Just purchased valkyrie 45acp still in break in period 100 rounds at this point.

Wondering what to do about safety seems to go about 2 mm up after recoil. 

Will not fire till safety is lowered all the way. 

Had a couple people shoot pistol happened to them also.  May not have any

thing to do with it but seems like it is hard release slide when locked back

empty, need to use both thumbs.  No mag in pistol it works fine.  Intermittently

the slide will not lock back when empty have to remove mag and reinstall. Called 

customer service today but they were closed.   thanks in advance for your help.

DW Customer Service is really the best option for you. I’m sure they will do right by you.

ps: Please visit New Members  and tell us a bit more about you and what else you are shooting.

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Called again this morning waiting to hear back. Wondering if this is an isolated incident or one of the normal things?

After reading a few posts seems like some of the items are break in  things and some not. It’s a bummer when you

get new toys that aren’t right. I am sure we will get it sorted out.

Have to send pistol in for service nothing that can be fixed with loctite, it was worth a try. Customer 

service was great so far,  will be without for 2-4 weeks. They seemed very busy bad for me good for them.
