    I have been noticing that the mag is released sometimes.
    I guess it is because the button is pressing against the leather side of the holster, since the button protrudes quite a bit, do you think I can have the button milled off a bit?

    That is the reason I gave up on the Colt Mustang years ago. The mag was always popping out in my pocket. Rather than milling off the mag button, try a stronger spring. The quick, easy fix is to use a leather punch to 'nibble' a hole in the holster where the mag button touches.

    Interesting, never had a that problem, and I've been pocket carrying mine several times a week for a year now.

    Ally pocket carry guns will do that from time to time.

    We have not experienced this issue with our P238, and we often carry it in a cheap pocket holster. The button could be milled down a bit.

    We trudge on.
