If you have some fine grain sandpaper, smooth the inside of the feed lips.

give thegun acouple hundred rounds,before worryijng about something that as of now u have not even shot yet. Magazineis new, springs might betight and maybe you are notfamiliarwith the kahr magseither..

My defense glock 19 mag is full but when I hit the range with my G19 or my kahrs I very seldom load the magazine fully. Not worth that extra pain and anguish to me and I seem to waste alot of ammo in my G19 mag when I do that.

all springs will take some type of set, callit pre-set or what ever, but they will take a set, so new springs should be stouter out of the package.

I was told by a pro, until your mag springs are broken in don't try too hard to fill the mag. I.E., my glock is carrying 13 instead of 15 in all 3 mags. When I put the new extra strength mag spring in my mk9 elite from Wolff, I put 5 in instead of 6. It desn't take real long for the springs to break in. A
gain, this was not my idea and won't take credit if it happens to work some. It has worked well for me though.
awesome this sounds good to me what i did with my 92fs berreta that hold 15 rounds i used them red dry fire bullets and keep loading to break in clips but out of work and low on cash so thanks I'm going to do this for awhile if still not broken in after 200 rounds ill deff do sanding but like u said use less rounds i notice after loading my fith round becomes very hard to load !

I picked up my new TP45 today. I checked my magazines. One loaded normally while the other was a little tight inserting the cartridge. I used a UpLULA loader and unloader tool.

I have not loaded the tight magazine and loaded the pistol and racked the slide to unload. I'll wait and do that outside.

I have a TP 45 and al three mags are stiff but now that I have put about 400 rounds through it the mags are a little loser
