    Default P380 Simple Mag Spring Fix

    I've ran about 400 rnds through my new P380 so far and it's such a sweet reliable little carry gun. This past weekend my Son & I shot at our indoor range and shot a 100 Rem 95 gr FMJ and ran 3 mags of my very expensive (SD) BB 80 gr Barnes through it and it ran them with only a slight glitch(no FTF FTE FTRB, no light stricks. The last couple of mags on an (Empty Mag) slide didn't lock back but to me that is very very low on the list of gun problems(I don't carry a spare mag anyway). When I got home I started to search all causes in here and studied them all, the one that worked was as simple as tweaking the mag spring(stretched from 4 1/2" to 5 1/2' and more aggressive upward follower angle. I did both mags and they lock back now each and every time. I did read where people went with the Wolff Kel-Tec P3AT 10% 79073 mag spring but really didn't read where it's a done deal. If someone here says I use them and it permanently fix the problem I'll order them. Such sweet little reliable pocket carry.

    that kel tekspring will work fine and j10% will do wonders for getting that magazinefollower up there and pushing up the slide lock lever. Your not gonna hurt a damn thing buy trying it either. I think it is a nice drop in mod. Normaly it should not be needed but again it can'thurt a damn thing. I hav eum in my jP380.

    Ur guhn is running absolutley great IMO, Most herewould killfor that performance out of the little gun that could but sometime couldn't.. Just sayin
    . My PM9 has over 40,000+ rounds through it, and runs much better than an illegal trying to get across our border
