Slide lock reassembly

I bought a brand new Kimper .45. All Kimper mags.
I put a few hundred rounds through.
Cleaned it last night.
When I reassembled the gun seemed to work correctly, slide lock works well.

However, when I put a magazine in, and rack it, the slide lock automatically engages and locks in the rear position. Its almost impossible to release.

What did I do wrong?

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois wolfe1933. If you're inserting an empty magazine in the gun then nothing is wrong, that's what it should be doing. You have to drop the magazine to release the slide.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?
