No. That is the slide stop lever.I think I am lost here. The slide lock is the level that locks the slide back, correct and that is what broken off?
On my 19/3, it is connected to something inside the body, so how can it come off, or did it break a part? or do I have the wrong part?
just trying to learn
OK, I can see just what your talking about.No. That is the slide stop lever.
The slide lock is the little plastic part you hold down on both sides when you field strip the pistol, removing the slide from the frame. Take the slide off your pistol. If you look underneath the slide lock you will see the metal spring.
The issue apparently was caused by the spring breaking. Once the spring broke, the pressure was gone. At that point, the slide lock fell out.OK, I can see just what your talking about.
It's hard to believe that the part fell out, I would think there would be enough pressure to hold it in place
He said it was originally installed incorrectly. Not sure how as there can't be that many ways it could have been installed.Did they give you any idea of what happened?
What caused it to break?
True. It can only go in one way.He said it was originally installed incorrectly. Not sure how as there can't be that many ways it could have been installed.
Truer words have never been written!!!Yep. I call it a ND because I don't believe there are any accidents when it comes to this type of stuff. A gun going off when it wasn't supposed to is caused by something, generally operator error.
