Oh yeah, we're on par with North Korea's rocket scientists! Give us enough time, we'll eventually even get a bottle rocket off the ground!

Maybe someone is, or knows, a military armorer that can answer this better.

As a part of "manual of arms" you lock bolt/slide to rear, inspect chamber....... then last step is releasing bolt to SLAM home.
You DO NOT "ride" the bolt/slide forward.

I have NEVER even heard of a quality firearm "chipping" in any way from properly releasing slide/bolt into battery on an empty (or loaded) chamber.

But I do know that some people can tear up an anvil with a biscuit.
And I know some of them well.
This is what I remember, and have been told by old gunners, not the tactikewl crowd. Almost every semi auto gun locks at locking points on the mating surfaces, NOT the cartridge case. Cases can vary in OAL so having a gun lock on the case would be, well, foolish. Everytime a gun is fired the slide slams home on those same points.

I use the slide release on all guns that have them. Occasionally some tactikewl nut will say it is wrong, they get told to mind their own business. IOW go pester people in the mall.
