The reason you have to hold the slide release is because it holds open on the last round. If you are using a loaded magazine instead of a empty magazine you shouldn't have to release the slide

It is that pesky "clip" that is causing the problem. Take it out and discard it. Use a genuine Glock MAGAZINE and it will work much better.

There is no reason to rack the slide with an empty magazine in place. Either no magazine or a full one. Nothing in between.

I didn't know that Glocks used "clips". I thought they used magazines.

OP, your firearm is working as it is suppose to.
Do you have access to an owner's manual? Here is a link to one:
