Unhappy Clip falls out

I was at the range last weekend shooting my Micro 380. The clip kept falling out of the gun after about three rounds. I thought that my hand may be hitting the ejection button, but I made sure it was not and still happened. It is OEM clip. Any thoughts? I have to shoot next weekend for qualification and am afraid to use it. Which it too bad because I love the gun.

First your pistol uses a "magazine" to hold and feed ammo Not a (clip).

This is same question you posted yesterday at 5pm.

Same answer, try a different magazine, be certain it is fully seated in magwell.

Use different pistol or revolver for your CC class.

Several years ago one of our members had the same problem. I was updating my P238 with extended magazines with pinkie ledges, I shipped the standard 6-shot SIG magazines to the member. He reported his wife stopped having problems and the magazines stayed locked in place.

First step, call Yonkers. Most of the time it's a feed-lip problem, but in your case either the notch in the magazine is off center, or the engagement tab is crooked, too short or even missing.

Then try different magazines. Sig mags will fit your pistol, buy one. If you like it, buy two.

I have several Tac-Mag magazines for my UC2. I have found Wilson-Rogers compacts to be better. These are defensive pistols, they must go "bang" every time.
