Slide failure to lock when empty?
Posted 22 June 2012 - 01:25 PM
If I take the slide off I can see that on occasion the slide catch lever is simply not pushed up by the magazine in order for it to catch. This occurs fairly regularly after emptying a magazine. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

The slide catch, rather then being pushed up by the follower tab, is simply being pushed out to the side instead. There is no apparent wear on the parts other then a bit of the finish rubbed off. It would seem that the slide catch tab that interfaces with the follower is simply not long enough.
Im going to try ordering a new slide catch lever and see if that solves the problem. I could have just gotten a lemon, I suppose.
