1911 Question

click to enbiggen

New Springfield Armory 1911-A1.

What would cause the slide to hang up, there is no magazine in the gun, and the slide stop is not engaged, the first and only time I attempted to shoot it, it did not want to go into battery. First thought was, it might be the slide stop. Field stripped the slide does not run smoothly on frame, there does not appear to be any burrs or anything on slide or slide rails. The only change I made was the grips.

So I'm guessing ether the frame or the slide are out of spec? Or they are both within tolerance, but opposite ends of the scale.

Time to send it back to Springfield?

Took it to the dealer today, and he agreed that the slide shouldn't just hang there, so he is shipping it back to Springfield Armory for me.
