    With rounds still in the mag...
    Could it be a bad SlideStop lever?

    Could be several things.
    Does it happen every now and then when you are shooting? Odds are your thumb is creeping up and engaging it under recoil. Modify your grip and keep practicing.
    Does it happen on every shot? You installed it incorrectly, reinstall.

    It was happening regularly ONLY with the one mag. I replaced the mag and all is now good.

    Thanks!

    I have no idea how a loaded magazine could lock the slide back? I also cant argue with progress. If changing mags fixed the issue then I am all for it!
