Slide lock starting to fail
Posted 20 January 2013 - 02:37 PM
So after many rounds and wear and tear, the slide is starting to fail to lock back on the last round. Now I am wondering what is the simplest or easiest way to get the lever to push up higher into the slot (where it locks) when the mag is empty?
The back of the slot itself IS starting to get rounded, but I think that's not too big of a problem as long as the lever can be pushed up higher on an empty mag.

What slot are you talking about? Also, can you lock the slide to the rear if you manually push up on the slide lock when racking the slide back?

Checked the magazine spring and bb follower, made sure there weren't any burrs that were preventing it going as far up as it can.
What I believe to be the problem, is the slot in which the slide lock lever goes up into is worn a little bit. And because the magazine doesn't seem to push the lever as high as it can go, it catches the slide only half way in the little slot, instead of fully engaging it (slock lock going all the way up to the top of the slot). Because it is a little big worn, going up half way into the slot it easily slides out since some of the material is worn away on the slide. Dunno if i'm explaining it clear enough haha, if not I'll get a picture of what I am talking about.

Or, sending it in is another option.
