I have a magazine that is a bit difficult to get the last couple of rounds into.

If I'm not mistaken, I think I saw someone on this forum say the best way to loosen it up is to load it up and let it sit for a while.

Is that correct?>???

Are you loading it by hand or using something like an Uplula?

I'm using an Uplula loader. And, I have to really stand on the last couple of rounds...

Many people say load it full and leave it set for a couple of weeks, it should help. Never had a magazine that difficult to load to test for myself.

Yes. I can't think what might be the issue with the loader making it difficult. Maybe binding magazine spring? Or maybe the floorplate is binding. When there is no ammo in it does the floorplate move freely?

WOW!!

I have no problem with any mag using my old uplula.
course all those 12 ounce arm curls may help as well?

It's the 9 round magazine for the Springfield I just bought. Played with it last night and again this morning. It's loading fine now. Just had to figure out how to finesse it. :)

Yes...… It was a short circuit between the operator and the machine. :)

A wise man once told me "Its not the failure that counts. It's how you deal with it and your ability to own up to it." :thumb:

Don't remember which gun or magazine it was but I had one that had an internal piece of metal on the last bit of spring and that jammed up so that I couldn't load two rounds. Once I removed the baseplate and straightened it out it worked fine.
