Oh shit! I like your rough chamber theory.

My K-20 has rusty chambers. The previous owner didn't use oil-mop snap caps or a Bore Snake after shooting and the chambers are rusty. The loaded rounds don't drop into the chambers from gravity alone. I have to push them in. Lightly, but I still have to push them in.

The chamber corrosion is very light and I never paid attention to it because it's the light type of corrosion that will likely brush out with PB Blaster and a stiff bronze chamber brush.

Sticky hulls would certainly explain why the gun was hard to open but works fine dry.

Thanks for the idea. I'll scrub out the chambers.
