Default New ZEV slide sticking All the way back??

Just got it in today.. I installed the parts from my factory slide, and noticed that the slide would lock back a little all the way to the rear , pass the slide lock.. Took it to the range and the first 4 shots cycled fine. Then it got stuck all the way back (passed the slide lock) every shot.. I could simply puch it into battery like it is slight hung up on something.. I know I should send it back to ZEV, but is there anything minor I should check and or fix.

Found it... Looks like there is a raised line in the top the slide.. When the action comes back it hangs up on the front part of the barrel hood, leaving a deep scratch.. the photo is blurry but it can be felt if you lightly rub your finger on it I only shot one mag out of it.. Tempted to file it down myself and polish it.. But If it don't fix it I will be stuck with it..I may contact ZEV tech to see if they can swap it out..

Yah I am a little bummed.. I wonder if that line should be there at all. If it was missed in the milling it should have beed caught in inspection..

Yes, thats what I did.. An after market ZEV tech slide.. The factory slide works fine.. The ZEV slide looks to have not been milled all the way..
