Well, my pistol seems to jingle pretty loud with 15-10 rounds in the magazine. i noticed that i could buy shims for it, but i began thinking of easier... faster cures. i took out the full magazine and held the top bullet down with my thumb. i shook it. it jingled. i began looking into all those little holes on the sides of the mag, and i noticed that the round marked as number eight was ticking back and forth. so i took out all of the bullets and got my hammer. thats right, my hammer. i rapped the mag with just the corner of the striking face just between numbers 6 and 8, then another couple times on the other side, between 7 and 9. i put all the rounds back in the magazine. no rattle. not even a peep. so if you arent against hitting your magazine with a hammer, this seems to work pretty well. no feed problems, no nothing. just a bunch of smiley faces on my magazine.



1. locate rattle.

2. empty magazine.

3. beat it with a hammer. (like you havent wanted to do that ever since that rattle came about anyway.)

i hope that doesnt affect your little shim monopoly.

I don't know about that :? . I would think that may keep some types of ammo from feeding properly.

mag jingles are usually a result of rounds not stacking right in the mag. If properly lined up the friction between rounds will not allow for any jingling or christmas carols either for that matter.

well, it's no different from the current cure of shimming the magazine. the friction has to come from somewhere; would you rather stick a piece of sheet metal in your magazine, or compress the magazine, so it applies it's own friction?

unless you dont have a problem with the jingle. then i guess you dont have to do either.

I know it doesn't sound right, but this is done quite often with S_I magzines. Not usually to keep them from "jingling" but normally to allow them to drop free. As long as you don't make a big dent, I don't think you'll have any problems.

bet the M&P mags are just as tough as the Sigma mags I have beat with a hammer. go with the shims though imo. Sigma mags will take a big pounding with a hammer real damage is done with a pin punch in conjunction.
