I have had nothing but problems with this damn thing, and have replaced almost every part.. My latest replacement has been the magazine release, and now the damn thing wont release the magazines unless I loosen the screw on the grip.. wtf??!! :mad: /rant..

Any one else run into this issue with the magazine release?

Is the grip screw going all the way through the frame and pushing on the magazine?

If yes, shorten screw or add a washer.

It sounds like your grip screw is too long. Check your mag for any strange scratches (from dragging across the grip screw).

Any chance you replaced the mag release tension spring? We did and found that Browning shipped 2 by mistake and they were stuck together so we installed 2 w/o knowing it. If we loosened the screw it would release. Once we removed the duplicate spring, all is good

Hope you find it

Ended up putting the old mag release back in... I could take a file to the new release but that would defeat the purpose of me buying a new one. :(
