    Sorry, can't reproduce that with my USPc 9, but I'm not sure what the design differences are.

    Just curious...does the mag release feel normal? Is so, the only thing I can think of might be that some pressure from a loaded magazine (assuming this) is pushing SOMETHING funny in there. Maybe try pushing UP on the magazine, pressing the release, then pulling it downward?

    I'm not up on the HK's but have you tried pulling down the mag base plate lip while pressing the mag release? I wonder if it's hung up or something.

    switch and decocked should not matter, you should be able to drop the mag regardless.

    I just tried the same thing with my USPf in .40, and the mag dropped right out. Sounds like something is wrong. Can you pull the mag out?

    Factory mag? Maybe you loaded 1 too many rounds in it. I did so once, but it wouldn't load in the gun. Is it not dropping free? Or jammed in the gun.

    I have an HK usp compact .45, it should'nt matter what condition your carrying it in the mag should drop when you press the mag button. I would give HK customer service a call maybe they can help.

    yeah something is up with yours. push and hold the mag button in place and pull on the mag, if you get it out try the other mag. try to figure out where the problem is from there
