Play in relation to the barrel and slide? When in full battery my barrel moves side to side a good deal? Should it be locked in place?
Jumping Frog":2qooog1h said:Yeah, that would be a problem. There is a trade-off around gun tightness. More tight helps it to be more accurate. Less tight helps it to digest ammo more reliably. (Look at the slop built into AK's versus AR's.)
Is the gun accurate enough for your puposes? How much slop are you talking? Why not post a video?

Try putting a snap cap in it and I'll bet that play goes away.
A gun's locking can be tight and still fire just about any kind of ammo you throw at it.
1911's can do it, so can Sigs and CZ's, most of their barrels also lock in the slide with a series of lugs. Some of those pistols also employ a barrel bushing in the slide.
I have shot quite a few tight guns that have fed everthing. I don't buy the tight vs. loose argument as far as reliability goes.

Rev, I have shot some real loose 1911's well enough but the slide must stay on axis with the barrel for the sites to stay in alignment.

Did your groups start to open up after you put the stock striker in? Just a thought.
I've noticed when I dry fire my 1911 the sights stay on target when the trigger breaks, with the SR9 I always get some movement away from the aimpoint.
