so I have the G2 DA/SA DS .40, specs says 15+1 but how come the magazine holds 14? No biggie but just wondering
Dude, after you're finished shooting, load 14 rounds in you mag and leave em for a week or two; they will break in.
A couple of my 10 round .45 ACP PT145 magazines would only hold 9 rounds when brand new.
After a week of staying loaded with 9, they all loaded 10 just fine without breaking any thumbs.
The factory one that came with my 24/7 G2 40cal broke on the first time at the range, I ordered an UpLula after consulting this forum. It works like a champ. It's what should be included instead of the pos that came withe my gun.So I take it those are far better than the factory speed loader the pistol comes with?
I was able to finally load both my mags with the full 15 rounds,More wear and tear is placed on the spring by shooting it at the range than leaving them loaded. Leaving them loaded will relax the spring, as fresh cut unused springs are always extra tight. You can also take a dowel rod or a long screwdriver and work the follower up and down about 50 times, it will loosen them up a bit by simulating loading and unloading like you're shooting. After that you should be able to get that 15th in there, if not, just leave it loaded for a few days and then give it a shot.
Won't hurt it. I keep several Magazines loaded at all times.Is it a good idea to keep a mag fully loaded 24-7
Generally, it does not affect the Spring except to wear the Spring in. Magazine Springs can be worn out by the feed cycling and I have done it! Not on 24/7's yet, but a couple of my other Pistols I shoot extensively for USPSA/IPSC Matches have gotten new/fresh Wolff Magazine Springs in their Magazines.it doesn't affect the spring.?
