Anyone else having a problem releasing the slide lock when shooting left handed? If so any ideas on a fix? Thanx All.

It's rather difficult from either side, but that's because it was engineered as a slide stop, not a slide release. It will forward the slide when manipulated, but it wasn't designed to do so reliably...it's just a bonus.

^^^^this^^^^ it was not designed as a slide release! It can be used as one but will wear the lock out before it's time.

If you look closely, you'll see the right side lever isn't even touching the slide. That's why it is more difficult than the other side

I did see that it touches only one side. Seems strange they even have it then. Was part of the reason for my decision to buy one. Thanx all.

It still works as intended...you can engage the slide lock with your left thumb when racking the firearm...it just wasn't put there for disengaging the slide.
