Welcome to the forum E3000. The slide is not going back into battery. What "cheap" ammo were you using. I would field strip it, clean and lube it and try it with a different ammo.
That could be your problem. Being a reload, that ammo may not be quite to spec. Try some new Blazer Brass, UMC or something in that price range. If you have another 9mm it would be interesting to see if the US Cartridge ammo runs OK in it.US Cartridge Cleanbarrel Remanufactured 9MM 115 Gr Bronze TPJ (Bulk)
