    So I tried taking apart my RIA a bit, cleaned it and oiled it and, man, did I EVER have a rough time trying to get my slide stop back in. I got the rest of it back together right away, had it all lined up right and everything, but it just didn't want to drop in there. So just fiddled with it a bit, and eventually it dropped in there so it was actually in there and not partway. Anybody else ever have a pain with slide stops? National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation is on lmao. Well now I just need to buy some ammo and go out to the range.

    OK question

    If you strip it everyday for practice, should you be oiling/silicone cloth every time?
