locosteelersfan, i think what you said is what's going on ... the takedown level, depressing that springloaded fold of metal isn't very strong...
the hot load i first noticed it with was the cor-bon powrball. since then, it seems to only be getting worse, it happened the other day with fiocchi 170gr. WWB, and wolf (in 180gr) don't give it any problems.
and yes, i always keep the M6 attached, as that's the way i carry.
blkhawk, yeah, i saw those... seem a little pricey though... especially because the M6 wasn't cheap either![/b]
