I may be doing it wrong, but I don't care.....8000 rnds thru Ms. MKIII and have been using the bolt stop release the entire time. This gun works great for me and what I do with it and slingshoting it takes me out of rhythm. If I need to replace a worn part sometime in the future then so be it.

MKI Target , MKII Standard and four different 1911's all get the bolts/slides released by the little lever ... but I don't dry fire any of them .
My Walther PPK gets the slingshot method because that's the way it was designed ...no little lever is on it .

I have always used the "slide release" on my MK2 Government. Thousands of rounds later and no issues. The same on my 1911.

Like others, I use the bolt stop on my MKIII's to release the bolt. I use the slide stop as a release on all my semi-autos with the exception of two S&W Shields as they are almost impossible to use as a slide release.

Reading through this string reminded me that the owner's manual for my Coonan 357 calls it a both a Slide Release and Slide Catch. The operational portion specifically states to release the slide using the Slide Catch.

Manual for the Colt says to grip the slide and pull rearward. Don't think I ever read that manual before. In the Navy they always trained us to use the slide stop, so that's what I've always done.

The only thing that engenders more arguments than the old "slide stop vs slide release" controversy is "how, and how often, to clean your gun".
