    My 17 fails to lock on the last shot of the mag. It will lock in place if empty but when shooting the last round it fails to lock in the back position. I've tried 3 different mags...

    Be mindfull of your thumbs, many a problem has been caused by magic thumb. :)

    thanks... I just switched to shooting left-handed.. I'll try both ways to see if it is the thumb. I do have an extended slide release...

    Could be weak magazine spring, worn slide stop lever notch,needs lub, deformed mag., "thumb printing". I can tell you 13 things that will cause this, but without seeing the gun or you shoot, it's just a guess.

    Today I shot it and it would release the magazine if I had 6 or more bullets in the mag. Since I was already having problems with the slide failing to lock after the last shot, I found a simple fix... I carried it back to the dealer. gave it back and $100.00 and left there with a new one!
