What part failed?

How did it fail?

Why are you asking this? Everything will brake and this subject isn't a very good one for a new member to bring up! MIM and forged parts will break. The only good part about the MIM parts is that it is just as hard in the center as it is on the outside, where the forge parts are surface hard only .006-.008 thick. The frame mount firing pin is a upgrade in my thinking, but there is nothing like a old Smith to look at. We are talking about two different guns. Its like watching Halley Berry and some gal that is a track star, two different worlds and I like them both .
