Just got a used UPS and love it except for my slide will lock open before mag is empty. I have 3 mags and it does it with all 3. I am concirned it is because I am left handed and my grip causes upward pressure on the slice lock. Anyone ever had this problem? or could it be week recoil springs. Used gun does not appear to have more than 2000 rounds down the pipe. Thanks

It's most likely your grip as you theorized, a weak recoil spring wouldnt cause this.

I will try right hand shooting next time at the range, if no problem then it must be grip. but I have Kimbers, glocks,sigs, colts, rugers, czs and never had the proble but this is the only gun with such a long slide release. Do you think a spring change could reduce the number of occurances?

There is the spring that hold the slide release down, though I've never heard of one wearing out. I'm right handed and shoot thumbs forward under the lever but I don't push up.
