    Default G43 problem

    Does anyone have any ideas on why the slide would randomly just come off sometimes during dry firing??

    thanks!

    Your takedown bar might be in the frame backwards, or the spring might be malfunctioning. That bar should have the groove facing toward the rear; it hooks into the front of the barrel lug to stop forward slide movement.

    How much tension in on the take down section? First make sure the orientation is correct, then determine that it has sufficient tension in the upward position. I guessing that this is the problem. Usually its someone getting a part in backwards/upside down, misinstalling a spring, or forgetting a part during a detailed strip.

    I comes off AFTER pulling the trigger?

    First thing I would check is the correct installation of the slide lock.
