metal shavings...

i just recently ordered my pm6 and i've heard about the metal shvings problems but is that only with the dm6 or have there been some problems with the pm6's?
also if it does come with shavings would i just clean it up or would i have to ship it back?
thx in advance

My advice would be to take everything apart and clean off all the lube and possibe shavings. If nothing else you would be getting rid of that crap Dye lube.

its always a good idea to relube and clean a gun when you buy it brand new. when they are assembled at the factory they are usually just thrown together with some lube globbed on the rings.

im guessing there have been cases of pm6's with metal shavings..seeing how mine was one of them...nothing big just a brass shaving on the seal retainer of the LPR. just relube everything and than you will see if there are metal shavings in ur gun.

My new DM6 was clean everywhere but in the Hyper reg so I would say at least make sure your reg is metal shavings free.
