Criticizing manufacturers gets me in trouble here so perish the thought,this issue
is definitely not cosmetic,when the slide goes into battery it pushes the barrel
and the link cams it up and locks it.Lock is the operative word the whole thing is
locked there should not be any any play.That some 1911s with this defect work
anyway is a tribute to Mr Browning's design brilliancy.Send it back man or maybe
why did you buy it in the firs t place?
