them) put out of a good job. There was no financial reason for this, other than greed, because our subsidiary was consistently making profit in the 40%-50% range. The corporate big shot who pushed for this is named Farooq. I predict the business will be run into the ground and sold off in 2 years because out mismanagement team has done nothing to transfer the technology or train the workers in Nogales.
  Pardon my rant and hijacking of this thread, but I saw the same thing happen to my old employer Hewlett Packard when they decided to sent their manufacturing overseas and become a junk merchant.  I hate seeing corporate bean counters and globalists destroy once good American companys.

  Beware of using a tap. The shank of a drill bit is soft where as the whole tap is hard. Full hard steel is easy to break off and a bear to get out of a hole if it gets stuck. You have to crumble them out with a carbide cutter in a milling machine.
