    Aiming to, just down the street from me. Had a bit of work come through last night that’ll keep me busy all day.

    others can learn from this

    I didn’t think of forcing the slide forward. I didn’t think there wasn’t any more movement since I was letting the full force of the springs close the slide. Still after 20 attempts I have to force it forward. I should have rounds down range today or by the end of the week.

    Gun oil when applied too heavy will slow and sometimes stop forward motion on a well fitted slide.SA Pro's are hard fit....you gotta a tight and right hand gun!

    After a few hundred rounds, it will likely settle into battery on its own. Gun still breaking in. Yes, for a $3k gun that's not what you should do, but Les Baer would tell you to shoot it a few hundred more rounds before sending it in.

    Congrats on a good looking gun. Nice grips btw. LOVE the simple clean look.
