    Remember that the problem that you're trying to correct is the bullet/cartridge prematurely bumping up the slide stop.
    You still need enough slide stop leaf to engage the magazine follower when your magazine is empty. Soooo as per the post by Bud White - don't remove an excessive amount of metal from the slide stop leaf or your slide wont lock back when it's supposed to because then it will not be pushed up by the magazine follower as the slide travels rearward on an empty mag.

    The reason that you want to make sure that you buy good quality magazines is that you do not want to alter parts specs on your pistol to accommodate cheap out of spec magazines.

    If a magazine is too loose in the frame well - or the follower is too loose (or too tight) in the magazine - or the the magazine release catch notch is not perfectly located - OR the magazine follower is incorrectly designed
    - then do not "fit" your pistol slide stop to one crap magazine.
    Then it won't - or may not - always work correctly with your best magazines.
    Often you are just better off buying top quality magazines and saving slightly out of specification magazines for non-critical target work.

    Advice...buy the best magazines that you can afford to buy for carry purposes.
    There is USUALLY a good reason why they are more expensive.
    It's because they are kept to tighter tolerances and better/more carefully assembled from the best materials.
    Just FYI

    And since you can never have enough magazines then buy 1 best quality magazine and see how your pistol functions with that one BEFORE you do too much alteration work on your handgun.
