I too just purchased a 9 mm Performance Center Shield and took it to the range for the first time today. I was shooting 115 grain Blazer Brass FMJ. Halfway through the 3rd or 4th magazine, the slide locked to the rear and wouldn't budge. I released the magazine and fiddled with it for awhile, inserting empty magazines, etc. and finally got the slide released. I fired another 3 or 4 magazines and it locked up again.
Once at home I fiddled with it some more and finally got the slide released and attempted to field strip. I had a heck of a time getting the slide locked back. The slide lock lever didn't want to move. Finally got it stripped down and cleaned and lubed. After reassembly, everything seems to function properly, but have not shot it yet...hopefully this weekend.
There is definitely something going on with these pistols.
