Has anybody else here had issues with their mags? I've got a FNP-45 Tactical, and had some troubles loading to capacity and with the mag locking the slide after the last round. When I got home, I dicovered the follower had tilted over in the mag body. I disassembled the mag and cleaned it, and I hope that solves the issue. Is there a history of this? Seems kinda sketchy to rely on this weapon for anything other than a range toy with mags like this.

The mag springs are pretty hardcore. I had a hard time getting them fully loaded at first, but after loading them a few times, they are a lot easier.

I've never had any issue with the slide not locking back. If it always does that with one particular magazine, I would contact FN. I'm sure they'll swap it out.

Mope, never had the issue you described. The ONLY issue I had was several FTE's with WWB, but other than that the pistol has been flawless.

If you had a membership you could find the posts where I diagnose this about 18mo ago with pictures of the followers and pictures of a mag itself jammed outside the gun. Known problem.

They offered updated mag followers right?

They offered "updated mags", but didn't tell me on the phone what their update was.
