    I just picked up an Inglis Hi-Power made in 1944. Over all the weapon is in very good condition for it's age and it feeds and ejects anything I put in it with ultra reliability. Even hollow points.

    But, I noticed today that the slide is riding about 1/16 of an inch forward on the frame. You can see a small portion of the rails at the rear of the slide.

    With the safety on, I can push the frame backwards to cover the rails completely, but it moves forward again after pressure is released.

    At first, I thought that the slide stop was undersized, but that seems not to be the case. The ring end (for those familiar with Hi-Powers) of the recoil spring guide rod seems worn and slightly thin. Could this be allowing a forward movement?

    What would cause the slide to sit forward on the frame? Any ideas?

    You might want to post this question in the gunsmith section as well.
