    Default Re: Slide issues with my Shadow

    My shadow routinely lets the slide go when I slam a mag in. (That's with fingers off the slide release.) Problem is that it does not consistently pick up a cartridge on the way past. So it's actually a feature that I'd like to disable by default.

    Nope. I've checked - mine disengages from the slamming force as the mag is seated.

    That’s what I meant. The force exerted seating the mag is disengaging the slide stop

    Ah, I thought you meant that the actual slide stop gets bumped with your hand when you insert the mag :D

    When a feature doesn't work like it should, it's a bug.

    IMO it's a bad habit to learn to slam the mag home in order to release the slide.
    I've witness this fail on a number of occasions during IDPA matches.
