You understand correctly. Without a mag, when I would use the decocker, the bushing would literally unseat fro the "notch" inside the receiver so it would move with the lever instead os staying seated. I would then have to manually reset the decocker. When a mag is inserted, there is sufficient pressure to keep the bushing in place to not cause the problem.
It started happening after a fairly muddy training and the 229 was caked with mud and sand. Had to fire the 229 and had a malfunction immediately. After cleaning is when the problem started.
Glad that solved the problem for you! I hadn't heard of your problem (if I understand it correctly). I've seen slight variation in the length of decock bearing shaft as well as in the frame wall at that point, but not so much that it would allow the inside "plate" to shift (is that correct?). Anyway, good shooting!
