I had a really interesting situation yesterday, the first time out with my new fullsize 40. I did the required clean and lube and also a trigger job before the trip. I shot about 75 rnds with zero issues, both WWB and my own reloads. Then I let my buddy shoot the weapon and two or three time per 10 rnd magazine he experienced the slide lock back. I moved to his left side so I could watch his grip and he was nowhere near hitting the slide lock/release. I also checked to see if he was pushing up on the mag and he was not. I gave him a different magazine and he had the same problem. I shot another mag and no problem. I couldn't figure what might be causing the problem. I told him to grip the gun harder and "shoot it like you mean it". After he started gripping the gun harder he had no more problems. :?:



I shot an IDPA match with the gun today and it functioned perfectly.



The round count is up to about 300 now and with me shooting it, it has been flawless. I am perplexed by what happen with my buddy. I wish I could figure out how the slide could lock back with rounds in the magazine without hitting the slide lock....

During recoil he was probably hitting or bumming the slide release causing it to ride up and lock the slide back.

LC, don't you get an exemption on the stupid 10-round mag rule?

Don't forget the slide lock can be operated from either side. If the pistol is bouncing around something unexpected can happen.



:twisted:
