All right.

So, I stripped everything down and Tom called it. I really didn't LOOK at it before as I was focused on other things but the slide stop and the slide notched were rounded.

Though I usually only tackle issues one at a time, it was so evident what needed done that I did some judicious file work, cleaned the grease from the slide stop and side plate and blued everything and re-assembled. Then I cannibalized a new mag spring from a Beretta NEOS magazine. It was several coils longer and felt real good. Quite frankly, most of my mags are NOS that I have had for some time but I thought I'd put a little pep in the step of one of my mags, regardless.

Gonna test it tomorrow.

Thank you, Tom and everyone!
