Did it again just racking the slide and letting it go quickly, and it did it fine.
Yeah man pull the slide back with force (announce your presence with authority) and let it slam home. I prefer the overhand racking method (palm on the top of the slide; rip it back and let it fly). Do not, under any circumstances, "ride" the slide forward when you are trying to chamber ammunition.
You can ride it forward when the gun is empty and you are clearing the weapon.
