I think the same article said that if the key is left out, the slide can come back off the frame. Not true for the Steyr-Hahn, but it is true for the old dual link Brownings. Leave out the key (Colt called it the slide stop) on those guns and the shooter will eat the slide. That was one of the many reasons the Army rejected the early Colts; the 1911 model, of course, corrected that and the other problems as well.
