The missing part is not quite as wide as the magwell. Blue suggested a possible mod for faster mag changes, allowing a greater insertion angle, but this is not the case. The edge is smooth and glossy as if it had been molded in rather than cut

I agree that it will or should give a more solid point for mag insertion. With the cut out it seems as though a mag could slip forward during reloading.
I'll need to look at mine and see

It's modified. When I modify my guns with this frame cut, it is extremely difficult with the naked eye to tell that it did not come from factory as such. The polymers used in these plastic guns cut very smooth. I hardly sandpaper.

That reputation could get a lot of people killed. I had that same impression when I bought my G27. I think I've cleaned it maybe three or four times. I've been carrying it around all year figuring I was OK...but NO, big mistake. I recently discovered that almost every time I pull the slide back it locks in place and I actually have to slap it to get it to snap forward... Even happens when I shoot it... Its basically like carrying a T/C for SD at the moment... Thinking about all those times I carried it in that condition gives me the willies :cry: She's getting a good cleaning and lube job before I even think about carrying it again.

The irony is I'd always grab it when my FsN hadn't been cleaned since its last shooting cause I thought it'd be more reliable.

B- It REALLY doesn't look cut, but whatever. I've shown you mine... show me yours!

G- I have a bad habit of not cleaning my guns, but I do keep them lubed. Are you sure you don't just have a worn mag from so much carry?

Happens regardless of mag... so i'm guessing its mostly my fault.

Is your firing hand thumb riding up under the slide release while you pull the slide back?
