Tried to load my new BT380 and found the magazine spring very stiff.Couldn't get more than 3 in it.What's the problem?
It's new that's the problem. Just put as many as you can in the mag and let it site add rounds to it when you can. Over time the spring will loosen up.Tried to load my new BT380 and found the magazine spring very stiff.Couldn't get more than 3 in it.What's the problem?
Thank you,I will try the suggestions.I disagree with the other posters. Of the 4 Thunder 380 mags I have owned (three 7-round, one 9-round) I have had no problem loading them to full capacity with just my fingers, even when they were brand new.
I suggest disassembling the mag and making sure the spring is in the right direction, that there are no burrs or other obstructions inside the mag, and that the follower is also smooth and free of burrs.
It shouldn't be doing that.
So was my XD. I could git them all in but it was hard.No...springs are just new. Glock mags are the same way...I just load in as many as I can,
adding more when I can...then leave the mag loaded. BTW...I always buy more mags, having
four mags for every pistol I own...and I own twenty four last count !! One is not enough, especially
if you carry concealed. Just my 2 cents...
Best invention since sliced bread. I have the regular size one and use it for 380, 9mm, 40 & 45. It works great.
