Magazine Problem?
Rescently aquired a used G30 and it came with a G21 aditional magazine. After I came home, noticed that after loading the 10th round, it makes a rattling noise. In the range i did not heard it beacause of the ear plugs and shoot it with that magazine fully loaded twice (26 rounds) without any problem. My question is,could that represent a reliability issue? Today I carried it for the first time but leaved that magazine at home because i don't know if it culd fail when needed (I mean the magazine!) Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! BTW I love the gun and from know on, I think it will replace my G23 as my main carry piece!

I've never had that problem. Is it a new mag?

No, It is used.

Springs probably about had it.

Maybe take it, and a newer mag apart...(I know, I know, pain in the AZZ) and compare to see if you notice any differences/wear in parts...? Springs are no big deal to replace...:cool:

Keep feeding it at the range as well, see if a problem comes up, better there than when you REALLY need it...;)

It's normal, it's just the plastic between the floor plate and spring. What gen mag is it?

I don't really know but it is diferent than my G21 gen 3 mags in that it only have the "space" (i don't know the word in english) where the mag release goes in one side. My G21 mags have that "space" at both sides and do not do the rattling noise.
