New P10c thoughts and possible issue with mags
« on: August 10, 2017, 09:53:42 PM »
Traded my p07 urban grey for a black p10c and very happy. I shot a buddies p10c 2 weeks ago and fell in love.

Grip is more aggressive than I would like, similar to FN pistols. My girly hands will have to adjust  :)

Trigger is amazing and reset is short. Slide release on both sides aren't hard.

overall I am happy.... except for the magazines

My gun came with 3 mags and 2 got +2 extensions on them. Issue I am having is of the 3 mags 1 will not drop free, 1 will mostly drop free, and 1 shots out like a rocket ship.

The mag that doesn't drop free has no extension. When I hit the mag release and keep it held it the mag drops aprox 3/4 in down and stops. Once I take my finger off the mag release the mag drops. This has been replicated with slide closed, slide locked back and slide removed from gun.

The mag that mostly drops free seems to drop aprox 7/8in down and stops until I take my finger off the mag release. This occurs more frequently when the mag release is pushed hard and fast.

Should I attribute the issues to a new gun and should work itself out, or is there something I can do?


Mag that does not drop free


Mag that sometimes drops free


All three mags
L mag that rockets out
C mag that sometimes drops free
R mag that doesn't drop free

New P10c thoughts and possible issue with mags

Just a guess. Looking at the pic, L mag has less friction marks, kinda spotty.
   C mag has more of a narrow solid friction mark.
   R mag has a wide solid friction mark. I think the coating is just a bit thicker on the C and R mags.
   If it was mine, I'd lightly sand (1000 grit) the center and right mag where the friction marks are. Then put a coat of car polish, inside and out of all 3 mags, and buff clean.
    But.... it's weird that they drop out as soon as you release the mag release.

Yeah, like Dawg said, I'd just polish them up a bit where they are rubbing.

I'll do some polishing later, thanks for the tips.

My theory is the round hole in the mag is catching the tail of the mag release.

Look at the pic of the mags,  rub mark on side of mag below mag catch square.  remove the mag release and remove some material from the lag that is rubbing the mag. I did this on my P-10 all 4 of my mags now fly out when I push the mag release.

I have seen this on other firearms. Pushing the slide release starts the magazine falling and continued pushing binds it up a little.

Clean up a little material from  mag release a little and I think you will be good.

I have to have a visual to know where, just how my feeble mind operates  :D

Which color or colors (stole the image from a youtube video)

That looked easy. I didn't think about removing the trigger pin. It took me about 25 minutes of fussing around to get the darn mag release back together. Smoothing things up sure makes for an easier mag drop.  I would be interested in a slightly reduced spring when CGW comes up with one.

remove material from the area in RED.  I had to remove quite a bit of  material so it would not rub.

Good call Boss. Didn't even think of that. I was going the easier route rather than the best one.
   Haven't tried taking mine apart yet. Maybe this winter.

Some new info:
Shot my P10 at a local pistol match and love it.
Buddy has a P10 that has several hundred rounds through it and my mags did not drop free from his.

I will lightly sand my mags later this weekend on the front and see if they drop free and report back.
