    Make sure it isn't happening with other magazines. That's usually the culprit

    Mark your mags. I always have notebook/pen with me. If there are any malfunctions I take note what gun/magazine/ammo. For me, most have been either mag or cheap quality ammo issues.

    If you have it down to a one particular mag. look it over, look at the lips of the mag and see if it is straight, or dented/bent. Try to clean it, replace a spring - but if it gets to be a pain, toss it and replace. I only put so much effort into a mag, then it gets smashed.

    If you get it narrowed down to one mag, and it still acts up after you clean and reassemble it, take the weapon and the mag back to your local gun shop and see if they can see anything bent or misaligned on the magazine. If your LGS is where you bought it, they should be happy to look it over for you.

    I'd recommend you take the magazine apart and make sure it is assembled correctly. I've heard of people purchasing magazines.....having problems, then finding out that the mag spring was in backwards....that can make a big difference in reliability.
