    Hello,

    I'm Bobby and brand new to the forum and looking forward to great advice.

    I have heard that the slides on glock pistols are not supposed to be released via the slide lock/release lever. Instead the slide should be pulled back all the way and release forward, chambering the round. Is this accurate? If so, what are the negative consequences of using a slide release? Thanks very much in advance. Take care,

    Bobby

    Glock Inc recommends the "sling shot" method such as you have described however there is nothing wrong with using the slide stop lever.
    FYI: The standard slide stop lever is small. This makes it difficult for most shooters to use (as a slide release). If you have this problem you may consider installing the extended version. See the LWD extended slide stop here http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=7373&TERM=lwd-74
