I cleaned my gun for the first time the other day and when I put the barrel and slide back together but still had the slide racked, the barrel is very loose and just doesn't seem right. Is this normal? I didn't notice before cleaning if it was this way. Did I mess up on my cleaning?
Welcome! I have an SR9 full size. My barrel moves "Slightly" when the slide is locked back. If your concerned, take it into the GS where you got it and have them check it out for you. No harm in being careful. By comparison, my LC9's barrel Does Not move at all when the slide is locked back.
