You may want to look at the hi point forums. Like said, it is most likely the mag. I had a problem like that with my taurus, was an easy fix.

Do as Cane suggests & try it with one less round. If that stops it, tell him to load the mag up full & let it set for a week or so then try it again.

I have to agree with jj on his assessment of this comment.

What does the owners manual say to do?
