1 - If the safety is on and I sweep the slide-lock down to close the slide, the safety gets disengaged as well. - I don't normally use the slide-lock to release, I slingshot, and I never use the safety, so this doesn't bother me.
2 - I have to change my grip to manually activate the slide lock. (To lock back the slide) This is basically true on every pistol I own, so no big deal.
3 - Currently the slide locks back on empty about 75% of the time even though my thumb sits on the safety lever and the slide lock lever while shooting. This is actually more than it locks back on almost every pistol I use, and I suspect it is because the springs in the magazines are crazy strong and the follower is pushing up the slidestop despite my thumb touching it. I've come to accept that my grip is going to cause to slide to fail to lock back, and I'm OK with that since I slingshot every reload anyway.
