Executive Target




I have an Ed Brown Executive Target in all SS as well as a couple of Wilsons.

I've heard so much about the slide galling on EBs in SS that I am wary of shooting the gun.

What's the straight story on the galling issue and, if mine does gall, will EB fix it?

Not an issue at all, shoot your gun and enjoy it.

Never heard of slides actually Gauling I have heard of some slight peening on slide stops. I think you are just overly cautious, all stainless guns from all makes and models warn of gauling but soooooo very few actually do. Companies just warn that because when it does happen they can say they warn it. I am sure EB will fix it if in a 1/1000000000 chance it actually does happen.

Seeing how you are super cautious and a little worried you can use Brownells Stainless Slick Grease it makes all surfaces smooth as butter. I used it not because I worry about gauling but I prefer a thicker grease and it really slicks the gun up.

Actual galling...we have had ONE member pop up with that. And while I wasn't there, he did gaul 2 1911 makers stainless pistols the week before. The common denominator is user error. He didn't like hearing that, but...

You are referring to peeing in the slide notch. Lock the slide back and see how the SS sits in the notch.

IMO some wear at that spot is normal. It's a heavy contact spot. Some disagree vehemently with that position.

Incidentally this complaint is mostly seen in 4.25 pistols. Faster timing. More forces.

Regards,
Greyson
