Hi, I bought this for my wife and she has been having a grand time with it. Unfortunately she suffers with Arthritis in her fingers leaving her a bit weaker than most. This gun worked for her and she shot very well. Our last 2 range days it has become impossible for her to release the slide with a full or even empty clip in it. I shoot Glock 26 and 30 and I can't release the slide without backing it up first. You know that when somethings not running right it takes the fun out of it and her shooting is suffering as a result. It's not quite 6 mos. old with about 1000 rnds through it. Any help greatly appreciated.
