Ok so my dad and I both have smith 6906 and his is having a slight malfunction that is just starting to occur more regulary... he loads it 12+1 and starts shooting.. upon shooting that 13th bullet the slide WILL NOT stay open to indicate no more rounds.. any possible way to fix this, we have spent countless hours trying to figure this out it does it when the gun is clean as a whistle or dirty as if it has been through mud...

First, change magazines.

Second, see if it happens for both of you.

Third, take advantage of Smith's lifetime warranty.

yep , try another mag. then see if the slide stop is being pushed upward as it should with a empty mag in. Is there wear or rounding on the slide stop locking surface to the slide?

Make sure that you are not accidentally holding down the slide release sometimes.

The mags are the likely source if they have been in use for a while. You could also change the followers.

Check the mag. The mag should push up the mag release to lock back the slide when the last round is fired.
