    I recently bought two 7 round mags from MidwayUSA for my CW45. On the 7th round with both mags I get FTEs. This happens everytime with the casing jamming between the ejection cut out on the slide and the mag. I eject the magazine and the casing falls right out. This never happens with the 6 round mag that came with the gun. The round count on this gun is 250 rounds. First 100 were with the 6 round mag and it ran perfect. Only had problems with the 7 round mags and always on the 7th round.

    Anyone else had these issues? Any suggestions? :dunno:

    I remember reading that the 7 rounders for the PM9 had issues. Don't know of a fix.

    Here's a thread about possible issues with the CW45, some issues which may be shared by other models. I don't know if there's any mention in there about FTE's caused by a magazine though.
