Loaded mag?
My G21 was like that when I got it.. With having a fully loaded mag, the slide in the forward position. It was a little tough to put in. I've shot a few hundred rounds and I don't have that issue anymore. I would think its just bc it's a new gun.
I still ha e to press a little harder but not as much. Now with the slide back, it just goes right in. I always keep one chambered so when I go to load it most of the time my slide is in the rear position anyway.

Ditto on the new mag spring. You might drop a round out of the mag & try it that way. Just to reassure yourself that is is just a tight spring. With one round out it should have a different feel, & snap in a bit easier.

My 30 still does that. Everyone that owns one will tell you its probably the most pain in the ass to pop the mag in, and that first rack is a bit tough too. But the gun overcomes that one flaw in all other aspects. I carry condition 1 so I'm not fighting the mag and rack anyway when I need it.

Hmm, just read this thread on the G30 (my daily carry) and finally tried to "force" the full 10 rounds in the magazine.

I don't think I'll be doing that again.

Very hard to get the last bullet in, but it went.

Very difficult to get the first bullet to go into battery!

Finally decided that 8 or 9 in the mag and one in the pipe is still the best way to go. I've never had a problem with it loaded like that.

Just returned from front sight training with fellow upsers. J wilder, t keating, j stanfield, and others. Instructors recommend not fully loading magazines. A couple people there that did when required to do tactical reload didn't get the mag seated and it fell to the ground. Oops.

Enjoying retirement I hope?

so when loading mags would it be best to load 1 or 2 shy.

Yes, retirement is most excellent. I can heartily recommend it!

Most of my shooting now is IDPA. We get a weekly shoot out of it so I'm a happy camper!

Didn't know Wilder. Keating was a 100% standup guy. I'll keep my Stanfield comments to myself because I'm a country gentleman.

I alternate the G30 and G34 at the IDPA shoots.

Say hello to any and all who won't turn colors when they hear my name again!!

Wrong thread?!

When considering the mag fully loaded, you can still +1 manually before inserting the mag. May or may not have a battery issue when loading the first round from the mag after shooting the +1. A trip to the range will solve that unknown, and if all works out you have one more round! Many people consider that a psychological advantage.

All my Glock Mags I can load and run fully loaded with out any problems. Now when The AWB was passed there weren't very many G21 13 round mags out there and Gun Stores were charging $100.00 a Mag I was able to find some aftermarket mags for $19.99 a Mag and snagged up all they had which was 5 or 6 of them. Now they have problems being loaded up to the full 15 round capacity (+2 ext came with it) But it seems to not like more than 13 in them and that goes for all 5 or 6 of them. But yeah you need to check out all the mags you have and make sure what they will work with. BTW I try to use nothing but my After Market Mags for most of my range time as I want to keep my Glock Mags in like new shape for as long as I can.
