I hate to say it but I had an ounce of trouble with mine. After about 250- 300 rnds I started getting feeding problems. I replaced the mag springs with ISMI Chrome Silicon springs and it hasn't missed a pop. I also bought a Wilson Combat mag and it has performed flawlessly. Has anyone else had similar issues with DW? Or am I just unlucky?

There have definitly been some that have had issues with the Checkmate mags that come with the DW's...
I have not had any issues with mine - but it's hit or miss with the factory mags, I'm afraid.

I haven't had any trouble out of mine either. You are not unlucky. As I was buying my V-bob, there was another guy in the store and he pulled his DW out and told me he had trouble with his factory mags. He said he called Keith at DW and Keith mailed him two new mags. The newer mags he had were a little different but he said he hasn't had any trouble out of the new ones. The new ones were also checkmate.
