    On another sight a question was asked about the slide releasing on its own whem the Mag is installed. Is this normal? I have never had this problem myself but some answers given is that this is common. If this has been discussed before sorry for asking THANKS

    when i put a mag in with any kind of force my slide always releases. This is on a stock g19. In fact when I want to put in a mag without the slide releasing I always put my thumb on the slide stop to insure it won't release.

    Yup, it's been discussed here LOTS of times....and I wouldn't call it normal, but it's not uncommon either.....it depends a lot on how hard the mag is slammed into the gun too.

    I love this at the range. Slam her home and start shooting. A poor habit at best to be learning though.

    :agree:

    You full well know that if you ever *really* need the slide to close.....it won't.

    Oh, I know. I just use it kinda like a timer. Slide clicks and I'm not in the 100% ready position.

    My G19 does close when slamming a mag home but my G26 does not. Happy both ways.

    MY 19 does it every once in a while, but I don't normally "Slam" the mag home. When I do I tend to pinch my hand!
