G4 Field Strip Question

I have owned many Glocks, and with all of them, when the slide is moved forward during field stripping it comes off perfectly straight, on the rails.
I recently purchased a G19 and G23 (Gen4) and, when you filed strip weapon moving the slide forward, both slides want to come off slightly canted to the left.
The only thing that has changed is the recoil spring and guide rod so I figure it is a function of that.

Thoughts, anyone? Thank you so much for your input.

Sounds like recoil spring is pushing slightly on barrel , slight warp
in spring. Nothing to worry though.
Also , look on right side of slide for scratch , Trigger bar ?

I think it's because of the bump in the vertical extension of the trigger bar. There's a dimple on the right side of the vertical extension. It pushes on the horizontal hump in the slide (the one that pushes the connector over) when you're sliding the slide off. I have 2 Gen4's, a G19 and a G17, and they both do what you describe.

Completely normal for all gen 4's. It will smooth out with use.

this is correct.....if i ever purchase a gen 4, i will either replace the trigger bar with a gen 3 bumpless, or i will grind off the bump....do a youtube search for gen 4 trigger bar...

its a lawyers bump

^^ This is the cause, normal for Gen4s.
