well i'm new to the forum and to handguns in general so hopefully someone could help me out here, so i inherited my fathers police issue glock 22 a few years back, and i disassembled it to clean and oil it up and then went to the range to try it out, on the first shot i had problems with the slide staying in the locked back position and every shot after that, i know it does this when the magazine is empty but its doing this after every round, so i have to manually release it and then fire, is this a common problem or an easy fix hopefully? could i have not assembled it correctly? any info would be greatly appreciated.

The only thing I could think that would cause the problem is the the spring on the slide lock lever is weak. Or possible that you are engaging it with you thumb by accident while firing, but that would be a little hard to do with the stock lever being that it is so small. I would take it to a good gunsmith and tell them about the problem, hopefully it is something minor like a wore out spring.

It sounds like a problem with the lever. Hard to say what the problem with it is with out seeing it. I would however venture to guess it is not put back together right. The spring has to go under the TOP pin (slide lock pin) on the frame. Otherwise, what you are describing will happen

sounds good, i actually have it completely disassembled right now ill double check the spring is under the top pin, and spring looks to be good and has a good amount of tension, doesnt seem weak from what i can tell

Also, make sure the lower (trigger pin) goes through the hole on the slide lock lever. That should fix the problem let us know
