Haven’t had it happen on a mod or build, but seen is on a few used knives over the years. I check the fit before peening. I just push the main blade toward the small blade. Mostly to check for any alignment issues, but also contact with the liner and spacer.
One possible fix if you don’t want to take it apart is to remove a tiny bit of material on the round end of the tang where it goes flat on the blade side. Where the blade makes contact with the backspring when closed. Just not the choil side.
Good luck with the fix.
nice one, I think I'll give that a go as don't want to take it apart again at this stage if possible ;0)
