I just bought a used Tomcat from a guy and was hoping someone could help out. He told me the gun hadn't been fired in a long time and needed to be cleaned real bad. Well, prior to selling, he cleaned it pretty good. When I pull the slide back, it's real tight. Not rip-your-fingers-off tight, but a lot tighter than what I expected. Once it gets about halfway back, it kind feels like it catches a little, then goes all the way back. And once the slide is to the rear, I can go forward about half-way, back and forth pretty easy. Is this the norm? I just wondered if that small caliber is going to rack the slide back. I have never owned a small caliber weapon and just want to make sure it's safe. I'm not a complete moron when it comes to guns but just thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance, Jeff Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
