rammerjammer will become famous soon enough
If I insert a fresh magazine hard enough the slide will go home on my 9E and my P90.

Some semi-autos do this if the magazine is inserted forcefully. Seems to happen with polymer framed guns more. Does it release if you just push the magazine in?

Check your manual, I believe it says this may happen.

And it happens with virtually all firearms if you insert the mags with enough force.

Simple physics...the force of the hit is more than the force of the slide lock spring.

I checked and here's what it says...

Insert the magazine into the frame, taking care
that the magazine is locked in place by the
magazine latch. Slamming the magazine into
the frame forcibly is not necessary.

Yup, that's what it says on page 16.

And on page 11:


The slide stop is spring loaded downward. Therefore, when there is a loaded magazine in place and the pistol is jarred, the slide can fly forward and chamber a cartridge. For this reason and as an essential safety practice, the user should always be careful to keep fingers away from the trigger, keep the safety on, and always keep the pistol pointed in a safe direction.

It's one of the topics that gets discussed here every six months; I've been here long enough that it is "burned" into my memory.

(Kinda like the number of times my mother told me to wear clean underwear so if I get into an accident....)
