    Some of the parts are pressed in with an arbor press and it's likely you don't have the capability to take it apart especially the aluminum. Magma can rehab it for you to like new. The search engine at the top right of this page has lots of info.

    Very true. while I shoot all the common semi-auto calibers, 40 is my fav...part of it being favored is that I got buckets and buckets of range brass, back when it was selling for less than recycle prices...some was less then 1 per pc.

    Yes the "enhanced by google" is new. You should know that they record everything here for later use. Those of you that post pics of their guns or loading rooms, well, they have it. Loose lips sink ships!
