    My thumbs don't ride slide on any semi-auto pistol so I've never had this problem. Simple cure FredBart, just shoot HKs :-)

    Have you inspected the plastic follower to see if it’s been worn or damaged in the corner where it pushes the slide lock?

Perhaps if one only shoots H&K pistols the lowered thumb becomes second nature. 1911's, Glocks and S&W don't seem to be sensitive to thumb position.

    I feel the exact same way. Never had this issue with my M&P. I guess my hands just sit on the gun in a way that hits the slide release.

    Yes all seems to be fine. I will probably change them out a long with the mag release anyway.

    I have the same issue, but I also have the issue when I shoot Glocks. I tried adjusting my grip, but I don't feel like I shoot as well and it doesn't reliably solve the issue with me. I just treat it like an MP5 and change mags when I get a click.

    Sucks that I have to change my grip. Other than that it’s a phenomenal pistol.

    I've never had that issue with my VP40 either. My thoughts are:

    1. Have another experienced shooter shoot the pistol to see if the problem is replicated; However, if the problem surfaces with the other shooter(s), then I'd...

    2. Contact HK Customer Service, describe the issue, and have them examine the pistol; make sure you send it will all of your magazines.

    Best, Jon

    PlusAD- it's not your pistol. It's your mag extensions. You posted previously that applying pressure against the base of the extensions would allow the slide to lock back reliably.
    There was a member who posted the same problem a while back.
    My own experience using an extension, is that the factory mag springs are just a tad bit too short to provide positive, reliable lockback, in aftermarket baseplate s that alter the length. IE- Some aftermarket extensions.
    Use factory mags for your defense rig.

Maybe a design flaw in the actual mag extension where the spring sits to low and can’t generate enough tension?
    What ext/spring are these (to notify the forum)?
    From my reads, the top performing is the Solum Tool ext/spring. But diminishing returns when you price it out, you might as well get the HK 20rd (and have another mag).
    The mag base is not the culprit (the spring is in compression), your testing eliminates it.

    The magazine extension was from HK Parts but if the people who I’ve reached out to who have the same mag extension has not had a issue at all. They’ve even sent me a replacement and it worked for a bit but eventually started happening again.
