FIRESTORM 22.. about 1k rounds
Slide always would lock back reliably after last round. all of a sudden it does not hold.. No Change in ammo.. Am guessing the spring is weak or there does seem to be a slight rounding in the rear end of the notch in the slide..In fact, simply pressing the mag release caused the slide to move forward if it is locked back. I have never used the slide release to rack the gun so it is not caused by that.. Unfortunatley it is leading to a few dry fires which I do not want to do.
Ony 1,200 or so rounds through Any thoughts or am I headed to a waranty center?
There seems to be just the slighest bit of a burr forming on the left side and bottom of the rearmost edges of the notch in the slide.. was wondering if some 600 grit sand paper would help or would it affect warranty..
Did not seem to be dirty but I cleaned and lubed the latch.
