Well new to me anyway. I traded a S&W 22a and some cash for it yesterday. I have a question about this gun and I am sure its been answered but I couldn't find it in the search. When there is a round in the chamber and you need to unload isn't the slide supposed to lock back to allow the round to eject? The slide stops about 3/8 of an inch short of locking back and to get the round out you have to wiggle it out of the ejector with your finger in the danger zone. Ouch! :eek: Is this normal or is something wrong? Thanks for the help.

The slide wont lock unless there is a mag in there. You should be able no matter if there is a mag or not to pull the slide all the way back so it can eject that live round. If I were you I would field strip it and check around see if something a miss.

From what I read the slide is not coming all the way back to complete the ejection. Mag or no mag it should come back far enough to eject from what I know.

Does it only do this with a round, or can the slide cycle fully without a round?

I finally got a picture of what the gun is doing. It seems to be hanging up on the loaded chamber indicator. There is a little bit of a hook to the end of it that allows it to stick out to show it's loaded. Anyone heard of this or seen this happen to their gun?

Do not have the 24/7, but I think the PT111 has the same loaded cylinder indicator. If it is not gummed up, "wash it out with some solvent, and reoil the mechanism." It could be dirty.

I think we got it figured out. I have a pt1911 and the slide is very easy to pull back. The 24/7 on the other hand needs a rather firm pull to eject a live round. I do believe i just wasn't pulling hard enough. Thanks for all the suggestions and advice.

My PT1911 is the opposite. It takes a somewhat firm pull to retract the slide while my PT92's slide only displays about 2/3 the amount of resistance.

That would be the difference between the PT1911's 16 lb Recoil Spring and your PT92's 13 lb recoil spring. I've upped my PT92's Recoil Spring to a 15 lb extra power. As most 24/7's use a Captive Recoil Spring Assembly, there is no choice for those yet, but none seems to be required.
