Llama Mini-Max Sub compact held open

Llama Min-Max Sub Compact. 10 + 1 capacity. All 1911 style except for a side extractor like S&W. Closer to a Para Ordance.
This gun is close to a para Ordenance. I just got it used for $300. Grreat shape with box and papers. 2004 production.
When I shot the gun after the 2nd time the slide would go back to the hold open lever and stay open. release the lever it would go a couple rounds and lock open again.
I can see some brass on the hold oven lever above where it contacts the magazine. Just shooting Winchester ball form Walmart.
Any ideals?

sub compact

It could be that the slide stop is engaging - when the stop is in the rest position and the slide closed sometimes we insert a drill through the spring tube and just slightly dimple the slide stop so it will not go into slide stop when firing.
