Any Browning-style semi-auto should do something similar if you ride the slide home. That's why you don't do that, ever, when reloading the firearm.

The last few mm of slide travel is what locks up the barrel in battery, and is more resistive to the spring pressure than the rest of the slide travel. Barrel is tilting up to lock in this type of, and the spring pressure is attempting to overcome that friction, while having to balance not being overly resistive (heavy weight spring) and causing ammo feeding malfunctions.
