Like some other TRP owners I have experienced the issue with the Wilson magazines and the failure to lock back the slide. Has anyone resolved this issue other than switching magazines? I have tried switching the slide release with a Nighthawk Custom slide release, didn't help any and actually felt like it was more difficult to move the release. The only other option that I have thought of, or heard of, is replacing the plunger tube spring, will try that one tomorrow if possible. So anyone out there found a solution?

my TRP dislikes Wilson and McCormicks from feeding to lock backs..selling them off and buying ShootStar mags only.
between some bad reloads bought from an aquaintance and missfeeds from mags in both my kimbers and my TRP, I give up..back to basics for me..

Had the same problem with my trp, switched to the ed brown hard core slide stop. This solved the problem...

Sometimes a mag follower & a slide lock just don't like each other. No real fault of one or the other, it's just that they didn't mate from an engineering perspective.

Find mags that work, leave the OEM stop in & never look back, IMO.
