I normally don't fill my mags to full capacity unless i'm at the range.
With a 14 round mag, I usually keep 11 or 12 in it.
My CZ70 holds 8 but I normally keep 6 in there.

Most mags "will loosen up" after use. I have 2 mags for each pistol which stay loaded all the time with self protection loads. And I 4 or 5 mags for each that get range use only. Constant tension on a mag spring is not what wears them out. Its the constant loading and unloading the wear on the springs. Good luck

I'm glad you resurrected this thread to tell me it is normal. I don't even own the gun any more, but I'm glad I don't have to worry about that 15th round.

I got a Glock 19. I thought it would be difficult to fill the mag all the way but it wasn't.

If it's that hard just try using the included Glock mag loader tool.

and no, filling the mag all the way doesn't cause any feeding problems on the Glock. I've fired 250 with 0 jams.

Remember, one persons "necro thread" is another persons "new thread".
