Glock 22C fires one round then slide locks back

1152 18
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.

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.
