I have a Socom Gear 1911 MEU Limited Edition and it came with a threaded tip along with a silencer. However I've always had trouble with the silencer, when I look at pictures or videos of it, the silencer is always aligned so the markings are facing the right side and they are right side up.
However, when I put my silencer on, it only tightens to the point where the writing is on the left side and slightly upwards from where it should be.
Also, I have an issue where it doesn't seem to tighten well, if I get the silencer all the way, it becomes slightly tight however any more force to tighten it, the threaded tip itself will start to unscrew from the gun itself and vice versa.
Is this normal? What issue could this be and how can I fix it? The threads on all places look fine and not damaged.
