How much had you used the mag before the problem started to occur? Is this a new mag and it started right away? Or did this problem develop over time?
I know, I've checked all mine now on my carry guns.
That's a good question ... the gun is relatively new, have 600 round through it. I have 3 mags for it, and I rotate mags every 4 months, so Iím concluding that I never actually used this mag at the range / shot through it. I will say, definitively, thereís no way that the plastic somehow melted and crept out of that hole, or at the bottom ... that had to occur during its manufacture.
Honestly, it was a relief when I took apart the mag and saw it. Thatís a much simpler & easily remedied problem than debugging the whole gun!
Yeah, bottom line, something new to look at/confirm unfortunately when you buy new mags for a carry gun, but peace of mind when you do.
Just an odd thing, hopefully not more prevalent.
