Hemi,

remember that not all FsN's are created equal. Mine took much more work than the majority of the others, here.

Patience wins every time. :)

Thank you blueorison... Yeah, I remember when I used to be a shop welder & some customers would watch & keep saying; "Aren't you done yet, aren't you done yet", on & on. Finally I'd get tired of hearing it so I'd just say; "Yep, it's done". They'd look at their 'job' & say; "it doesn't look done". And I'd say; "Then why'd you ask?"...

Got mine back today. My only complaint so far seems to be that the mags don't eject very well at all now that the disconnect is gone. Has anyone or EA modified the mag disconnect to just be long enough to put pressure on the magazine, but not interfere with the trigger bar? Otherwise really impressed. I can spot the polished and lapped parts, and the trigger lost at least 2lbs :)

My mags still eject forcefully, I see no difference in that sense.

Mine aren't as forceful as they were unless there is still a round or two in the mag. However, I've never had a problem dropping the mag - empty or loaded.

Could be just my gun, but I recall it being able originally to drop the promag(30rder)I have on slide lock. Now it doesn't seem to want to. I have one factory 20rounder, that If I slam home, it seems to go alittle above where it needs to be, and the mag lock engages, but doesn't click, and the mag sits there from tension on the release.. I inspected my release and it didn't look that worn.

Other than that, I can't wait to fire it hopefully tomorrow.

Some do some don't. It comes down to a mass produced frame. Send me all your mags and I will work them over.

Hey Buffman, from what you are saying, it makes it sound like the 20-rounder overshoots the catch? How is it possible if it goes above where it needs to be and not "click" on the mag release? Could you explain more? Thanks.

That's what it seems like it's doing. If I get time tonight, I'll take a video. There is some up and down movement of the magazines (evident by the slight gap between the grip and magazine), and this particular one can be pushed up higher on slide lock, and there's no lockin of the mag release, but the mag just sits there .

That means the mag catch is not catching at all on the mag as it goes up, and the mag overshoots it. That is very odd.

Because I don't remember that EA modifies anything on the magazine release...

I'm sure the issue will be worked out, seems really simple. Can you confirm that the mag indent on your magazine is the same for the rest of the mags that work properly?

If you have a polymer release it might be showing some wear.

Buffman, I couldn't really tell which ones were the problem magazines.

They all seemed to drop free besides the Promag (I don't like anything Promag, sidenote).

Can you just do a video with the problem mags and do a close-up showing which ones have their indents on the magazines slide up past the mag catch without catching?

And which ones aren't drop free?

Sorry for the trouble I saw you use many mags really quickly and didn't get a solid picture.

Yeah sorry. Camerawoman was being impatient. Originally I only noticed the first one I show in the video to go up past what it felt like it should. I had another at the range do the same thing when I shot Pro IIs. It didn't lock the slide back, and then it didn't drop free. I stopped using that one yesterday, and then put 150 rounds through it. When I got home the one with the Pro II's still didn't drop free, but the one with the S4 now does.

I mainly was just wondering if those internal mold lines should be that pronounced.
