Actually, why would the height of the feed lips affect this? It feeds the top round fine, every time, it's the second round in the mag we're concerned about. Tapping the feed lips will only cause a tight mag, (vertically, as in getting rounds into it), to get tighter. I need more info, but will think about it.
Dont bend ur feed lips its not the problem. My 938 does the same thing. Its due to the feed lips angle. As the first round is chambered the frictuon between the first drags the second round foward. Not a big deal at all. ive got 300 rds thru my 938 and its never had a problem yet.

Sig installed a bump on the top of each mag to keep the rounds in place when they are in the gun.
Are you talking about the bump on the top of the follower? If so, what would that have to do with keeping the rounds in the mag? Particularly the top ones?

And I agree, at this time I'm not inclined to mess with the feed lips. I have done so with some Beretta mags, that was to adjust it to feed 40 instead of 9mm. But in general, messing with the feed clips is a slippery slope, I suspect.

Just imagine what you could do with a P239 in 9mm

I considered the P239. Great gun, like all Sigs, but completely different animal. DA/SA vs the 938's SAO (with a great 1911 style trigger), and a bigger gun without the capacity advantage. My 938 has a 7+1 capacity and about HALF the weight of the 239 and in a much more concealable package. Both great guns, but very different just the same.

They are all but impossible to find. I looked into it previously, and Sig appeared to be the only place and they are eternally slow to get them from.

This is normal. Simply ease the mag out carefully and you wont strip the next round off loosely. I presume you are doing this to load the gun to max capacity for concealed carry. If so, try loading only one round in the mag, chamber it, then eject the mag to load it up to max. Otherwise, what you are experiencing is normal and not to be worried with.

It is? I was under the impression that semi-autos were supposed to drop their mags freely when the release was depressed. My Beretta does... Aren't there potential situations where there is a lull, and while you can, you take the time to insert a new mag, at full capacity? In that case, a mag that doesn't freely drop would be a liability. (And I'm referring to semis in general, not just the 938.)

Well, no. See my first post on this thread, #7. I'm referring to unloading a loaded gun. But the situation you mention is similar.
