    Does anyone know if the late model Remington 572 .22 pump is suppose to lock the slide when pulled to the front *if the trigger is held back*? It works correctly in every other way. But it seems to me that this should lock any time that it is pulled forward, if the manual release is not held.

    If this is confusing, here is what happens. Pull the trigger, gun fires and slide lock releases. If trigger is held back at this point, the slide can be pulled forward but not lock. Once the trigger is released, it will lock.

    If left in this state, it seems that it would be easy to shoot, work the slide briskly then possibly pull back slightly disengaging the firing mechanism. The 870 locks forward, but the disconnector in it operates slightly differently.

    Any help is appreciated.
