    Slidelock has been a problem for me for sometime now. Other than that it works 100%

    Once I put the Burris fastfire on my 2nd gen G17 It will only intermittently lock the slide back. More often than not it doesn't.

    I have tried the lonewolf SS guide rod with the lightest (11lb) ISMI recoil spring and also tried wolff +10% mag springs by request of JR from this forum. Also have extended slide lock.

    Anyone else experience anything like this.

    The failure is caused by a combination of the additional weight of the Burris sight and weak 115 gr ammo. FYI: You are on the edge of a Failure To Eject (FTE).
    Remove the Burris sight or bump up your loads to 124/147 or..... except it as it is, weak ammo.

    The 147 is the most reliable ammunition offered. You will notice a difference in muzzle rise & recoil. It may turn out to be your favorite load!
