    Yes, thanks Ram Rod that is correct. I understand about the other spring issue but I didn't touch that part of the gun. Just the rear pin because basically the Crimson Trace grip needed a longer pin to hold it in place.

    I would say check your grip and make sure on the recoil you aren't bumping the slide stop up.oops didn't see the post about you stripping it

    Actually I believe that GLOCK states in the manual to leave that copper paste lube on for the initial firings. Just FYI.

    I think you need to try to push up on the slide lock up and
    test it for spring tension
    if it does not have any, the spring is louse or broken.

    when you fired the gun the lock can bounce up and
    as you run out of ammo the gun gets lighter and lighter
    and it bounces more and more untill it locks by its self.

    test it first by hand with the gun unloaded and no
    mag in the gun (the mag will push up on it if you don,t
    remove it first)

    For the record, I took a brand new G26 to the range without pre-cleaning, and shot at least 100 rounds through it without a single hiccup. So I'm doubting the lack of a pre-cleaning is the issue (assuming the gun is brand new like you said).

    I would suspect as others mentioned, either an improper grip (riding the slide catch or limp wristing), or a mag/ammo problem.

    Did you buy it new or used?
    +1. You should clean and inspect ANY new gun before you shoot it for the first time. Especially making sure there is nothing in the barrel which could cause a fairly large problem when sending rounds down range.

    I cannot tell alot about the slide sticking open, unless it's "stove piping" which is limp wristing it, as folks have said. I have a 26 and if you shoot it using the "Liberace" grip, it'll stovepipe every time, almost. But I learned too tight of a grip is also a problem.

    As with life in general, it is achieving of balance, grasshopper....
    You can never have "too much" ammo...

    My Glock manual, in the section titled "Preventive Maintenance of the Glock Semi-Automatic 'Safe Action' Pistol" (p.33) says this:

    FREQUENCY OF SERVICING

    [...]

    Your GLOCK pistol should be field stripped, cleaned and lubricated as follows:

    1. when brand new, before the first time it is fired, plus

    [etc]
    The Glock this manual came with is approximately 2 years old.

    So help me understand this "limp wristed" grip you guys refer to. I'm a bit confused how that could cause the slide to stay open so i need to get a better idea on what this grip looks like. I may be doing just that but not realize it.

    thanks

    First, check the slide stop lever. Press up on the slide stop lever and release. It should snap downwards. If it is not easy to tell if this is the case it may be best to check while field stripped.
