Default SW9VE Only Fitting 15 Rounds

it says that this is a 16+1 round magazine, but that 16th round IS NOT fitting.


Is there a trick to loading my magazine that I'm missing?

It's probably a stiff spring that is not allowing your last round.

The best cure for this issue is a mag loader. Glocks and XDs often come with them, and I'd imagine those would fit your Sigma mags just fine. You can sometimes find them for next to nothing used. But if you buy/order one new, get a Maglula UpLULA.

I wouldn't even bother trying to fill it up all the way, just seems like if you leave one round out then that's a little less stress on the spring.

If it won't load 16 then load only 15, don't force it. If you did manage to get the 16th loaded, it probably won't feed the first round.
