I did as you said stolen and thats what I am explaining happens when I get it to lock up. I dont know if this will cause extra stress on the slide, or if it will effect the dependability of the slide.
this pic is about the best way to explain what I mean on how it isnt lining up properly. This is the recoil spring sticking out when I have the slide locked in
This what I mean by the slide lock mechanism not fully engaged when the slide is sitting where it should be.
