    That’s the erosion starting on the face of the cylinder. No wonder why the seller wouldnt post or send me a picture of it when I requested it. I hope S&W will warranty it, I don’t know if they take care of someone other than original owner.

    Well, I might have come out on the short end of the stick it seems. We’ll see. I broke one of my own rules: never buy a dirty gun.

    Yeah, I’m sorry it turned out that way. You’re a good guy.

    Just stick with your original plan to shoot 38s out of it and you’ll be OK.

    Could you coat the face of it with C series cerakote? That should help minimize further damage.

    I dunno...I'm gonna go buy some regular old standard pressure .38's here in a bit and go shoot it tomorrow. I'll see what it looks like after that. Oh and of course, pics. I'll have more pics to show cause we all like pics.

    Right, because you have a stainless steel cylinder in your M&P 340 and it's okay to shoot the lighter magnum rounds out of it. This warning only applies to the Ti cylinder guns.
