938 magazine problem ?

New here, been lurking on and off. My 938 is maybe 2 months old, already been to Sig once for issues. They replaced slide, extractor, etc but failed to address another thing I think is a problem. When I load a mag and pull the slide back even an inch or so, then release the slide, if I eject the mag, the top round gets stripped and falls from the magwell to the floor. Sig says that's normal !!!! Any thoughts ?

Yes it is normal... If you remove the mag slowly you will see the top round is pushed forward. Dropping the mag quickly that top round catches and is released from the mag...I believe this is do to the changes in the magazine because of earlier feeding issues with the P238...

Fill your mags and leave them filled.......the mag springs will adjust and this will no longer be an issue after several weeks of use.

So you think it's a stiff spring?

Mine has done it from day 1. Not so bad after the spring gets broke in, but still does it.

I heard it had to do with the mag release hitting it also. Try holding the release in as you drop.
I agree and every report I heard was with new mags.
