Slide Locks Back Intermittently

Post by dnchrist » 04 Jan 2022, 23:37

When semi-auto firing with a loaded magazine, my slide locks back and I have to hit the slide release to continue. I thought at first I was bumping the slide release when firing, but this is not the case. It does not lock back every time - it is intermittent.

Have you or anyone else dis assembled the lower?

Ether you, someone else, or the factory did not assemble the lower correctly.

Odds are this is your issue.
