    Did you try a few different magazines?

    This problem has been addrressed in other threads concerning all different brands and models of 1911's.

    Besides the magazine being the potential cause, it may also be the ammunition. The bullet may be making contact with the slide stop, and pushing the stop up as the cartridge moves out of the magazine.

    1911Tuner has written several posts about this problem. You might try searching through those.

    It could also very well be your technique. Make double sure that the tip of the thumb on your support hand isn't touching, riding, or pressing on the slide lock in any way.

    Had one with same problem. It was me. My grip was too limp. Try holding on just a little tighter. Many times guns with tight tolerances have the same problem
