    Are you sure that its not your grip and you are accidentally pushing up with it with your thumb when you shoot?

    Are there bbs in the mag when you're shooting or are you dry firing?

    Have you lubed the slide at all? Make sure to use 100% silicone oil when you lube it, no WD40.

    There should be a spring sandwiched inbetween 2 tiny pistons right above the grip. One piston pushes on the safety the other pushes the slide lock down. Chances are one if not all those parts are missing.
