Hi everyone I’ve got a silly question but I just got a new Hellcat and notice that when I rack the slide that it engages the slide lock. The gun is empty and no rounds in the mag when I noticed this . I checked my other 9mm’s also no rounds and empty mag and this doesn’t happen to them . Is this normal ? I know this is a silly question for everybody but I’m fairly new to the world of handguns but really wanting to become more knowledgeable and I know that I’ll get good and reliable answers from this forum .

If there is a magazine inserted when you rack the slide it will always and should always engage the slide lock and remain open. When it fires the last round this indicates the magazine is empty. If the slide remains open when racked or empty and the slidelock does not engage there is an issue with the slide lock spring.
