I recently bought a 3rd gen HS2K used. I took it to the range for the first time yesterday and it is a fine shooting pistol. I have one small problem...the slide will not stay locked back after the final spent case is ejected. I used both HS mags and a brand new Hi-cap mag. 90% of the time, the slide would NOT remain open. I had three other guys give it a try and it stayed open with 2 out of 3 of them. They were all long time shooters. I have no other problems such as this with any of my other firearms so I don't think it is a problem with my shooting form. Although, I guess it could be.

I have always heard that this type of problem was a mag issue, but could it possibly be something with the slide catch? The slide WILL remain open on an empty mag while pulling the slide back manually at the house (without ammo in mag!!!!).

Anyone have any thoughts? Is this problem easily corrected by any competent gunsmith?
