Good day all. My brother has a M&P 9c and when we fill up a 12 round mag to capacity there is a noticable difficulty in seating the mag. My Kimber felt somewhat similar when inserting full 8 round mags. I was wondering if this was a common thing or not. Thanks.

It happens. Slam it harder and the mag spring will loosen a bit after time.

I think the problem is that it's the same spring for the 17 and 12 round mags and possibly even the 10 round CA mags.

Just echoing the other comments... Slam that baby in and it will loosen up over time. This is also the case for some other things...

It's a combat weapon for goodness sakes! Man up and slam that puppy home. Get over the white glove mindset, don't bother with high resolution pictures of tiny imperfections either, just go out and shoot the snot out of it (cleaning is optional).

Thanks all. I figured a good smack would do the trick. Just wanted to see if it was the norm, you never know. The M&P is my brothers but I still get to shoot the crap out of it! I have a G19 so it's always a bit of a competition when we get to the range. G19 vs M&P 9c, always a good range trip.

I can solve that argument for you and your brother... M&P for the win. What is sad is ai Have 2 Glocks in the safe that have pretty much turned inot safe queens since I transitioned to 1911's and M&P's.

Thing is, I did shoot the M&P a slight bit better and he shot my G19 better. That was the last range visit. I would have to put a couple of hundred rounds through both before I decide if I want to switch. Honestly, the G19 feels way better in my hands because there is no relief under the trigger guard. Damn, I love my G19. I got a good holster and good sights, if only I read about the M&P when I made the purchase.

A good firm push should insert it. My eight round 1911 mags significantly harder to seat than the seven rounders. But keep in mind not to over do it. You are slamming a brass cartridge into the slide. It is possible to deform the brass such that it may not chamber.
