How to lock back your Radom Slide

Guys: I have read all your "posts" on having problems locking back your
pistols (radom) slide. On the late produced Radoms the slide is locked back by lifting up on the hammer drop lever while holding the slide back, thus the
slide will lock on a notch cut on the hammer. To drop the slide, just depress

end of production (Jan thru April 45) some radoms were produced without
even the hammer drop lever, I have never seen one, though I would like

"weakness" in the radom is on the end of the recoil rod. I have bought more
than a few of them thru the years where they were either broken off or wore
