    Magazine "problem"?

    I bought a new Glock 27 gen. IV yesterday and I CAN NOT load any of the 3 magazines with the ninth round. I broke the loader and almost broke my thumb trying. Is this a common thing to have happen?

    Glock mags are notoriously stiff when new. Load with eight and let sit for a few days. The tenth should go right in. I had the same problem with my G30 10-rounders but no problem now.

    I found this at another site which describes the problem I'm having with my new gen3 G27...

    "Trouble with Glock 27
    Hello again, I have a Glock 27 pistol in caliber 40 S & W, and I have a problem when the charger is full of gun ammunition (9 rounds) I can not mount the weapon, is very hard, however, with eight cartridges I do not have that problem , is also hard, but I can mount the weapons. What advice do you give me?"

    Responses were similar to what sjohnson said... notorious issue, just have to let them break in.

    Are they Glock mags or a third party mags. I don't have a Glock but I have had problems with third party mags on other types of weapons.

    They're just stiff - load them with 8 and let them sit a while. You'll get the 9th one in after a few days. I've noticed that not only is it just the springs being "stiff" when new, but also the baseplates on the Glock mags have some "give" to them - maybe not at first, but after sitting loaded for 6 months or so that have a rounded profile from the spring pushing on them.
