Yea, l thought at first your (post) cw was locked up, you were talkin bout slide only. Didnt read clear enough. I would like to have those screwdrivers to take "side" plate off grip for looking and cleaning.
Also. The spring on the slide release needs to be strong. They should have a change and offer it as mail out or mail cw in. I have worked on keepin fingers off but its a safety issue.
