I know the only time this can happen is on a second strike so it's not a big deal, but it's really something.
Normal. Most LEM configurations use a heavier than normal mainspring. When you rack the slide the spring is under tension so that the LEM trigger pull is only moving a portion of the spring weight.
If you have a dud and attempt second strike, the slide did not cycle, your previous trigger pull released all tension on the spring so your attempt to second strike will be against the full force of the mainspring. Bonus is that the heavier mainspring usually results in very strong primer strikes so hard primers shouldn't be an issue. Just an outright dud.
