    Hey i have a slight problem i just bought a glock 30 a few days ago and one of the mags i have has a problem, when ever the mag is fully loaded the eighth round jiggles back and forth, i know its not that big of a deal, but it is annoying as hell, can i send this back to glock or is there any easy fix?

    Thanks

    Some of them do that! If you find a good fix, let me know.

    Mine does the same thing, SOMETIMES. Don't know why it does it sometimes and not others, I always seat the rounds to the back of the mag. Don't know, if you do find a fix, let us know....

    Load it up with all 10 and leave it a bit. Then it'll usually cure the rattle after a couple days.

    load 9 and 1 up, no issue.

    I always load one less than the mag capacity by loading the mag fully, seating the rounds in the mag and inserting into gun, racking a round into the chamber, take the mag out and reseat the rds, then back in the gun.

    My 9 rders get 9, then load 1 for 8 +1 in the gun.

    It saves on other issues as well in most autos. I don't caerry mags to full capacity in handguns or rifles unless it's a bolt gun.

    Even the paras/colts get the same treatment.

    The newest mags still rattle when loaded with all 10 rounds, but quiet up when you put them in the G30. A little downward pressure on the nose of the top round quiets it right up. The rattle doesn't bother me since it's quiet in the gun.
