Yeah.

You need to practice with that weapon.

You need to run some rounds thru it and break that Baby in.

You oil it.
You feed it.
You respect it.

You end up loving it, and it's a love that will never be extinguished.

Then she will open up and she will show you all that she has to offer. And all that she can do for you.

Happy Walrus = Tight Seal!

Tight Slide Release = New Dan Wesson!

GET 'ER DIRTY!!! Put some range sweat on 'er.

DO NOT TAKE A FILE TO HER! Enjoy the newness, embrace the newness, be the newness!

It's not broken in until you get some of your blood & sweat on her.

Not to worry, she will scrub up well.

Does it have a plastic MSH or does DW use metal?

Hey Jusselin, hang with me and I can help empty your wallet with all type of DIY bling!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

If you're trying to drop the slide with an empty mag in place - the slide release is supposed to be hard as the mag follower is pressing up against it. Try it without the mag installed and you'll see a difference.

Dan Wessons are built fairly tight - you need to put a lot of rounds thru it to get it broken in well...

Be careful dropping the slide on an empty chamber, from what Ive read it can damage the sear. Dont place a round in the chamber then drop the slide it can damage the extractor, load from the magazine.
Load snap caps from the magazine if you're function testing or practicing dry.
Not trying to tell ya what to do, I'm new to 1911's myself but that's what Ive read. One of the more experienced guys may "learn me" different.
