Magazine issue
 
I have a Wilson Tactical that I keep in my nightstand in which I keep one Glaser in the pipe, 5 in the Wilson mag, and 3 Hornady HPs bringing up the rear.

In getting ready to go to the range tomorrow, I'm unloading the pistol and realize that the mag isn't engaging and it's falling out without depressing the release.

When I remove 2 bullets from the mag, it seems to engage okay.

Is this a mag problem or a pistol problem? Please tell me it's a mag problem!:o

I could do that, but they're closed for the weekend. I knew you guys were open.

Since the mag will lock in place, regardless of number of rounds in it, my first guess is the issue isn't gun or magazine related. A full magazine is harder to seat than a magazine at less than full capacity. As you increase the number of rounds in the magazine you are increasing the amount of force the magazine spring is pushing up on the rounds. When you insert the magazine you must compress the spring even more to get the magazine all the way in so that the magazine lock can engage the magazine. What I'm trying to say is, slap the magazine in like you mean it. You won't break anything by slapping the bottom of the magazine with your palm. Don't just push the magazine in, slap it in. Try that and see if it does the trick.

I'll try it again, but I've been pretty forceful with it. Thanks.

....but you would think that a new Wilson mag in a Wilson pistol would be a non-issue.....as much as everyone raves about Wilson mags.
