    Right here least I was a minute ago
    couple years ago had a customer bring me a Chippa 22 Beretta M9 copy .. Said it would slam fire

    did the normal things .. made sure the firing pin was clean clear and functioning properly ..
    for the next 4 days several, times each day, I would load a mag go outside and cycle the action
    cock, drop the side, eject the rd, recock slide and repeat thru the whole mag
    not once did it slam fire ..
    just before calling the customer to pick up I loaded one rd in the mag . Did not go outside .. standing by the phone on the counter I dropped the slide and shot the credit card machine
    now keep in mind at this point I had cycled at least 100 rds thru the gun without a single slam fire
    taught me a lesion I hope to never repeat
    I carry a Nuke50 because cleaning up the mess is Silly !!

    One round? If the slide contacts and presses down the round after the one it is chambering, it may soften its forward movement. Next step, if you think it rates a next step, would be to remove or tie back the hammer, and see if it slamfires due to poor control of the firing-pin's inertia.
