    Went to the range and my gun wasn't consistently locking the slide back once it discharged the last round. The strange thing is it seemed to only do this when I was shooting it, not when my brothers shot it. Gun is not very used at all and was well cleaned. Any ideas?

    What's your hold on the pistol look like?

    any chance you are engaging the slide release with your grip?

    hmm - hadn't really thought about that, I'll have to look more closely at my grip and see

    on second thought that would require me to be pulling down on the slide release which would seem impossible with my grip

    sometimes even the slightest pressure can cause it to not lock

    This. My USPf is one of the only guns this happens to me on. Seems like if my thumb is even barely touching the slide lock, even on the side, this happens.
     
  14. This is my vote. Simple test... put 1 round in the mag and shoot it, making sure not to have your thumb against the slide release.

    small point, this is why labeled magazines are good. if only one magazine malfunctions then you know its the mag, if they all do it then you know its you.

    just shoot it left handed and see if the problem still occurs

    eta: not familiar w/ most HKs so if it has an ambi slide lock this might not help :o
