I used to carry a 70S in 380 and it saved my butt. There are 2 Beretta 70S models floating around out there. One is the real 70S and the other is a pieced together model 1935 that Stoeger put on the market calling it a 70S. I know someone who bought one thinking it was a real 70S.

Default Mod 70s Mags

I recently bought a .380 Mod 70s (Gracia). It was a bear to break down. I took it to a local gunsmith who looked at it and told me the slide and frame were very rough. He deburred and polished them with a stone and now all is good and I love shooting this gun.

My question is about mags. I bought 5 (Garcia) mags from Gunclip. These mags are very very hard to insert and remove. One of them is so bad I won't use it because it would have to be inserted with a lot of force and I'm afraid it would never come out. The original mag that came with the gun is not marked Garcia and is also very tight to insert and remove. The only difference I have seen betweeh the Garcia and non-Garcia mag is the Garcias won't lock the slide back after the last shot. I bought the Garcias because I read that non-Garcias in a Garcia gun will jam. So my questions are : are the mags supposed to be that tight, if not are they supposed to be "drop-free", and is what I read about Garcia mags true of BS?

BTW I have a model 86 and it is a great gun too.

Thanks for you help and info.
