    Default Magazine dumps rounds

    Is there any cure for Kahr mags dumping rounds in a spare mag carrier. I lose rounds with both K and MK series mags. This occurs whether using horizontal or vertical mag carriers.

    You can tweak the feed lips just a bit. Narrow the opening just a bit.

    Haven't heard of this in a long time. Someone here I think it was Ripley made a nifty little tool for bending the feed lips.

    Just a notch in a straight piece of metal to put over the lip. Doesn't take much.

    Should be a thread about it around here, I'll see if I can find it.

    Guess Ripley did something else, I know it was like a Ripley Retractor????

    JG Rider came up with this cure.

    The following have helped me with regards to losing rounds from spare magazines:
    1. all of the 6 round magazines I carry for my MK9 have Kahr's early production all metal follower in them.
    2. the rest of my 9mm magazines have either a modified Kahr plastic follower ( http://www.kahrtalk.com/showthread.p...t-modification ) or Lakeline LLC all metal follower ( https://lakelinellc.com/shop/metal-m...-for-9mm-kahr/ )

    I've only found the Kahr metal follower in early production MK9 magazines.
    The modified plastic Kahr followers work (YMMV), but I recommend the metal Lakeline follower because of it's quality.

    Regards,
    Greg

    Here's something else I did on both our K9s and PM9s.mags. Haven't had a problem in about a year. As you push a round into the mag lips there's a distinct click at the back. Tested this mod by dropping the mags onto a concrete floor until I cracked a base plate. Also what I did to the mag carriers back then was to moisten them in water and form the bottoms to a round shape so the top round butts is held in place.
