    Is your thumb resting on the slide stop so it pushes it up enough to lock the slide back?

    I would guess that your slide stop is installed incorrectly or your thumb is riding the lever up during shooting.

    That's like telling someone who bought a lottery ticket "You're either going to win, or you're not".

    You have named both possible causes. Unless something extremely strange is going on, it's going to be one of those two...

    Found it the spring is broken, I guess it could be worse.
    Thanks.

    If you change it yourself, you need to wiggle the slide stop while removing and re-installing the trigger pin.(up and down, possibly front to back in relation to the frame) The hole in the slide stop that the trigger pin slides through must rest freely in the center of the groove in the trigger pin. If it's rubbing against either side of the groove in the trigger pin, it could malfunction again.
