it's not a matter of belief. This has been scientifically tested and proven many times over. There are dozens of sources you can easily search. But nevertheless have a good day gentlemen.You can believe what you want to, it's a free country.locking back the slide won't do anything even if it was locked back for 20 yrs. Compressing a spring does not cause a spring to loosen. Only cycling a spring will do that. That's why you can leave magazines fully loaded for years (rust free) and they will function just fine. Compression causing a spring to lose its "spring" is a myth.
But in my experience, my new guns rack the slides easier (and some of them have been pretty damned stiff) after a couple of nights of being locked open, rinse and repeat, before their round counts got into the break-in periods.
It is a matter of the design of the spring, and just how much compression we are talking about.it's not a matter of belief. This has been scientifically tested and proven many times over. There are dozens of sources you can easily search. But nevertheless have a good day gentlemen.
Seems like our break-in experience was similar. The Q5 slide spring seems a little on the stiff side which I guess makes sense for a speed gun that looks to be targeted toward the competition market. No jams on the first 1k rounds post break-in. So far so good on next 1k rounds...My q5 had 5 or so stove pipes in the first few hundred rounds with freedom remanufactured ammo and after that around 10k now and not one more. Run it some more should be fine. I've run everything through it not just good stuff. Make sure to disassemble and clean the striker assembly every 2k or so, you might get a ftf otherwise
