Yes, it’s working as designed
Ok im just making sure ..i do see.a wear mark on the realease itself ..and also theres a fine machinend groove there ..im not sure if its supposed to line up with anything or not ....but yea that was my issue .. i could just pull the realease down and the slide would come off without me pulling it back ..and also i could rack it (cock it) and do the same thing and it would come off ....im nit pulling the slide back then the realease like i see in alot of videos

When you pull the slide lock down, the slide will come forward off the frame towards the muzzle. And yes, if pointed slightly downward the slide will just fall off.

Allright, I see what you are saying now. Is the slide lock installed in the correct direction?

Well, not quite a 1/4", but enough for the barrel to clear the lip of the tab.

The lip faces the rear sight, the flat faces the front sight.

No worries, it's a common mistake. Same as installing the slide stop with the wire spring above the locking block pin. The slide will lock back after every round. Small pin first, then slide stop, then trigger pin (grooved). There is also a direction for the trigger spring, although it will run upside down.

Is that an alligator or caiman?
