I was trying to install the barrel back on my 41 today and found that the locking cam is stuck in the closed position. When I pull down on the trigger guard the cam doesn't move at all. Not sure if it jumped out of position or what. I have another 41 and when I compare the force required to pull down the latch it seems to move too easily, as if the trigger guard is no connected to anything.

Figured I ask here and perhaps someone else has had this problem.

The serial number is TAM 3028. I think its from the late 80s but that just what some one told me. It has the older style lettering compared to my newer 41. also the safety has the notch in the slide.
