Hi all
Today after cleaning my xdm-45 i went to reassemble the slide on the pistol frame.
This is my fourth time dissasembling the gun as it is only a week old.
First three times slide slid right on the frame like butter.
this time when the slide was an inch or so from all the way on it stopped. after wiggling it slightly it goes back on all the way. I took it off to see if it would do it again and it does. The slide stops right about where the back is right in front of the ejector. I looked but it is not hitting the ejector. It feels like it is catching on something in the front of the frame. Not a big problem just have to wiggle it a little then the slide goes back all the way on to the frame.
It is not getting stuck just wont go back that last inch without a little wiggling.

Its hitting the drop safety lever. When you wiggle it the lever is sliding back down out of the way.
just found out what the problem was after getting out my reading glasses and some strong light and inspecting carefully.
the slide was hitting the small metal piece that stiicks up from frame on back right side of the frame. I think this is part of the trigger bar
