Green circle is the dimple. Looks like a crater in the photo but isn't. It slightly squeezes the hole shut in that area and keeps the right lever from rattling. This is my P2000SK and the lever was so loose it would fall out of the pistol during handling when field stripped. No issues with my HK45C.
Red and Blue are reflection or something, there's nothing there.
I may have slightly reformed the right lever to ride closer to the frame as well. Never bend, always reform.
I reformed the lever before I read those messages.
Yea plus you reformed it and didn't bend it lol. I may try it sometime in the future, but might try to pick up a spare lever first in case I mess it up. My small patch of electrical tape is working fine for now.
Did you just put it in a vice and bend...I mean reform it slightly with some pliers or something?

Correct, the lever was not bent, merely reformed.
I recall I reformed the lever with a padded vice and light hammer. The lever did not seem to be 90° to the axis of the pin hole.
My lever was not harmed during the process but you're on your own! Since the right lever is redundant for the 85% of us who are right handed you'll not need a spare unless you bend it too far and the function will function just fine until you replace it.
