I recently got a Glock 21 gen 3 in excellent condition, but on every shot the slide locks back like the mag is empty. If you push the mag release it will fire again. Have tried the original factory mags and aftermarket, still same result. Any ideas would be appreciated.

:rolleyes: Perhaps nobody has addressed this problem because the correct answer to this rather amateurish question is so repetitive, boring, and simple! OK, here, I'll take 30 more seconds to answer it:

BECAUSE THE SLIDE STOP (which is, nowadays, frequently referred to as a 'slide release') SPRING IS EITHER BROKEN, OR INSTALLED INCORRECTLY.

If the slide stop spring arm is NOT broken then it should be installed UNDERNEATH THE #1 LOCKING BLOCK PIN rather than incorrectly installed on top of it.

Well, I feel silly. Thanks for the help.
