    Question on barrel inside of frame

    So I was looking at m PT145 today and I noticed something. This is kind of hard to explain so please bear with me. If I look at my other pistols the barrel sits right in the middle of the whole in the front of the frame. Basically the barrel is centered in the frame. When I look at my pt145 that isn't the case. The barrel isnt centered. The bottom of the barell touches the bottom of the frame and there is a small gap at the top. Is this normal?

    I have that on my PT111 so I would say normal for the PT series.

    Most ALL mono block pistols have this. Glock, H&K, I would guess Sig and apparently Taurus. This is the pressure point that causes the barrel to "toggle" in the out of battery position allowing ejection and feeding. This is normal to the cyclic operation of the pistol.
