This is the proper forum to use for troubleshooting, gunsmithing and refinishing questions.
If you have a problem with your pistol, this is the proper forum to ask for help.
Before you do post your question though, you may want to have a look in the Gunsmithing Sticky Threads sub-forum, in here.
We have collected several interesting articles in there, which can probably answer a lot of your questions.
