trouble with hi power magazines

I just bought a Browning Hi Power with 2 magazines. 1 magazine is very tough to load. Is there a trick to this? Could it be an issue with the spring?

New mag? After market? Will the gun still feed?
You could take it apart and inspect.

I haven't fired it yet. I'll check youtube on how to disassemble it. Is there something to look for?

Whether you have a problem magazine or not, get a Maglula.

Load it to full capacity and let it set for a week and then repeat about 3 times. the springs will lose a little bit of the tension, but will function fine. The UPLULA loader also works great,
(www.uplula.com), there is a guy that sells them at a lot of the bigger shows, like Chantilly and York. Ask him about the demo specials, they are the ones that he uses for display at shows. they also sell a great AR-15 mag loader.

Just check for anything broken or gunked up.

Trick to High Power mags

If its not a Browning or MecGar, throw it away and don't look back.

There's nothing else to say or do.
