Thanks to the Official Internals (thread and cheesypizza001 for the pic.)
As you can see on the left side of the photo, the dart tooth goes in way further than 0.5mm. For reference, a dime is 1mm thick, so it's barely in there at all. I don't have my Recon handy (or even intact), but I think the dart tooth extended at least a quarter-inch into the barrel.
Under the dart tooth is the spring that keeps it in place. Is that spring missing?
Lastly, the dart tooth is up only when the slide is back. When the slide and bolt are in firing position, the dart tooth is supposed to be retracted. I'm guessing you are looking down the barrel with the slide back. If you have the slide fully forward, then 0.5mm may be normal.
Read my entire post. No seriously, read it. Its a LONGSHOT not a recon and I said the dart tooth goes in about 0.5 mm when its not cocked, the gun wouldn't work practically if it was always 0.5 mm. The dart tooth other then that is fully working and so are the internals I think I might have had this problem before a few times but I'm not sure so it might be the darts, the innards seem to be in perfect condition.
Edit: Which locks are neccessary? I think the problem is with my darts or one of the locks. Also is it possible the spring is to powerful (the spring in magazine) because when I load one dart it goes the previous range but when i fully load it (12 darts) it goes 20 feet but the range slowly gets higher as I fire more, also my darts seem to be shredding more.
