Having had the opportunity to run a few rounds through a friend's G27 I could not pass up purchasing a very lightly used G27 today. The feed ramp looked brand new and very little wear anywhere on the gun or magazines. One of the first things I do with a new gun is familiarize myself with the takedown procedure. I did that a few times. On the third or fourth run-through, when I got the slide back over the frame and racked it back, the actual recoil spring was poking out of the front of the slide by about 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch. I pulled the trigger and took the slide off again to see if something looked damaged. Nada. Everything looked OK. I did notice that the tab at the back of the recoil spring assembly does have a little bend to it due to the plastic rod I guess. Put it back together with extra care to ensure that the rod was perfectly straight and the error has not repeated. Should I consider this user error or something that maybe is out of tolerance? Thanks for any advice.
