I sent him a PM with my e-mail to host his picture. Nothing yet.

If the stop slide out to the left some it can create issues! It's best to deepen the "V" groove that goes under the spring on the right side. It fixed up my Hunter doing this!

I'll just throw this in here.  I was going to start a new thread but maybe this is related.  I empty a magazine and the slide is held to the rear.  I insert and slam the next magazine in and the slide is released at the same time.  If I place it in the slide stays back but I'm used to giving them a good bump once inserted.  This might be a good feature to competitors but a little concerning to your just paper punching old fart.

Earl- thats what mine did at first. the problem got progressively worse. very rapidly during one range session!
Intercooler- I e-mailed you some pictures last night I hope they come out  good enough to show some detail of  what I am trying to describe.
squibullet- the pin looks flush with the outside of the slide stop even when it moves but tonight I will try to re-seat it like you described anyway. I hope my pictures come out on Intercooler's computer because they will show that my slide stop wear is on the corner of the squared off inside part of the lug. it is bright and shiny and obviously (to me) rounded from wear. your picture does not show the same wear. (that I can see)
thank you guys again for the interest and help.

Only one of the photos was good enough to share.

What does the slide look like in that area?
