please help, my new para16-40 slide lock dont lock
went to the range with my brand new para 16-40. shoots very well! but the slide lock dont lock when the mag is empty-but it locks if i hand cycle it. Does this need break in? or has the gun has problem? Thanks!

Sounds like it could be a tight gun that is short cycling. You could try going 2# lighter on the recoil spring (that 1640 monster uses an 18# spring that feels like 100# to me). A 16# spring during break in might cure it.
