Re: Ruger 57

What is the purpose of the lacquer coating? To increase lubricity to help extraction from the chamber? To help seal the chamber during blowback cycling? To help the timing (slow down or speed up) of the blowback cycle? FN has included a sheet with my pistol that states the gun could blow up without ...

Does the case sizing lube need to be removed? What happens if you don't?
