This story has a interesting ending, for those of you with 36's, It will be boring to the ones that don't. On Jan 2, I poster that my model 36 slide would stay open prematurally after I installed a Glockmeister GMSSL 36 Extended Slide Stop Lever. I emailed them about this problem and the emailed me back and said to send the lever in and they would send me the correct lever back at no charge. Did all this,,installed new lever from Glockmeister, and on very first mag. I had the same problem. And each mag. after that. This is my carry gun, so I decided to order a new 36 and just leave it stock. My friend with a FFL asked to see my old gun along with a .45 ACP round. He removed the slide, inserted the magazine with 1 round in it, and my 12 year old grandson could have figured out this problem. The bullet just barley touched the ext slide stop lever, kicking it up after every 2nd or 3rd shot. My friend, who is also a Fireman, took the gun home on his days off and filed the very tip of the lever off. I took gun to range, ran 6 mags through it and it did not malfunction one time. Now I'm very happy with my Model 36 again. If You Don't Miss You Win!!!!!!
