    when i first got it (used) it had a couple cheap mags
    the slide wouldnt lock back on any of the empty mags
    so i got some wilson combat's and that fixed that
    or so i thought
    now today i went to the range and shot it
    it did lock back on the empty but every time i drop the empty it released the slide
    i can manually engage the slide stop and it works but it does seem like it takes very little to disengage it
    should i replace the slide release lever??
    thanks

    Since you already changed out mags I would change the slide stop next to see if that corrects it. Fairly easy and cheap fix to try.

    Use a Wilson Combat Bullet Proof.
    Excellent quality and very much similar to the original stop.
