I find the tightness of this affects my slide cycle.
I just tightn it to the point where it stops gently and then play around( i use blue thread lock)
The BBU is in really tight. It was an ILLusion lightweight blow back unit, but its modeled after the TM 1911 one and the 1911 one works fine... at least I've heard anyway.

It is passing the rails. Unless a nanometre makes a difference in the way the slide moves.
