    What?
    it's my first handgun so i'm going to ask some dumb questions so don't mind me.


    when you pull the slide and lock it back. is it normal for you to be able to move the barrel? i can move mine back and forth a few mm.

    Yes it's normal, when the slide is back the barrel is not locked so it will have some play.

    It's like that on all semi-auto pistols. When the slide goes forward though and locks into batery, the barrel should not be able to be moved and be locked in place.

    nope..

    the makarov for example, barrel is pressed fitted, its constantly in a fixed position

    weapons that are made loose to be more reliable tend to have things move around like that, glocks, XD's etc, mil spec 1911's

    match grade guns and stuff like kimber etc are made very tight, higher chance that dirt will produce a FTF, loose guns are less accurate but will pretty much work under any circumstances.

    except that you don't :squint:

    all loose guns are less accurate than tight guns.

    sackriding = blindness to the truth :mamoru:
