sig mag problem

I recently bought a used sig 229 in 40, it came with 4 sig mags. My problem is only one out of 4 doesn't rattle when fully loaded. There all 12 rd. The other three rattle so bad you can here em in my iwb holster when I walk. You can smack. Em and it stops the rattle for a while but soon comes back. Is there anything I can do or a after market mag that's better. They all seem to cycle great just rattle. Thanks for the help.

if they don't say mecgar, may be the problem.

Sounds like the mag springs may be starting to get a little weak. If you bought the gun used they may need to be replaced. A slight rattle isn't uncommon, but if you can hear them when you walk that's too much.

I have a couple checkmate magazines, and there is pronounced rattle. All my other mec-gar magazines are silent. The rattle is definitely frustrating.

FYI, if they're factory mags they won't say the brand on there, just "SIG Sauer", but Mec-Gars are stamped "Made in Italy." Checkmate mags will be stamped Made in the USA. If they're not stamped "Made in Italy," I'd get new mags.

all the mags say on the front,j.p sauer & son gmbh has a serial number and says germany. then it says restricted law enforcement/govt use only.
On the back of the mags its has a small circle which looks like 3 s's in it. None of the mags say where there made, all have a plastic floor plate

Ah, ok. Those are probably pretty old then. May just need new mag springs then.
