Bad scandium frame?

Anyone having any problems with scandium frame revolvers? I bought a model 327 PC,shot 12 rounds .357 and 24 rounds of .38, all158 gr bullets and had frame develop a crack running from hammer slot over to cylinder. Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else.

Bad scandium frame?

I have the 329pd 44 mag and the m&p r8 357 mag with the scandium frames and haven't had no issues. The r8 has upwards of 500 rds of 357 mag and close to a 1000 38 sp and 38 +p's. The 329pd is right around 800 rounds of nothing but 44 mag.
Also have the s&w scandium framed 1911 and no problems with it either. I'd call s&w and see what they wanna do, I'd imagine they will take care of it.

I have a 340sc that has about 1k rounds and the only problem I have had is the finish came off the first year and nobody says they can refinish it.
I have a 1911pd commander with no problems also.

We have both M&P R8 and TRR8 pistols, mostly 38sp/+p through them, with no problems to report (except a singed thumb from some hot 357 Mag. loads). Our M&P 340ct has not fared as well, it has some blast erosion, but there are no cracks.

KRWeiss-

I am considering a 340pd with CT. Is this the same model as yours with the blast erosion? Do you not recommend this model?

The 02/15 issue of Gun-Tests magazine had an article about a S&W 642 Airweight that had a cracked frame where the barrel screws into the frame. S&W replaced the revolver!

Sounds like the OP mistook the sideplate seam for a crack.

This is not an uncommon issue.
