Were you using grease or oil on the rails? If oil, was it applied immediately before shooting?

With a high quality grease a thousand rounds or more between cleanings shouldn't be a problem. Oil...

I use 0000 steel wool lubricated with a little oil. You'd need to scrub for a long time with this to do any damage to the blueing.

Probably over crimping on the plated bullets.

Crimp just enough to meet the SAAMI spec at the case mouth. In the case of 9mm, that's .380, maybe down to .377....

If she can't rack the slide, how will she pull a 12 to 14 pound double action trigger? A cocked hammer isn't a good threat management tool.

I respectfully disagree. While proper installation can give a better service life, if you shoot enough, a staked sight will eventually come off. The original GI sights were very small and light,...
