I would like to reflect my illustration accross a vertical axis but I am having trouble with the paths being slightly off when the reflection is made?

 

( I also had this issuew when making a copy but I decide to delete the copy, restart illustrator, and the problem seemed to go away.)

 

Here is the original:

Here's my reflected copy:

These are the imperfections that don't carry over identically when the original piece is mirrored:

I am not entirely sure as to why this problem happens.

For this kind of artwork you don't need snap to pixel.

What's the reason that this is happening?

If it is due to Snap to Pixel, it's because the anchor points are snapping to the pixel grid when you create the copy.

If it's not, could you share the file to investigate?
