    That ought to last until the next time you clean the mags, and then you'll hear crunch again. I have had that issue at various times with all my P220 magazines, alas...

    Still a great gun, though!

    Looking at how the spring slides into the follower, I can see how it could get hung up on part of the inside contours. So, I think that as long as I make sure to seat the spring properly before inserting it, I should be ok. Maybe

    I actually had an interesting malfunction at the range, I think due to this. It was an outside range and my fingers were very cold, so I was using the Uplula to load the magazines. I had a particularly tough time with one session and the gun FTL after the 1st shot. I inspected it and the magazine and saw that the next round just didn't slide up. It was jammed in the magazine. I had to knock the magazine on some wood to unjam the round and have it slide up. Lesson learned: don't force the bullets down if they don't want to go.

    Don't ever underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    Uplula is a finger saver for sure. My fingers already take a bit of beating at work and loading that 10th round into the mag does not help.
