I've watched some videos and put the gun back together but some things are still bothering me.
1. When the slide is put back together, should it look like this?
It doesn't seem right being at an angle like that. When I took it apart, I first took the slide off. Then I removed the spring etc. But when putting it back together, do you have to first put the frame and pin on it and THEN put the spring in, or should I assemble the slide first?
2. Should the open ended end of the spring (as opposed to the closed end) go into the spring holder like this? I think this is what the manual is referring to when it says "Install the recoil spring with the open end in the recoil spring plug."
Thanks and I hope this makes sense.
When I reassembled, the gun cocks back and loads a round OK. But I haven't had a chance to go to the range yet to test her.
