10mm semi-auto handguns / Re: Witness slide stop
« on: January 10, 2018, 05:26:52 AM »
Earl- thats what mine did at first. the problem got progressively worse. very rapidly during one range session!
Intercooler- I e-mailed you some pictures last night I hope they come out  good enough to show some detail of  what I am trying to describe.
squibullet- the pin looks flush with the outside of the slide stop even when it moves but tonight I will try to re-seat it like you described anyway. I hope my pictures come out on Intercooler's computer because they will show that my slide stop wear is on the corner of the squared off inside part of the lug. it is bright and shiny and obviously (to me) rounded from wear. your picture does not show the same wear. (that I can see)
thank you guys again for the interest and help.

I can take a cell phone photo but I am not able to post pictures you want me to text it to you? the slide stop has not been wanting to come out on its own. everything seems normal except the slide won't lock open.

you guys might be right! its not the pin slightly rotating thats the problem. upon further examination, I can see the locking lug on the slide stop  where it catches the slide is visibly worn. I can see that where it doesn't contact the slide, it is sharp and square. where it contacts the slide is shiny and the corner is rounded off on both the forward corner (slightly) and the rear corner. (a lot) it looks like the slide has cut into the slide stop. looks like a lot of metal is gone.  the slide itself doesn't show any wear but the slide stop looks like someone took a file to it!  this is bizarre!  :o I have a 1911 (an old AMT Hardballer) that has just the opposite problem. its slide stop wore the slide's locking notch down and its slide also won't stay open! WTF!! leave it to me to come up with these odd ball problems.

thanks for the replies and links. if I could post a picture you wouldn't see anything. where the pin and lever connect is a real tight fit. unnoticeable until I wiggled it. then I could see the pin slightly rotating in the slide stop lever. it might be able to be repaired by silver soldering or even peening but for the time & trouble I will cough up the $44. for a new one.  :D

10mm semi-auto handguns / Witness slide stop
« on: January 06, 2018, 04:51:16 AM »
yesterday while shooting my Witness steel, I noticed the slide wasn't locking open after the last shot. when I manually tried to lock it open, unless I held the slide stop lever up, it wouldn't stay open. when I took the pistol apart and cleaned it I noticed the slide stop is made of 2 parts, the outside lever and the pin that goes thru the frame. the pin looks like it was pressed into the lever and it is now loose enough that the slide can roll it enough to cause the slide to close. has any one else had this problem? and where can I get another slide stop without having to deal with EAA's crappy customer service? thanks for any help.

congrats on the win! hounds defiantly have a hard headed personality. but they still are my favorite of the dog breeds.

why don't you put a .40 S&W barrel & magazine in it?

looks pretty good!  I like it being able to use readily available high capacity magazines. unlike the Hi Point. I wonder what they will cost?

I wish Hi Point or some one would make high capacity magazines for those carbines. the main reason I don't already have a High Point carbine is the lame 10 round mag.

nice pistol Ganny. I also got a .40 S&W bbl  and mags. for mine the 10mm  factory recoil springs works great with my .40 S&W loads. my barrel dropped right in and has had many rounds thru it with no problems.

have you ever shot a derringer? years ago I bought a .38 spl derringer for my first CCW. I soon found out that there were better options to carry. I still have it. I have loaned it to friends when they said they want a derringer. after they shoot it a few times they are cured. I bet a 10mm derringer would really be a handful when you touch it off!

beautiful Beagle. I like hounds and over the years have had a Redbone, Black & Tan and 2 Beagles.  the little Beagles are definitely the cutest but are still hounds!  all they want to do is sleep, eat and hunt;D

awhile ago I bought some .40 Gold Dot pulled bullets from American Reloading. those bullets had some of the black sealant you are talking about. I wonder what they use to pull massive quantities of bullets without damaging them?
