Hey guys, thanks for the quick replies.
I've tried tightening it down all the way but there doesn't seem to be any where to go past when it stops turning, but i'll try my best to snug it down tighter.
Also, I thought about loctite, but wont that be a pain every time i go to clean the gun? unless I could depress the end cap enough to remove the barrel bushing, i'd have to break the loctite every time i wanted to do more than take the slide off.
As I mentioned, i've read about folks shortening the rod by a few mm so that they can push down the end cap enough and disassemble the gun like normal, and turning it into a 1 piece, essentially.
If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat!
