What is wrong with your slide? If it is cracked you need to call Ft Smith and request that they fix it. Your pistol has a lifetime warranty. M1911
Call again Monday....don't e-mail. Edit: I see from the other thread you have some cracks in the slide. Yep, you need a new one from Walther. Don't fire the pistol with a cracked slide. On the P22 the slide can fly off the rear of the pistol and give you a fat lip.
