Hey. Just bought a used pt145. Noticed with a full mag I really have to slap it in to get it to seat. Don't have to do that with my pt111. Don't know if it is because of the heavier mag with the .45 rounds? Also, I don't have to press much on the mag release to drop it. Barley any pressure with release it. Is this normal with the pt145? I've only put about 50 rounds thru it and not had any problems but worried that in a situation I would barley hit that mag release and pop that sucker out.

Thanks.

New mags are like that. They will break in soon enough.

Yup, keep the mag fully loaded for a few days, then unload/reload magazine. Repeat a few times keeping magazine fully loaded when sitting for extended periods of time. After a few weeks, they'll be broken in and shouldn't have the problem (at least my problems went away)
