I fired my glock 22c today for the first time. It would fire one round and then the slide would lock back. I could release the slide and then it would load another round, fire and then lock back again. I tried two magazines (1 15rd, 1 10rd) using federal FMJ factory ammo. Same thing with both magazines. Any thoughts on that is going on?

If you have had the slide stop lever out, then it is incorrectly reinstalled.

Page 39 of your owner's manual.

9. SLIDE STOP LEVER TEST. Pull upward on the slide stop lever and release. The lever should snap down sharply into the frame. If the lever is sluggish, or remains in the upward position, refer the pistol to GLOCK, Inc. or a GLOCK-certified Armorer.

It seems a little sloppy compared to my g35 but there is some spring tension.

Two weeks ago I was SO for an IDPA stage and a shooter had the same symptom. Every round slide locked back. After 5 rounds he stopped. Unload and show clear. He left took it apart and stated the slide stop was installed incorrectly and it was fine the rest of the day. My money is on that.

a picture of the lever if this helps

I don't see the spring at the top of the slide stop lever. Can you take the same picture but with the grip of the pistol pulled more to you? Like you are looking toward the muzzle of the pistol but keep the slide stop lever in the shot.
