    Welcom and good morning Kiwi.... You might drop this down to the Gunsmithing/Repair Forum..
    http://www.northwestfirearms.com/gunsmithing-repairs/


    Are you on the north or south island. I worked out of Christchurch for many years and loved the south island. The north is good also but one has preferances I guess? I still have friends down there and recieve the most current on the earthquake damage and changes made. Terrible news about the cathedral in Chch.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    If you have taken the gun apart(detail stripped) and didn't get the spring for the catch slide in right it can cause lock back with recoil, check to make sure the spring is in right and functioning correctly.
    Spring 4.13
    Slide catch is 4.12
