Slop in the slide on xd 40

I noticed today if i wiggle my slide when on the pistol side to side it has some slop or wiggles. Is this normal? Loose for better reliablity in harsh conditions? I was just curious if your guys slides kinda wiggle or have any slop?

Nearly every Service pistol has loose tolerances to let them function when dirty. They reach a certain level of crudness and then the crud just starts getting pumped out by the actions of the moving parts.

Enter AK-47, the most reliable firearm ever made.

As long as the barrel locks up tight in the same spot, no issue.

It's a combat handgun not a custom fitted 1911, it's fine.
