Oh man......I wish I hadn't done that.

Did you know that while replacing the slide, if you push the ejector too far down, it doesn't return to upright position unless you remove the hammer and sear spring. Yup. So be careful and stay focused!

I guess if nothing else, I gained a better understanding of how the gun functions!

When I first purchased my Micro the smith at my LGS pointed that potential issue out to me. He said he's had to fix the problem on many of the Colt clones. You'd think there could be a way to improve that aspect of the design?
Glad you were able to fix yours Doc :-)
