Hi! Kevin.....bit hard to know !....assuming ammo is correct dimensionally & of good power., & extractor & ejector are in order & chamber is good & slide is free & full sliding......then my first guess would be sticky firing pin not retracting properly thus stymying ejector action.......any stickier & you might get full auto ?......are you puncturing primers ?.. if gas back escape is part of the picture , bullet may not leave barrel . I suggest you do full strip , incl firing pin , clean & remove any burrs ..... worthwhile to run some dummies by hand & see how they behave..........jimbanjo

It is a numbered ring surrounding the crystal [ glass ] which should be rotatable to bring the numbers to where you need them for various purposes....it has a spring loaded detent [ click! ] for each position....but , be warned,......some are fake ,decorative only, & dont work........jimbanjo

What have you been shooting ???? My advice is strip it & examine closely for other damage & take good close up pics from all angles & contact the maker....this is a serious problem not to be entrusted to your average local gunsmith............jimbanjo

I did it the long and slow way! I did search again and found this answer after the long haul!

When you pull out the stem, there are two clicks. Do it gently and you will notice when the first click is engaged (by sound or feeling with your fingers). The first click position is exactly for the date adjustment.
For me the click was very faint! Good luck! Now I have the watch with the three interchangeable bands!

The tip of the barrel. The muzzle. That doesn't make very good sense, since the barrel is one piece, surrounded by the slide, which is also one piece. Is it possible that you need the front sight?

You will very probably need to take it to a local gunsmith for repairs.

Common problem with these clips. I just bought a new SD40 yesterday and both clips rattle. Nothing you can really do. I read on a forum where a guy swapped the lower place and spring from a glock 23 clip and it fixed it.

Look at the back of the movement, as you pull out the knob ( the crown) you should see either to the left of the crown (in the movement) or one the outside of the movement (a little lower) you should see a piece of metal that moves every time you pull in and out. It also should have a little dimple on it ( it is called the detent). Take a pin(or something that small) and as you pull out the crown GENTLY push in on it, this should release the stem and crown. Then you should be able to take out the movement and fix the hands. When you are done GENTLY push the stem and crown back into the movement. If you find you have any problems PLEASE let me know, I will be glad to go over it with you as you do it. Good Luck!!!
