Default slide won't lock back

My .22 Victory will not stay locked back without the magazine. Any ideas why? Thanks.

Are you pushing up on the slide release ? When empty the top of the follower in the magazine pushes the slide release up to lock the slide back. With no magazine there is nothing pushing it up. So you have to do it manually.

"Notch" in slide may be worn or slide stop itself. Does slide stop move completely up? Check for wear.
