I have a quick question and didn't see it posted anwhere else. I shot my LCp for the first time the other day. I took it apart, cleaned it and put it back together. Later on I was showing someone the LCP and they commented on how much the barrell moves. (back and forth, up and down) when the slide is locked open. I don't remember this before. But then again, I don't remember checking that. It that normal? Yes, I am sure I put it back together the right way. :) But is there alot of play in the LCP barrel? Once you close the slide, everything is tight. Thanks.

I thought so, but with all the other issues, I figured I better check. I just never noticed it. Thanks for the fast response.

machine,

The barrel is supposed to when the slide is in the rear postion, the barrel becomes unlocked---this is thefunction of the Browning modified barrel system. All of my glocks due the same, when the slide is to the rear, but when the slide moves forward the barrel and slide locks up tight as a drum. Well it is supposed to unless something is wrong. I think rugar has always used a different system then the one instituted with the LCP.

best regards,

Thanks. Yeah, my Glocks have some play, but the LCP seemed to be alot more. Maybe just noticable more due to size? Maybe I am just worried? But either way, I am glad that this is normal on the LCP. You guys are great....thanks for the help.

machine ,

Does the barrel lockup tight when the slide is in the normal postion?????
If so, everthing is ok. if not , then accuracy could be affected or there is some debris on the locking block of the frame, and barrel or maybe some defective part.-- it doesn't hurt to check.


best regards,

It's a locked-breech action, using a tilting barrel design like the 1911. Retracting the slide on my 1911 results in a similar movement (although admittedly not quite as much).
