With the two mags that came with my 24/7 pro .40 only one can I fill the 15 round magazine(with much struggle on the last round) the other I can only put 14 rounds in it, and if I try to put the last round in, I can almost fit it in, but just not quite. I don't think that I should have to put all my manly force into the last round and possibly break my mag. Anyone have the same experience, or advice???

It really should not be that difficult to get the 15th round in the mag. By hand, with my 24/7 .40 cal, yes it is a little rough on the digits to load those last couple in but they always go in. Try using a magazine loader or speed loader as some prefer to call it. If you can't get that last round in with a speed loader than you got yourself a problem. Call Taurus and they'll send you new magazines.

I think the springs are tough initially. I had the same problem, although my mags are cali 10 rounders. The 10th was a PITA! But I leave them full to hopefully relax the spring a bit. It seems to have worked. Every time I load them it seams to get easier.

I've loaded and unloaded the mag plenty of times to loosen the whole thing up.... can't get the last round in one of the mags, it's cool though, made it my backup mag. Between my mossberg 500 I just ordered and the 15+1 in my 24/7. I don't think anyone's getting past my lead veil of hell... if they do, I have a pretty wicked knife to accentuate their many gunshot wounds with.

Just want to know wheter or not I should waste my time trying to get the mag repaired???

Chances are pretty good it will get better. If not, Maglula, uplula loader is outstanding, and saves the thumbs. Cost more, but it sure as heck works, new mag, old mag, extended mag.

I have the 9mm 24/7, and it's tough for me to get #16 & #17 in also. On a good note, I'm developing some pretty good callouses on my thumbs!! ;D

Da Professor is in the house! ;) Time for some homework. In my case homely work. Cut the snickering. :rolleyes:
Here's some links that might help for first aid for those thumbs... or at least give them some rest. :)

There'll be a pop up quiz ( that's what cartridges do one at time is it not?) later. Greasing the palm ( no lube) of the Prof or superfluous flattery will get you a one grade up promotion. :rolleyes: :-\ :p :( :eek: ;D :D :) ;) Not really, but flattery will get you everywhere.... maybe. :devil: :loco: :yipee: :wave: :clap: :thumb:

Oh, yes. Filling the mags to capacity and letting them sit for a day or two can help break the springs in. Might even take three days or more. Not more than 4 or 5 anyway. There may be exceptions to that.
