G23 Slide stop problem.

I just got back from the range and I noticed when I was seating my mag hard into the well g23 gen4 it was releasing the slide by itself. My first guess was that I had a bad extended slide release lever and I switched back to my factory one but that didn't solve the problem. I also thought maybe I had a bad magazine and that wasnt the problem. It happens with all three mags.

The weird thing is it doesnt happen when the magazines are unloaded. I have tried my hardest to make it happen with a unloaded mag and the slide will stay locked back no matter what. Im confused and Im looking for some help. Thanks.

This is something that happens with most of my handguns. If I slam a fully loaded mag home hard enough, it will drop the slide in my Gen4 G23, my Gen3 G22, my H&K USP, as well as my old H&K P2000 and HK45. I don't know the explanation for why it happens. But I never saw it as a problem.
