Hello All,

Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this... My 226 will not complete the double action motion, will fire single action tho, with the magazine on the left. It also, will not lock the slide back on the last round. I do not see any difference at all, any ideas? TIA All

The one magazine with the slide not locking back, could be a weak/bad magazine spring. I would try and replace it and see if that helps at all.

The slide not locking after the last round could be a grip problem if your thumbs ride high and put the slightest amount of pressure of the slide stop lever.

As for not firing in double action (hammer down), this might be a problem with the pistol for the factory or an armorer to look at.

Thanks for the replies, both behaviors only occur with the magazine on the left. I have several mec-gar mags that work fine also.

The hammer begins moving back but never goes forward at the end of the trigger pull
