I had just noticed my slide on my pt111 pro can move side to side a bit. The gun has about 1000 rds through it and has had zero problems. Is this normal? Does yours do it?

Are you referring to when the slide is locked back or in the loaded position cause mine in the loaded position very tight

The pin is in properly and it is on the rails properly.

It is just a slight loseness at the end of the gun. It wont move if you try to wiggle it in the middle or back, where the frame rails are. I am not really that worried about it. Just curious if this is common with these guns.

Mine has always had a little wiggle, when locked and loaded but nothing that would affect the shooting. I worried about everything, including the barrel seeming to be loose in the slide. I originally thought that guns should not have a barrel that tipped up when the slide was locked back. I have learned a lot in the last year, from the guys here.

No wiggle here in my PT140 Mill Pro with ~550 rounds through it.

PT145, just a little. PT111, virtually none. Both shoot sweet without issues. :thumb:

So a couple of yours do also. I went and looked at a couple brand new ones at the store this weekend, and they have the exact same movement. I dont think it will be an issue.

It really has been a pretty good gun thus far.

My 145 has just a little at the very front of the slide. Never noticed it before you brought it up, but it hits where I point it, so no worries here.

ditto! But on a 3rd Gen. PT111 Mil Pro.

P.S. If it ain't broke, don't fix it is my motto!

My PT111 Pro has about 3000 rounds through it with just a little wiggle to it but its been that way since new and has not gotten any worse with all the rounds through it so I guess it just depends on how it fit at the factory
