    Problem with XDsc .40 9 round mags

    My 9 round magazines are not ejecting properly lately. The gun has approximately 500-600 rounds through it with no failure to fires. However, of late 2 of my 4 magazines have become rather sticky when inserting and ejecting them into the gun, they cycle cleanly once they're in the gun. The 2 magazines I am having problems with are the ones that I use for practice regularly and they are maintained, as is the gun. There are obvious wear marks both on the front side(side facing muzzle) of the problem magazines and where they rub on the inside of the handle. It's very odd...

    If you look very closely you can see small convex dents in the front of the mags that are sticking in the approximate positions the loaded rounds would be when fired. Is it possible the recoil of the gun is snapping the bullets into it and denting it over time?

    Am I simply holding it incorrectly and causing this problem?

    Sounds like the bullets are slamming into the front of the mag under recoil. Odd.

    It's possible you aren't holding the pistol tightly enough.

    I'd use the functional mags, try using a tighter grip, and see what happens over time.

    Well, I sent the magazines back to springfield on Wednesday. The lady on the phone said they would have the smiths take a quick look but they would be replaced free of charge. Absolutely fantastic customer service, she didn't think twice about getting new ones for me.

    Does anyone else have any other ideas on the cause of this problem I'm having? I'd like to not have it become recurring..
