I'm having a problem with my slide release not coming down far enough to release the slide when the gun is locked back with no mag in and you retract the slide the last 1/16' or so manually.
Any ideas on a fix without trying a different slide release?
By the way this gun (Baer Concept 7) is not being used with a shock buffer as I know that can sometimes cause this paculiarity.

Greetings from a former El Reno and Woodward native.
There's a ledge cut into the slide that pushes the slide stop down to unlock as the slide moves back and if that cut is out of dimension, or the slide stop is, that's your problem. And you're right about that shock buff causing the same problem.

Thanks for the tip Bob. I got bored last night and decided to "tweak" Les Baer's best effort and replaced the slide stop and sure enough it looked like somebody got dremel happy on the release angle. Works great now!!
