When you pull the mag apart can you tell if the metal sleeve in it is full length? The older mags weren't and had a tendency to 'bulge' when fully loaded and not drop free from the gun when you push the mag release.

If your bullets rattle in your mag. tap the bottom of the mag. in the palm of your hand, that will shift the spring in the mag. and stop the rattle.

Fairly common in many double stack pistol magazines. Don't worry about it

elglocko, take a few rounds out- tap the bottom- reload- no more rattle.

I have a 19 that I bought new, if I load 15 in a mag there is no rattle, 14 there is. All 3 mags do this and they are all new. I've never had issues with them

Send your mags back to Glock and they will send you new ones at no charge.
