    When I've had that problem the cause has been the disassembly button has too much spring tension. You have to press the button in as you seat the rear of the slide. If you push the button in with the slide off, you'll see how it can prevent the slide from seating.

    Also, the recoil spring is directional, even though it's hard to see the difference. Putting the recoil spring in backwards, can make it difficult to reassemble.

    Really? I did not know this.

    One of my M13s that was well used when I bought it gave me fits at first getting the slide back on because the parts were no longer held very tightly by the retaining pins. The slightest bit of slop can send a bar or pin out of alignment during reassembly and the slide would get stuck. Now I'm used to it and don't have a problem but it took some careful observation to discover what was happening.

    It also appears your left grip panel is not installed correctly. It looks like it is tilted forward (rotated counterclockwise).

    Thanks for the heads up. I hadn't noticed it.
    If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
    "I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

    The Wolff recoil springs for the P7 are definitely directional. I'm not sure if the HK factory springs are.

    Your left grip is sticking out. This is due to the pin which is mounted horizontally across the receiver (holds slide stop on left and disconnector on right) sticking out on the left side. Push is back to the right, re-centering it.
