Kahr CM45 Slide Release

I have been looking at one of these in a store. With the slide locked back, I couldn't push the release, to release it, with one hand (thumb). Had to grasp the slide and pull back with the other hand to be able to press the release. Is this common or is it a fluke? If I buy it, is there a cure for this?

Did it have an empty mag in it??

If so, you were fighting the slide release, plus the magazine spring trying to keep it open.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
Or all your primers in a glass jar!

Yeah, if the empty mag was in it your thumb will bleed before you'll get it to release.
