I have a Springfield Loaded and have a problem I can best describe as the slide would not go back to full battery. I took it apartand it was really very hard to get the slide off the frame (BTW- I have taken the slide off of the frame cleaned the barrel several times before after shooting. Not my first time to do this)removed the barrel and placed it on the frame and put the pin that holds the link into the frame in place and verified the barrel/link works like it should. I removed the barrel from the frame and just tried to put the slide onto the frame. I would take extreme force to even get the slide back on the frame and make it move. Also the spring guide rod (at the back part that supports the barrel) has one of the "ears" broken off. This gun has never had any +P or ++P ammo shot in it. Is this something I should send to Springfield to check into?
