Have you ever noticed that the gap between the front of the slide is a little more than the back of it ? I guess this is to make sure the dust cover (where the rail is) doesn't drag on the slide.



It's not a big difference but the dust cover of the receiver bends downward somewhat.

Is it normal for me to be able to see from one side to the other under the slide on the back half? I can see daylight, and when I pull the trigger I can see the inner workings move.

Double yep. You can do the same thing with the pinnacle of perfection, da mighty Glock.

Shoot.. I used to have a revolver you could just about stick a finger thru the frame from one side to the other when the cylinder was closed.

I was talking about the gap is somewhat angled where the dustcover is. I'll file this under a by design feature. With my old Glock 17 you could bend the dustcover with your fingers at least the M&P it's a little more rigid..

Yes we know what you were talking about, and yes it is supposed to be that way. It was angled to help cooling.
