I have been told by several people more savvy than I on guns, not to do this, so I ease the slide home when its empty.
I was also taught to ride the bolt forward on an empty chamber of an M16.Delija said:And yeah, it does say in the owners manuals (both my SA guns) not to let the slide slam forward on an empty chamber.
And I was always told not to. I don't even remember when I first heard that. Probably in the army.
