Hey all, I'm new here and need advice on a Glock build I am knee deep in.

The slide and frame do not seem to align. The frame is a Glock gen 4 9mm frame and the slide barrel and recoil spring assembly are lone wolf gen 4 9mm. Most other parts are glock or lone wolf. I have not shot the gun yet, but it dry fires and functions 100% normally. I am concerned that the slide and frame do not perfectly align. See pictures. Is this acceptable? can i shoot it like this? What part do i need to adjust or replace in order to fix this alignment?

Thank you in advance for any and all help!

Check your slide lock
thank you. I removed and re-installed the slide lock. It seems to be in working order and definitely facing the right direction. It’s a lone wolf slide lock. Anything in particular. I should check for on the slide lock?

They work best when parts are installed correctly, OEM or aftermarket.

Any other ideas? The slide and frame still do not match up with an OEM guide rod/ recoil assembly and slide lock.
