1911 Slide Failure To Lock On Empty Mag

I purchased a Dan Wesson Vigil 9mm and made a trip to the range.
I only put a bit more than 100 rounds down the tube, but after about halfway in , the slide would fail to lock back on an empty magazine.
With this one exception the pistol ran great, smooth shooting and accurate.
I went home, cleaned and oiled the pistol and duplicated the issue when racking the slide with an empty magazine.
I took a second look at the pistol today and when I slowly racked the slide the slide stop would engage, but not completely.
I don't know if this is related, but a good bit of pressure is needed to engage the safety.
Any ideas on how to remedy this issue ?
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"
And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
Isaiah 6:8
