The good news is it does not hurt a thing. If you pull the trigger the sldie will move into battery and the trigger will not have reset, let off the trigger and it will reset and fire.

A gentle push will put mine back in battery. Dropping the mag will also put it back into battery. I experimented by removing one round at time from the mag. The slide refused to return to battery as long as a single round was in the mag. With no rounds in the mag, the slide would not lock back.

I do not profess to know why it locks back but it sure looks like the pressure from the rounds in the mag is a contributing factor.

I believe EB is asking know many rounds have been fired through the gun, not what capacity you load it to...

I have three shields. One has 500, 300, 100 approx. They are exactly the same mechanically reactive. All are 9mm.

I think what he is saying is that all 3 do the same.

Well, I have one, and it doesn't do that. It has a "hitch" when slowly hand-cycled, but it always goes fully into battery.

Round count is @200 rounds now, but the slide always went into battery, even before the first round went down range.

It's still box-stock, too.

If you bump the slide on any one of them is an exact duplicate of a hang-up. It is about the same distance as the striker resetting on the sear.

Fred Jackson at Berryville Pawn has two new ones, they both do the same thing. It is a common thing with every shield I have owned or handled.

Do not misunderstand what I am stating please. The firearm works fine. The problem is that; if the muzzle is bumped or rubbed against something like it happened in my fanny pack, draw the gun and the slide is out of battery. You have to bump it home or pull the trigger and hope it goes into battery and reset the trigger to fire the shot.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AT THIS, thank you again,

Just out for a walk and one gun I had on was made in 2015. I bump the slide back and pull the trigger and nothing happens. Slide just sits there hung back. Pulled the other one out of the fanny pack and it moves forward when trigger is pulled. Take the mag out they will both move forward. pull the mag when either are hung it will move forward. I THINK THE pick up rail acts as a sear for the slide and I cannot tell if the actual sear grabs at the striker sometimes and hangs?

OK; I think I finally "get" what you're saying.

If your slide gets knocked to the rear a little; it hangs up, and you to have to push it back forward into battery before (Thank God) it'll fire.

That sucks (that it hangs up, not that it won't fire out of battery).

They will both almost fire out of battery because I have two from that video session that have 6 o, clock hits on the primers. Will take pics later. NO my friends I am not getting rid of my shields. I have three and plan on two more. We are gonna get with Smith and figure this out. No more Glocks at my house, only AMERICAN MADE.

OK so I am finding out that any Smith sanctioned site will say it is not an issue so for now I will just forget it because until someone gets a round blown in their face a pile of lawyers to prove it,,lol nobody will face the issue. thanks
