Mag drop

The 6 round mag that came with my new micro stainless Rosewood works fine. It stays in the gun until I push the mag release. The new mag I got from my Kimber dealer will drop out of the gun without pushing the mag release, it clicks in but falls out if you push on the base or dry fire the gun. It is a brand new 6 round Kimber mag. Why?

Good question and a little hard to diagnose without seeing the mag/gun. Have you tried talking with your dealer where you purchased the mag, he may just exchange it for another one.

I got three 7 round mags on E-Bay for our micros. 2 of them worked and the third on did the exact same thing, I sent it back. The seller got it back but didn't reimburse my money, E-Bay took care of that.
