Compared to the Springer and Colt models it is more difficult to assemble. For some reason, I kept experiencing difficulty when putting the slide back on the frame. It just wouldn't go back together. I had msyelf, and another range officer trying to put it back together while double checking the owners manual and we both still really had a hard time.
My old S/W5906 was a pain to reassemble also. My Sigs, Glock, Springer, and Bersa are all much easier.
Sorry if this doesn't answer your question very well but I don't know how to explain it better.

Desperado, your story is not an unfamiliar one. One of my officers had field stripped his Glock 22 at the range prior to qualifying and dropped the slide on the concrete floor. Needless to say, hit hit on a rear corner and bent the rail slightly. The officer supposedly took it to a gunsmith who tried to straighten it ( I think he tried to do it himself). Luckily I had the Chief's backing and insisted on inspecting it before he tried to carry it on duty again. The Rocket Scientist cracked the metal when trying to straighten it. I immediately dead lined the pistol and required that it be sent back to Glock. Glock's customer service is great, but their response was the same as S&W's was to you. You dropped it, you broke it, not a warranty problem. If you had been reassembling the weapon over a bench, or table, it would not have happened, so it was not their fault.

are you keeping your hand off the grip safety? is the barrel lug getting out of line?
