    My dad just purchased a used sr40c and after each round fired it ejects the shell but the slide will lock in the back position. We've tried 3 different magazines as my buddy is shooting with us and has the same firearm. So we tried his magazines and keep having the same issue. Any ideas or has anyone had this issue?

    A gunsmith should be able to sort this out. It doesn't sound like a big problem. But what do I know?

    Does the slide lock back when you rack it with no magazine in the pistol?

    I figured out the issue. The spring for the slide lock level is off the lever. I popped it back on with a small flat head screw driver but after a few rounds it pops back off.

    Good deal Duck4Glocks. Glad to hear it was something so minor.
