How to Make 10 rdrs Work in G19?

I have a pair of stock third gen G19's. In addition to my normal hicaps that work perfectly, I have three 10 rd Glock mags made about the same time as the guns (2004).

The 10 rounders work ok with RN ammo, but have consistent failures to feed with Win and Fed 115 gr JHP. Usually, about the third or fourth rd will catch on the lip at the very bottom of the feed ramp and stay jammed there. This happens with both guns and all three mags.

I tried replacing the original followers with newer ones marked "9mm 3", and then installed Wolf 10% extra power mag springs. Neither mod made any difference, the jams still happen the same as before.

Is there any way to make these darned things work? I'll be traveling to an area with mag restrictions...

BTW, both guns had a similar JHP feed problem when using hicap mags from my previous second gen G19, but it was very occasional (maybe once every 50-150 rds) and went away completely when I bought new third gen mags.

Help!

I don't know the answer to your question, but wonder if there is something wrong with those guns. If it was just one gun, that would make sense, but not 2.

I have a Kahr PM9 that gets a nosedive, and thought how much better my G26 and G17 are because it has never happened with them. I have a lot of Glock 10 rounders, for both the 26 (of course) and the 17.

The Glock design, to me, seemed to better get the bottom of the feedramp out of the way, thus eliminating the nosedive possibility, I had thought.

On my Kahr PM9, I took out Mr. Dremel to address the problem.

Too bad to hear that your pair of Glocks are mag and ammo finicky about this issue.

Has there been any change in the 10 rd G19 design, that would make new 10 rounders work better?
I don't want to turn in one set of bad mags for another bad set. Especially if I have to ship the gun also.

I have a gen 2 G19. No problems with the standard capacity magazines but since I can't replace them in California, I have neutered 10 rounders for the range. Zero problems after 500 rounds with mostly Winchester White Box 115 grain ammo and Federal FMJ, too.

Edit: my 10-rounders were purchased last year (summer 2013).
