    While shooting my new 36 I had an issue of the slide prematurely locking back. My best guess would be I am riding the slide release lever but with the thin profile I would think that would be hard to do.

    Is there anything else that would cause the slide to do that or do you have any suggestions on how to improve my grip or modify the slide release to eliminate the problem.

    As for my grip I tend to keep my right thumb fairly high, as though holding a 1911 above the safty. I would think if anything I would be pushing down on the slide release. Dont know?

    Thumbs down or straight.
    They have to stay away from lever.
    This is not a 1911.

    I use my off-hand thumb on top of my strong hand thumb to keep it away from the lever.

    Make sure the slide stop lever spring is under the locking block pin as shown in this picture, but most likely someone's thumb is pushing the slide stop up during recoil.....
