I've handled a few Brand new 239s lately and on every one, the Slide Release is impossible to work. I can't get it it to release, I need to work the slide to cock. It's very small and it's very tightly fitted to the slide. I always thought Glocks were hard to work, but this is way worse! I was thinking about getting one but not if the release wont work. Of course, the sales person said it would get better, but I don't see how it would. Has anyone else noticed this? Has anyone purchased a new one recently and can elaborate, does it get better? By the way, not too long ago, I saw a used one that was made in early 2000's and the slide release seemed larger, more like the 226/229's release and was much easier to work.
