I have P220 ST that is exhibiting intermittent slide not locking back on empty mag. Mags work fine on other west german P 220. The last several years has been hard to move the take down lever. of course I didn’t deal with that finally decided to work on the slide not locking back issue. I have been through all 15 pages of the pinned page on that. Today I decided that it was the slide catch spring so found an old parts kit and grabbed the spring. worked the take down lever off and put in new old spring. slide catch lever acts like my other P220 until I put the take down lever. aha now spring is really tight. Even I can see that there is a connection between the two issues. I have a new firing pin block, I think some confusion about whether is stainless frame it is or carbon. I can try a different take down lever in the other block. What else could be going on?

Managed to get the take down lever to finally behave normally. That is a plus, swapped out locking blocks inserts till it finally hit a combination it liked. Empty mags will look back the slide. Will need a range visit to see how acts with live ammo. new spring, thumb not on release and shooting two handed so no limp writing.
