    I bought a new Browning Buckmark Camper 22LR pistol over the holidays. Very fun to shoot but, I am trying to figure out why it is malfunctioning. Here's the problem. When I shoot the last round in the clip, the stop open latch should automatically hold the slide open. It does NOT about 80% of the time. The gun does not jam, the slide just closes when it should stay open. Is the gun defective or is there a simple adjustment to be made?

    Thanks in advance,

    The empty mag is supposed to hold it open. Take off the grips and you can see how it works. It might just be tight or it might be the mag.
    Ignorance is a crime in 49 states. In the other one it is bliss.
