    I just picked up a Spingfield Champion and it's doing a few weird things.

    First, the slide doesn't stay open after the last shot. This happens with both magazines that came with the gun, a new Pro Mag and a new Springfield mag that the guy at the range loaned me.

    Second, when the slide is locked open with a mag in the gun, and I press the mag release button, the slide slams shut. :eek:

    Also, with slide locked open and no mag in the gun, if I shake the weapon slightly, the slide slams shut.

    To make sure that my technique wasn't causing the problems, the range officer observed me shooting the weapon and saw no bad habits. Then he fired the gun and had the same problems. anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    Say four Hail Mary's, three Our Father's and sacrifice a live chicken under a full moon with a virgin watching.

    You brought up the Voodoo. :D

    You forgot the "At the altar of John Moses Browning" part.

    Send it back to Kimber and tell them to stop placing Springfield's good name on their trash. :evil:

    Sorry about that. I have a Glock 17 that does the same. When I slam the 2nd magazine home, the slide slams shut. As I see it, it saves me a step in having to manually release the thing.

    Sounds like the slide stop needs to be looked at, doesn't it?
