It sounds like the ability to chamber a round by hand racking the slide has been lost. Thus, chambering requires locking the slide open, inserting a loaded mag and releasing the slide lock. Correct?
No, that is not what I am saying. 1. the gun has to be cocked.
2.You can rack the slide back with or without a magazine, with or without a round. When the slide is pulled all the way back let it go and everthing works as it should.
3. If you ease the slide forward with your hand is when it may not work.
I hope that explains it. BTW it is not a slider lock.
