My Auto-Ord G.I. 1911 has a problem. When I shoot, the slide stop backs out about a 1/4". No problems with function yet but what could cause this, never seen or heard of this?

You have a problem, it just hasn't caused a malfunction just yet.

How is the engagement lip on the Slide Stop? Does it look like there is a good lip on it to engage the slide to keep it from walking. I bet it is not enough being it is walking out and it isn't keeping the slide open on either the take down notch or the slide stop pocket.

My guess is you have a fautlty Slide Stop or your pocket on your frame is milled out a little too deep.

Start with replacing the Slide Stop and see if that fixes the problem. If it is the cut on the frame, there are ways to tune the slide stop to keep it from walking.

Thanks,
Bob

Replace the slide release lever. The edge that retains it in the slide is probably worn and is a common problem.
