    That's your answer. Forcing it to do both, will eventually make it worthless for either.

    You can buff out both edges to make it happen, but you'll have your finger stuck in there one day when it decides to release and you'll be praying out loud, very loud...

    Any tips? A spot i can lube extra or polish maybe?

    Thanks!
    I found your question while searching for a supplier for an extended slide (stop, or release - I could care less) for the Keltec 9mm. My Brother-in-law bought one and showed it to me today. The first thing that I noticed was the wimpy slide stop. I had the same problem with Glock pistols.

    The simple solution for the Glocks was to install an extended slide stop. This gives the user more surface area for the thumb to press downward on, thus making it easier.

    I haven't found one for the Keltec, yet. If you can find one, that will most likely solve your problem.

    Read your manual,they recommend using the rim of a case to pop the pin out.
    I use the slingshot method on all my guns when loading,it's too easy for a thumb/finger to slip off a slide stop/release and with practice is just as fast and more reliable

    I learned to release the slide on autoloaders by pulling back on the slide and releasing. That's just how I learned, and it works on all makes and models.

    Using slide Stop, using sling shot; either works. It you're not supposed to press the slide lock(stop, catch, etc.), why does it have a tab sticking out instead of being total concealed so one's thumb won't inadvertantly activate it? Glock itself says either way. Whatever works best for you. It's another one of those endless, senseless arguments like storing mags full or empty, one in the chamber or not.

    Do what works best for you and what you have confidence in. Only you need to account for it.
