Yes, the ramped barrels often need more slope than they have out of the box. If you shoot round nose exclusively it may not ever be apparent.

If I had just a little more floor space I would be looking hard at the G0759. Comes with the DRO. I try to stay away from the round column mill/drills, I understand they aren't as rigid.

12 recoil, 19 mainspring. 19 is about as light as I like to go on the mainspring. I've had guns fail to light primers after enough rounds downrange on a lighter mainspring.
