The round you are shooting should have nothing to do with the magazine falling out of the gun. If your 7 round magazines are working properly then call Kimber and explain the problem you're having with the 8 rounders.

already called them and explained. Their support has always been good. The only thing I can see is the spring in the 8 round mag is a little wider than the spring in the 7 round mag and it looks like the top rectangular opening in the 8 round mag the spring rubs the mag housing looking like it can cause the mag release after first round.

I fixed my 7 round mags from falling out by installing a stiffer spring in the mag release. I just happened to have a stiffer spring laying around that worked by clipping off some coils. Not sure this will work on the 8 round mags, but probably worth a try if you can find a spring.

Mine is off the Kimber as my 7 round mags would drop out. Seemed to only happen if I got a good 3 finger grip. If I just used two fingers and left my pink loose it was fine. Same even with one handed shooting. Kinda thought it was a mag release spring but Kimber said send it and thatís what I did.
