Mags said:Somebody mentioned in here that they carried thier 40c with out one in the chamber but with a loaded mag. I tried that today and it didnt work. I loaded up the magazine. Had the slide in the forward ready postion. (not open or locked).Inserted the mag, But the magazine wont lock in. The slide needs to be open and locked for the mag to catch and stay in place, so it seems. Is there a way around this? I'm new to the gun.
What gun is it? On the .45 the mags are VERY tight when they have all ten rounds. I have been loading mine up and letting them sit, hoping to losen em up. So far one has responded well, I can load all ten and load the mag with the slide closed no problem. The other I can barely get ten in the mag, using a Uplula, but no way to get it in the gun unless the slide is locked back.
If you want to carry with out a round in the chamber, maybe try it with nine rounds in the mag? If the gun is something other than the 45, maybe just try one round less than full capacity.
Hope you get it figured out, good luck!
