    Not really enough info for complete diagnosis, but:
    -Clean it out and lube it, very well could be gunked up and preventing full travel of the slide.
    -Try some snortier ammo.
    -Call the maker and see what they have to say.

    What make is it? Sig? Puma? Colt?

    I'd try a good cleaning first, followed by a little quality lubricant in the right places.
    Was it new or used? If used, you may be in for some expense getting it right.
