Just took down the Springfield Operator for the first time. I scrubbed all the cabon out, dried, reassembled, and oiled. Its probably always done it, but with the slide all the way back, ease it forward about a quarter of an inch and there's a slight hang. It doesn't keep the pistol from working, I just want to prevent a malfunction in case this could cause one when the pistol is dirty again.

Anybody got an idea of something I could polish? Where it would be? Or just live with it?

Disconector. It has to do that to reset the trigger.

Disconnector, doesn't allow the trigger to be pulled until the slide is forward. One could polish it and the face it rides on, but not incredibly necessary.

May have some drag on the seat spring leaves connected to the disconnector that need polishing.

After I launched the retainer across the kitchen twice I highly doubt it.

The first time I took mine apart, I think I took out the lamp shade.

Weird... My glock doesn't do that... Lol just kidding. However my both of my RIA 1911's did that. I just figured it was because they weren't the highest quality guns.

Do any of you actually use gun grease on your slides? I have started doing this on a new ss Sr1911.

I've been waiting on you and your danged Glocks, and their reliability, and how easy they are to take down. Well stow it AR-10 user that had jams on my rifle range while my bolt actions keep working RELIABLY.
