    So I just bought this new WE TT33 from Evike and when I got it in the mail there was a problem. every so often when I fired the pistol, the slide wouldn't be able to go all the way back. It's a locked breach design and the barrel is supposed to drop a few mm's. But on the occasional shot that causes the slide to get stuck, I noticed the barrel wasn't dropping. The barrel was dragging along the top of the slide because of it causing the slide to get stuck. So I'm wondering if theres anyway to fix this problem? I don't want to have to return this pistol because I really do love this gun and the hassle would be tremendous. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If it's so new, it might still be under warranty. Why not contact Evike and request a RMA?

    I just didn't want to go through the stressful proccess, so I was wondering if there was a solution that I could try at home.

    Have you tried oiling it?

    My Sig works in a similar manner if I understand correctly. It had a rough cycle at first, until wearing in. I also sanded the paint off the barrel assembly (orange tip, etc. etc.).
    I would say simply try lubing it up, see if the problem continues. If not, problem solved, maintenance is a must.
    If not, you may have to sand the rear of the barrel assembly SLIGHTLY.
    Try lube first.
