Sig P239 Takedown Issue
I have an issue with my Sig P239 in .40 and am curious if anyone else has run into this, maybe it is normal.
When I try to turn the takedown lever downward it take a HUGE amount o force to turn it. The slide is in the correct takedown postion, the lever is just hard to turn. Also, the recoil spring guide is made of plastic and the little flange at the end is being bent/mushed where it mates to the takedown lever. So it woud appear that when you turn the takedown lever it has to slightly move the recoil guide rod forward agains the pressure of the already compressed recoil spring. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not. Any thoughts or experiences good or bad with yours?
