    It is a sign that you really don't want an extended slide release.

  6. If you have a thumbs forward grip, it's possible that you'll keep the slide release from coming up as the mag goes empty. I had one for a while, and I couldn't figure out why my slide wasn't locking back most of the time. I eventually realized that I was interfering with the slide release with my thumb. I went back to the standard one, and no more problems.

    That was gen 2.5. It had the rails and grip change but 2 pins.
    The 3 pins is what marked the beginning of the 3rd gen.

    I have the same problem. I shoot with my thumbs forward with a very high grip. The extended release was too much...

    which is how you SHOULD have your grip. That's why I've never liked them
