Clinking sound after detail stripping...Is it normal?

    After 300 rounds of breaking in, I decided to detail strip my G19 for cleaning purposes. After re-assembling it, now I can hear the firing pin making a clinking sound. (When you shake the gun) This clinking sound was not there before or if it was, it was not that loud.
    The sound disappears when you rack the slide though.

    Btw, if I misplace the slide lock spring, can I buy a replacement spring?

    Thanks!

    If it sounds "glok-glok-glok" that's normal, but clink-clink there's something definitely wrong.;)

    You can buy the slide lock spring at the Final Option in Makati Cinema square.
