PPS M2 lockup play

Question about how tight the PPS M2 is when in battery. If you grip the top of the slide and the frame do you detect any movement between the frame and slide? I do have movement on mine and I am wondering if it is why my groups are not very tight. In other words is a sloppy lockup contributing to inaccuracy? My Glocks are very tight with no play.

Tight and no play on my PPS after 5000+ rounds.

From what I understand, the tightness of the lockup between the slide and barrel has the greatest effect on accuracy, not the lockup between the slide and frame.

My slide is tight. Check to see if you have the recoil assembly set correctly. Some owners are seating it too deep and then experiencing inaccuracy. We had a thread on that recently with photos. I will see if I can find it and link to it.

This is the link to the thread I mentioned above.

There is a ledge but if you donít set it in the valley it may not be centered when you re-install the slide in the frame.

The manual confirms in the assembly notch.

What the manual does not tell you is the factory recoil rod was a hair too short and will shift when reassembling the slide to frame. I replaced mine with a BT assembly which has a longer rod.

So there is a known defect?

It's not agreed to by Walther and there are owners who continue to use the factory assembly. If you search for threads on the subject you will find that a number of owners purchased after market assemblies just as I did.

My RSA is 64 mm long. Can someone tell me what constitutes a RSA that is too short? Letís use data to continue the discussion.
