    flip,

    Have your friends contact Doug Braker (Gun Dr on this site). He is the guru of all things 90T. Google his name for contact info.

    I've yet to see a 90-T with a firng pin hole enlarging...it just doesn't happen.

    IF, there were a problem, the hole should actually peen itself smaller.

    What appears to many of an enlarged hole is really an optical illusion. The firing pin does not come out of the face of the receiver at a 90 degree angle. It protrudes at an angle. So because the hole in the receiver is angled, it gives the appearance of an oversize hole.

    If you would remove the firing pin an slip a numbered drill bit into the hole from the receiver's face, you'll see that the hole's edges are tight to the bit.

    The 90-T receiver is made of 4140 heat-treated tool steel. It just isn't soft like a Perazzi or Rem 3200.

    It wasn't a flinch. After I had replied and hit "submit", I waited 10 minutes for the page to change, after that, I copied what I had written, and pasted it to a refreshed TS.com page.

    Apparently the reply was submitted, but didn't tell me so.
