I carried my hi-power today for the first time in a while. I dropped a spare mag in my coat pocket. It was a nickel-plated South African 17 rounder with 15 nickel-plated Golden Sabers in it. I got a little snow in my pocket, and later, when I pushed down on the top round, the ammo did not pop back up. It looks like there may be a little galling going on. Is there a problem with nickel-on-nickel? Is it unrealistic to expect a mag to work after it has been stowed in a coat pocket instead of a mag pouch? I have blued factory 13 round mec-gars which seem to be more forgiving of real-world conditions. Every day that goes by, I am closer to becoming a revolver guy. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
