P232 odd moving part
Please forgive the imprecise question, but I am away from my pistol right now and working from an imperfect memory.
Just got a Gunbroker used but virtually NIB P232.
When I stripped it, I noticed there was a piece on the left side of thr frame, which had a small circular spring, which sat on the frame rail. This piece would move off the framerail when pressed, it appears to be attached by the spring.
I compared this to my new-to-me but older P220, which has a similar artifact on the left side, but this piece is immoveable, or at least more firmly attached.
I don't know what these contrivances do...from location, might be the slide lock spring??? But the fact that the P230 moves, but the P220 does not, makes me wonder.
A similar contrivance on my Walther PPKS also does not move.
Any idea what I am looking at, and if this behavior normal?

Looks like the slide catch lever. Not familiar with the 232 so can't speak to whether it should move or not. On the two sigs I have (229/250) there is some movement but they are a different design in that they can be engaged/disengaged using the external control which I don't see on the 232.
