i wanted to share that my trusty G35 cracked the right rear slide rail at a match yesterday. It went single action for 7 shots then stopped when it ceased to fire. A small piece of the rail lodged near the trigger assembly and led to this. Fearing a snapped spring I broke it down and found the slide piece. Upon removal I finished the last 3. Stages. Here's what's impressive. 3 barrels, 150,000+ rounds of reloads, and 18 years later it went down and still got up shooting... Time for a new slide or new gun?
