I spoke with DP about it ... its exactly what Truck said (however my ram cap was not loose - however I have no idea if the gun was fired at the shop before I got it) ... the pressure from the ram pressed into the ram cap causes the bearing to flare the edge of its channel a bit -- nothing to worry about at all - they said its perfectly fine.
Shane ... yes I did get it from LVP. No reason to take it to Brett -- there is NOTHING that they can fix that I cant
I had just never heard of anyone else having the problem so I asked DP ... and got my answer. Once I pull the ram out, it will move freely back in/out as long as I dont compress it back in with the ram cap and fire it ... then I have to pull again haha
