    M&P 380 EZ slide release

    I bought a 380EZ for my wife and it's the first semi-auto that she can easily rack. However she can't manipulate the slide release after the magazine is emptied. I have no difficulty with it but it does require more effort than it should. Has anybody experienced this? Does anybody know if their is a fix? It seems to me if the slide release had a little more side ways projection of the metal, it would release easier. Any ideas?

    The slide should lock back when the magazine is empty. In order to get the slide forward I ALWAYS slingshot it - I never try to do it using the SLIDE LOCK lever.

    Thanks. I never thought of that.

    The easiest fix is to buy her a revolver so she won’t have to manipulate a slide or slide release.

    She has a .38 Special revolver but wants semi-auto pistol.
