View Full Version : Px4 Storm full mag = no bueno?

With a magazine to its 10 round capacity, it is impossible to put it into the weapon without considerable force. This worries me, as every other pistol I've shot has had no problem with placing full cap mags into the weapon. Any insight? Just new mags do this or what?

Thank you.

New mags... the springs will relax a little bit. When I first bought mine I couldn't put more than 8 in without the loader... Now I can put 10 in easy. Just load a mag full and leave it be for a few days. I wouldn't recommend loading the 10+1 to store it for a HD purpose. The spring deformed the top round. Congrats on buying one of the most accurate handguns available.:D

load it and unload it over and over, let the spring wear in a bit. It will be good to go in now time.

The next sentence says that it deformed the bullet.
I had a Hornady Critical Defense round, 10 in the mag, loaded and the pressure of the round against the bottom of the slide resulted in a less than round bullet;). I wish I had kept it to post a pic.

I've never had a problem with my mags or the rounds that I keep in them.

Shooting it is the best way to do this :D

I was searching for px4's as I'm in the market for a 9mm and saw this thread. I obviously don't have a px4 but when I bought my xd45 brand new I had the same problem. The springs break in and it gets easier. I'm 650 rnds in and it's breaking in easy.

Its a good thing.....

Good, tight springs = very positive feeding.

Spring is fresh and new, and the blocking method they use is excessively tight. (I.E. it's almost like they sized it for 9.8 rounds instead of 10, on the offchance you might cram one in after the 10th... my old ones are closer to a 10.5, which still thoroughly denies the 11th, yet allows freedom of movement).

Once you work the springs a bit, it'll be easier to get the 10th in and to send the magazine home.
