S & W 1006 Stovepiping

Recommended Posts

Guys, I just bought a 1006 off Gunbroker and it stovepipes with the three loads I shot (DoubleTap 180 gr. HP; Underwood 180 gr. HP & Underwood 165 gr. HP). Any ideas on how to cure this? Also, do any of you know of any gunsmiths who are VERY familiar with the Smith 1000 series 10mm's and would be able to work on this if necessary?

 

Thanks for your help.

How does it do with weak ammo? What's the history on the mag and recoil spring? What are they rated at?

I haven't shot any weak ammo, only the ones I mentioned. I did replace the 18lb. factory standard recoil spring with a 20lb. spring. I have not (yet) replaced the magazine springs. That's my next step. I have a dilemma about which recoil spring to use (18lb. or 20lb.). I'm thinking this gun was designed with the original hot Norma loads in mind which leads me to believe that maybe the 18lb. factory spring would be adequate. That said, I don't want these hot Underwoods to beat up the gun--hence the 20lb. spring. Which would you suggest?

I have a 22lb. spring in my Match. I would go with the 20lb.

 

 

Are you sure you aren't limp wristing it? If not then I would look at the mag springs and/or possibly try some lesser 10mm offerings to see how it acts.

Had that problem with my Springfield Omega a while back, it ended up being the extractor. Might have a look there, I replaced the mag springs and got new mags. Someone had mentioned to me to check the extractor, replaced it works like a champ.

maxsnafu, you might find some debris build up under the extractor or a weak extractor spring. Loog for damage of the extractor also. I suggest you do a good cleaning and check for case tention as it is pulled from the chamber.

 

There are 3 You Tube videos to help disassembly...the 3rd video deals with the slide. Be aware of the small springs and pins in the decocker drum, don't loose them or mix them up! Watch it video several times to get a feel for the process.

Also look at the ejector in the frame for damage, some people have ground them down to limit the distance of ejection, I left my stock.

 

Smith & Wesson has the generic manual for download from here; http://www.smith-wesson.com/wcsstore/SmWes...al_05_30_11.pdf or mail out if you call and ask.

 

It maybe that the casing is being let go due to slide speed, I use the Wolff Gun Springs 22 lb recoil spring for my S&W 1006, although I never had an issue with the factory spring other than the brass being tossed 25' rear and right. The 22lb spring helped that situation.
