About your bent screw, it's easily straightened by just leaving it in the slide where the threads are protected and the screw is held tight. Then just tap it the way you want to with a piece of wood.
As for your slide. It appears to me that your screw might be worn at the tip and so it doesn't tighten down far enough to tighten against the side of the slide.
I've seen most 1903's with the tightening knob bent, but that never resulted in such an ill fitting slide.
