    Mga sir,

    The slide of my Para P16 doesn't open after the last round has been fired when I use mecgar magazines.

    I had the same problem with my mecgar mags for P14.
    Many recommended that the mecgar mag spring be replaced with wolff +10% springs.

    Check/change the follower and spring first. I only use factory nickel or STI built mags for my P16. The Mecgars are almost always bad, from my experience.

    Di naman importante yun pre
    Anyways madali lang yun, di lang tumatama yung slide stop sa follower kaya ayaw mag engage
    tANGGALIN MO SLIDE AND isaksak mo yung mag and you will see if there is a gap between them
    Paayos mo kay metrillo etc if it bothers you too much

    I don't know what color it comes over there, but the blue ones I've tried are junks. They mis-align (sideways) when the mag is full and get stuck in the tube.
