I'd hate to get caught in a situation where I had to rely on the gun because by the time you got the mag in and cocked, you'd be dead.
So it's like what, a tight fit? Do you think the metal of the mag could've swelled over time slightly? I'm not too versed here, just tossing out layman ideas. I'm glad it shot well enough sounds like of all things that could go wrong a rough mag is the least problematic, no? Keep up posted man, I'm really curious about this thing.

Well, I thought the same thing you know, but looking at the mag it seems to be in perfect condition. Not bent, not twisted, swelled or anything like that. I can only assume it fits that tight, or there is something inside the magazine chamber I'm not seeing... I love the gun, it feels great in my hand and seems to work fine after you actually get the mag in. It just sucks that it's that hard to get in or eject. But like I said, think I'll have the gunsmith look at it, he likes a challenge.
