    i have a glock 20 10mm. when my magazine is loaded and inserted in the gun, the ammo rattles inside. i've tried to tap the magazine from every angle and re-insert. but i still have that rattle. i've even downloaded one, two rounds and still the rattle. i know its probably no big deal, but drives me nuts. makes the gun sound cheap. any idea's/suggestions, or is that the way it is..????

    That's not uncommon with double-column magazines. Because of the way the rounds stack against each other in the mag, sometimes you'll get a round that's loose in there and has enough space to rattle.

    Try downloading it by one round & see if the rattle goes away..
    Bet it does..
    I've seen this on other double stacks before..
    There's nothing wrong..
