I have an I have a Belgian made FN Browning hi-power that I reblued. I just put everything back in place and as I go to connect a slide to the frame it hangs up 6.6 mm from battery. I have checked the recoil spring, the sear, the ejector, the hand for the trigger as well as the trigger positioning itself. It is Well oiled but not over greased and I cannot see any obvious spots Where Metal is rubbing Am I missing something? Because I cannot see anything that is holding it up from returning to where it's supposed to be so I can put the slide lock/disassembly lever back in place. Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you.

the flash distorts the blueing color fyi

Go with the trouble shooting method.......

Install JUST the slide on the frame and check for free and full travel.
Then install just the barrel in the slide and test again, then the recoil spring and guide.

This should point out which part is causing the problem.
If you can't get the bare slide on, start looking for things in the slide and frame for interference.

After going through everything twice it dawned on me that the extractor that I was given when I bought the gun was slightly different than the extractor that I took out and replaced so I went and switched it back and it works perfect now. Thank you for your response
