    Kimber 9MM Mags

    I have a question about Kimber 9MM mags. Why does the bullet nose dive into the mag when you try to hand strip a full 9 round mag? It also happens with Wilson,Milcormick mags and every 9MM mag that Iíve tried. Is this something that all 9MM mags do? It seems that they all work fine in the gun, but not when you strip by hand. I have a Kimber Pro Carry II which shouldnít matter as it is when Iím stripping the mag by hand.

    Pretty much yes, in a fully loaded mag, until you’ve got the first couple of rounds out. It’s even harder to do in the 10 round mags.
