Unlike three 4" 2.0s and one 4.25" 2.0 in the safe, two 5" 2.0s have such stiff slide stops that I can't release the slide from lock using the slide stop. Spare me the advice to slingshot the slide closed. Years of shooting 1911s using the slide stop to release the slide is ingrained into habit. I do not wish to change the practice for two 2.0s. Returning one to S&W to address the problem has NOT resulted in any improvement. Wasted time and money. I ask for some advice from those who conquered this problem because I like the 5" 2.0 but they can't remain in the holster as they are..
