Built a polymer 80 pf940v2. I haven't fired it yet, and wanted to get some advice before I do. The metal on my slide where the barrel meets the ejection port is a little warped and formed a lip. It's it safe to shoot? If not, should I get a new slide or can I just sand it down?

It's fine if you get good lockup, but it wouldn't hurt it if you smoothed it down. I wouldn't go overboard on it, though.

ETA: This should be posted in Gunsmithing since this isn't actually a Glock. For future reference.

Got it thanks I appreciate the help and I'll keep that in mind for future posts

does it hand cycle smoothly? If so and it locks up tight its fine, it'll wear itself in anyway.
Yes and no. When I chamber the first round of a magazine it's not so smooth and sometimes it doesn't go fully into battery. When this happens I have to manually lock the slide into place. After the first round the issue seems to go away. Only happens with the first round of every magazine.

I tried to smooth it down and oiled it, and it seemed to get a little better but I have to oil it every other day to keep it working smoothly. I found some CPL at my job that was unclaimed so I'm going to try using that tonight.
