To be more precise, I can press downward on the front end of the slide (in either trigger forward or trigger back position) and get movement. It is slight but still definite movement.
Can anyone advise if this movement is normal?
First and foremost, congratulations on your new G23, and welcome to GT. Glocks are not known for tight tolerances. Which is why they'll run flawlessly even when you neglect to clean them. I'd say the movement you're questioning is no cause for concern.
