    This was my very first thought when I handled this gun. It was almost impossible to release the slide with the slide lock. No need what so ever to have it recessed that deep. I did like the sights and didn't realize the ports were cut all the way around (internally) at that time. I am anxious to here more follow up on this. I carry a ported 9MM Shield and have never had an issue with flash or gasses.I believe in an actual self defense situation, you would not notice recoil,noise or muzzle flash and POSSIBLY the number of rounds you had fired.

    Your first post revealed the problem. That crappy, underloaded, cheap Remington UMC.
    Shoot good ammo.

    The ammo was definitely the problem. It has fed everything else I’ve put through it since.

    I enjoy having the slide stop/release super low profile. I've been through so many hours of training I don't even think about using it anymore. I don't shoot competition so its sling shot all the way.

    Same. I never release the slide using the slide stop lever. I enjoy having a low profile one. I’m much faster sling shotting it.

    You can NOT slingshot it when it is empty. At the end of a range session or just examining the gun.

    Sure you can. I just push down on the lever with my thumbnail. Pretty easy. Or you could drop the mag. The slide stop is still there, just low profile.

    The slide will already be locked back if you remove it, the slide stays back.

    Without pulling back on the slide you will not be able to release it with your fingernail.
    You can drop the mag, BUT the slide will remain to the rear.
    Please post a video releasing this slide with your fingernail or any other method you can use.

    What happens when you "slingshot" the slide when the magazine is removed.

    I don’t snap the slide closed via slide stop/release on any gun. No reason to.
    I do pull the slide back slightly and push the slide stop lever down on the SAS using my thumbnail. It’s not hard.

    How do you post a video on here?

    You can (or at least I can) slam it home by pushing down on the slide stop lever.
    I’m curious as to why you feel this is an important feature? Just wondering....

    I got sick of the sight system on my SAS, so I traded it in for a standard P365. I shoot that much better.
    The SAS is a cool idea, but it doesn’t work for me.

    I played with one in the store. I would never buy one. My 43 is what I like.

    I always said that I wouldn’t buy a P365... Now I’m on my second one and planning on an XL next. They really are nice guns.
