    It could be many things. I suggest you shoot a few hundred rounds through it and see if the springs loosen up a bit. If its a new weapon, tight springs can overcome the force of the mag release catch and allow it to slam forward back into battery. It's just hard to tell without handling or inspecting the weapon. Sorry I can't be any more help than that. Good Luck!

    There are a lot of issues with this kind of problem:
    Here are the first six questions before getting into the next twelve.

    1. Has this problem happen before?
    2. Has the gun been cleaned since the last time it was shot?
    3. Has the gun been properly lubricated?
    4. Do you use grease on the slide?
    5. How many rounds were shot before problem occured?
    6. What type of ammunition were you using?
