Okay, I wnet back and started over, this time without that godawful spring thier, so I could really pay attention to what was happening.
The little nubby part that the link is attached to under the barrel does not line up with the hole in the frame when the slide is "in battery".. Maybe that is what you were talking about.
I just put the peieces back into the original guns until I can get a real smith to fix it.
Some of you may find this simplistic, but I am of the opinion that Motocrycle Mechanics, Pit Crews and Gun smiths exsit for a reason.. If I start paying attention to their
jobs I'll not only be hurting the economy (by removing the need for their jobs).. I'll be taking away from my shooting, riding and driving time.
