No it's just the top side of the magazine slight scratches on the top. When i press the release to take out the mag it slides right out, and when i push it in to hear the "click" I do have to use some what force, but not too much.

That's where the mag encounters the mag release tab. Check and the scratch should be directly above the mag release notch on the mag.

When you are experiencing the lock issue is the slide locked back or at battery?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

That force you feel is the follower engaging the slide stop.

That's normal.

Oh okay canebrake, the last message u gave made me more comfortable. The side doesn't seem to have any issues. I even used my loaded mags to check the slide and it seems to be normal. Is it NORMAL for the magazine to already have scratches at the top end on the side? I will try to put pics today

A new mag inserted into a firearm will be rubbing on something.
We are just trying to identify what. You said two work okay and drop easily, but the third didn't, no?

I said all 3 are good except 1 seems to fit in better without any force.
And yeah I will show pics to identify it. But if it does show that it's rubbing and creating the scratch, is that a bad thing?

Not necessarily. Function is important. If the mag is not functioning correctly, then it is of no use.

If the trigger bow is rubbing on the mag, that could affect the trigger pull.
If the grip screws are "holding" the mag and not letting it drop, that could affect the reload.
If the mag release does not allow the mag to drop, it could affect the reload.
If there is a defect in the mag, it could affect the function of the firearm.

Dan you are a beast! I think it's the grip screw because of the measurements of the scratch. It's the top middle on the SIDE of the mag. The trigger bow is not facin that way right?

Did you change the grips on your gun?

Did you go to a thin/slim grip?

If yes, did you change bushings and screws?
