Yikes.. looks like the original Shield problem they had with some of the guide rod assemblies. Send that pic to S&W customer service. They will probably send you a new assembly.

If you've had the firearm apart, is there a chance you didn't get the RSA squarely set?

That pic looks like the RSA is not on its proper Lug 'shelf'. this is nothing new with the Shield line (and other Subcompacts). Usually though, it's from slipping off the shelf completely.
You should be able to grab it with a needle-nose plier and get it back in place. Basically, the rear needs to go onto its proper shelf, so try to pull the front forward to relieve the tension, then try rotating it up, or down (I'm leaning toward up, to get the RSA onto a lower section of the lug).

There may even be a couple Youtube videos out there showing what to do.

Yea but this is the 2nd one in less then one week.. also the right sight was NOT aligned
The chances of having 2 bad RSA's or Shields is a little crazy. Not saying it couldn't happen but I think RobzGunz could be right.
I had a Glock 26 that would do that just about every other time I cleaned it and it was me not looking at what I was doing and set it on the wrong barrel lug. Cleaning guns is like doing laundry. I hate doing both. 🤣
