So far mine hasn't done that.

I have a KelTec PF-9 9mm semi-auto that I carry from time to time, but I have noticed several instances of the magazine having been released, when removing the holstered gun from my pocket. It sits in a Mitch Rosen Pocket Softy holster. The holster doesn't seem to be doing the deed, but it must be the cause.
Question: Does anyone have a problem with the magazine releasing on the PF-9 without intending to have it do so? If so, have you found a cure?
This is the only pistol I've ever had that has allowed the magazine to come released without my intending it to happen. The idea that the magazine might drop right out of the mag well upon drawing it has me a bit spooked. It's out of the lineup until I can determine the cause and correct it.
Has not happened with mine, does yours have a plastic or metal release button? Might check on the Kel-Tec owners forum, you will find your answer and solution over there.

Its probably a plastic mag release that needs to be replaced with an updated medal one.

A couple of the threads do have some pics, though, which show certain characteristic worn spots on the plastic release which seem to be tell-tale signs of a flaky release arm.
So, I will be contacting Kel-Tec for a metal magazine release. I'm assuming Kel-Tec is the supplier, as one thread somewhat implies (click).
Any other explanations for flaky, unintentional release? Or, is that pretty much it?

+1 on the bet of the plastic mag release having been worn down. Call them up and get a replacement (or send it back home for the update if you're not comfortable doing it yourself).
Get the metal release and your peoblem should be solved. I have seen carry guns that picked up so much lint or whatever that the mag release never engaged properly. Of course no one on this forum would be guilty of such neglect.

I have a P3AT that had the same problem. The plastic release sets too proud of the grip. Kept ejecting in my pocket. Took a dremel and slowly ground it down just enough. Still easily ejected by hand but has never come out in the pocket since then. Been about a year since I modified it.
I have gone one coming, now. Wasn't aware that an update of the mag catch had been made.Get the metal release and your peoblem should be solved.
Still, with the new metal catch that's coming, it might well become a problem. So, I will monitor the height and the leather in that area. If needed, I'll have a gunsmith shave the height of the button, a bit.
I have not had a problem with my PF9 so call Kel-tec and they will take care of you (best support in the business).
