    Hey everyone,

    Tonight I decided to clean my Glock 17 for the first time. As I was removing the slide, I carelessly let it fall from my hands and hit the floor. It fell about 3.5 feet onto some tile.

    Unfortunately, now the slide won't fit fully back onto the body. I'm afraid to give it much force since it never required much previously.

    Sorry for the quality of these pictures, but hopefully you guys can help pinpoint the problem and offer advice on how I need to fix it:

    This pic shows where the slide stops as I try to reassemble:

    I appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks.
