Thing is, I don't think I've put over 500 rounds through it in all of those years and it doesn't "get out" much. Thought of using it for concealed carry for oh maybe two or three seconds, 'cause it's kind of hard to conceal something with a 6 1/2 in barrel.
Could the leather have gotten wet somehow and the wet leather rubbing against the steel frame cause your problems? It's a thought . . .
Thought of that but its kind of strange how its only the frame.The trigger,hammer,cylinder,cylinder release and barrel have no marks

Born on a mountain raised in a cave huntin and fishin is all I crave
