rj and burley already know about the beginning of my problems, but it keeps coming. so i got the infamous bulging grip problem due to the assembly pin spring popping out of it's slot, and when i attempted to disassemble the gun, the slide was STUCK. rj helped me get it off, and proceeded to take the frame out of the grip, put a small groove in the pin's slot, fiddle around with the mag catch a bit more, and put it all back together. now, here's where the nasty part starts. when i went to put the slide back on, it wouldn't go at all at first, and with some coaxing it finally went, but it would NOT hand cycle or slingshot smoothly. and it was almost as difficult to get off as it was in the first place. plus the grip is still bulged. WTF do i do with this thing? i'm totally stuck cos i've never had a problem anything like this before. will work on getting some pictures up for this thing.
