Rounds rattling in P228 magazine
I just purchased a police surplus P228. It came with 2 factory magazines. The rounds in one of the mags rattle like a baby rattle when it is loaded. Curiously, the other mag does not do this. Is this normal, or could there be a problem with perhaps a weak spring in this magazine?

My P226 and P245 mags rattle sometimes. All you have to do is give a good, hard tap to the seat of the mag. Sometimes the rounds in the double-stack mags get hung up and create a little extra space. No biggie - just give it a bump from the bottom, and the rounds will seat tighter.
If that doesn't work, then yes - the spring is pretty weak. But you should be able to tell the difference when you load the mags by hand.

Congrats on your new purchase, I know you will like that gun.
I just recently bought a very used, dirty, beat up P-228. Once cleaned up it looks good, and shoots great. It came with one 10 round mag, and I purchased 3 new 15 round Mecgar mags. The old 10 rounder does rattle with the ammo in it, but none of 15er's rattle.
P.S. A good place to get mags- where I got mine -$22 each for 15 round mags. I got 3 plus Hogue rubber grips- $92 including shipping.
