Another P-245 but....

Found the second P-245 which was on my wish list. It's brand new in box and came with extra mags--which is always nice. I'm having a minor problem with just one mag that makes a solid stop part way into the well. A healthy slap on it and it does seat just fine. It will drop out freely though. The other mags are smooth as silk. All of them are factory Sig mags. I may have missed some small thing upon a brief inspection but I cannot detect anything about the mag that would cause the problem. Again, I may have overlooked something. Any ideas? Thanks.

I'm glad I'm writing about this because at least it's a bit of a diversion from all the anti-American BS that's going on in the Washington DC kingdom (for lack of much stronger words). Folks, we're in trouble---again---and I do believe that enough is enough.

Take care. God bless America and Merry Christmas to all.

I have a 220 mag for my 245 that is the same way, awaiting an answer as well.

my 2 are buttery smooth, into the stop & light pressure to seat..
mine say 245 compact.

you said they're all the same sig mags, look att 'em real close, somethings different on the one.

Ok, I believe I've found the problem. First, all three mags are identical factory but after locking the slide back and test-inserting all the mags while looking closely into the top of the well opening I found that the one was stopping at the magazine catch. It was being stopped because the edge of the one mag corner was misformed or not indented quite enough to easily get past the catch. I'm not sure if I can safely alter that corner without doing any damage to the magazine but I'm going to try. Any ideas?

Trouble said he had the same mag problem and if he studies the mags closely he may find the same thing. I would think that this has happened to many people but I couldn't find any reference to it on the web.

Still looking for any of you who've had this little problem and did a DIY fix on the mag without doing any damage. Maybe a piece of wood inside the mag body and then use a punch and some banging?? Again, best method???

Oh, by the way, it's "Holmes", not "homes". A little education never hurts anyone. Right now I could use a little myself in reference to the above.

Looking forward to real input. Thank you all again.

Yes, a wooden dowel would work fine. Hit it lightly with a brass punch. Use light filing to fix any dings that won't come out. A Dremel tool will work, but be very careful. Filing shouldn't compromise the integrity of the magazine body. Be sure to give the worked area a good finish with fine sandpaper or polishing compound.

darth tater was the movie star in the family.
