I'll try and answer you this. They all require a certain amount of resistance at the frame in order for the slide to recoil far enough back against the spring to cycle the gun. It takes some resistance by the shooter to cause this to happen. How much is determined by several factors such as recoil impulse force, recoil spring strength, etc., etc.
If there was no resistance at the frame and against the recoil spring, the slide would continue reward until it encountered resistance.
Most guns are designed to NOT fail due to limp wristing against the average shooters strength.
