First thing, disassemble and thoroughly clean your Magazines.  The Follower may not be rising far enough to actuate the Slide Stop Lever.

Second thing, inspect the Slide Stop Lever extension to see if it can be activated by the Magazine Follower Shelf.  If broken, replace.

With an EMPTY/unloaded Pistol and clean EMPTY Magazine, insert the Magazine into the Pistol and pull the Slide fully to the rear. Release the Slide.  If the Slide is held back, your problem is not the Pistol and may be your Ammunition is not powerful enough to full travel the slide back.  If the Slide is not held back, you may have a problem with either the Magazine or the Slide Stop.

Adding to the previous reply, field strip the pistol then put the slide stop back in. Insert an empty mag and make sure the slide stop is being lifted with some authority. If not you may need new mag springs. Try each mag to see if the problem is with some or all of them. If this test does not find the problem check the distance that the empty cases are being thrown. If they are falling close to you it could be the recoil spring is too stiff for the ammo being used.

Before expending money on fixes, try shooting it one handed to remove the possibility that you are resting a thumb on the slide catch.

I had the same problem and it turned out to be one of the magazines.  I bought it used and it came with 5 Mags...4 good once and the bad little rascal lol.

Does it lock back when you rack the slide back with an empty mag in place?
