Went shooting today, and brought along my 400 with 100 rounds of surplus Toledo 1949 ammo (not the best around-10% misfires, but got a good price on it). Anyway, when I got home I started to clean it(corrosive ammo you know), and noticed that the rear frame rail is cracked about ¾" from the back of the frame going diagonally down to the rear of the frame. Looks like it will eventually break away. I could probably shoot it like this, as there is still considerable bearing surface on the remaining rail, but dang, this is such a tack driver! Anyway, I'll start looking for either a frame, or another gun and have lots of spare parts. In the meantime I still have about 250 rounds of the Toledo stuff left, and 2,000 rounds of 1963 Santa Barbara ammo, PLUS 500 Starline cases. Might need to find a Star "A" as well .
