From a Bersa warranty center. Very good info as I have heard of slide stops wearing out the notch on the slide and then will not hold the slide open anymore. Not sure if this is the correct area, If not please move.

I have used the slide catch to close the slide but only once. It just stands to reason that if you do this it is metal rubbing against metal and friction is not your friend. I saw on another forum, I believe BT saw the same thing and while it should not have worn out as quickly as his did. Especially on the warranty replacement gun. The fellow should have learned something from the first gun ruined by misuse.

Good advice for any auto. Kel-Tec's slide stops are very small and cannot be used to drop the slide. The slide stop on Walther P22's wear and get bent, as well as gouging the cast MIM slide.

The funny thing is that Kahr dictates in the CW9 owners manual that releasing the slide stop is the ONLY way to chamber a round.

It's easier to just grab the slide and pull back a little bit more then release to slingshot it closed.
