If you think about it, it couldn't possibly be a magazine problem.
The slide is locking back while there are still rounds in the magazine. In order for the slide to lock back the magazine follower has to be at the top of the magazine to push up against the slide stop - this isn't physically possible while there are rounds in the magazine.
Therefore - it has to be either the shooter pushing the slide stop, or an internal mechanical problem with the gun itself.
"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution, which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." -1792, James Madison
There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
