Just got me a new Shield 45. I'm cleaning the packing oil off amd when taking the barrel out of the slide the chamber area is very tight against the slide. I can remove the barrel from the slide but Ive never had a pistol barrel this tight to remove. I'll post some pictures below . The squared portion of the barrel against the slides rails is very tight. Do any of you 45 owners have this same thing ?

I don't have a Shield 45. Chiming in to see what others may have to say. Does it talk about this in the manual?

Nothing about the tightness is mentioned in the manual. I've field stripped it , cleaned it and put it back together but it's really tight in the barrel chamber to slide rail area .

It kinda seems like SW used the 9mm and 40 slide and just made the hole for the muzzle bigger to accept the 45 barrel . I'm sure this isn't the case but it's the best way to describe the situation. I went in my backyard and test fired it. It ran great .

I have had M&P 9 2.0 for a couple yrs now and also noticed that when it was brand new that turning the barrel in the slide it would lock in also. I don't notice that happening much any more after over a thousand rounds thru it.
