Angry New Micro 9, crimson trace loading extra rounds

I bought my micro 9 crimson trace probably a year and half ago. I have not shot it AT ALL because when I load a round, and if I begin to unload and drop the clip, several rounds fall out of the gun (the clip expelled them when I loaded the first round in the chamber) and there is a round in the chamber. I won't shoot it if it's not functioning as it should so literally feel like I wasted $750 + on a hand gun that may or may not function or may be dangerous to shoot.

Mine has done that if I drop the mag after chambering a round. Don't drop the mag. If I start firing, mine feeds the rest of the mag without any problems.

Same for me. The pistol fires perfectly don't worry about it.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee.

Load 1 round in magazine (not clip) insert mag, sling shot round into chamber, engage safety, drop empty mag, load mag to 6-7 max rounds (however many it holds) insert fully loaded magazine. Ready to go!

Force of habit and a bit of superstition, but I always slap the back of the loaded magazine against my open left palm.

Nothing has ever jammed or dropped a round, so maybe it works.

I always hit my loaded mags against my palm to align the rounds, but it makes no difference with my Micro 9. Rounds still fall loose if I drop the mag. after chambering a round. So I just don't drop it, I just fire away.

...like Tourist said "knock" the magazines.
I'd also toss in there that it sounds like the lips of the magazine may have gotten some lube on them. The cartridges are held in by friction, magazines are not intended to be lubed. If you clean your magazines well with alcohol it may fix your problem?

In my case, it is a Micro 9 issue. No lube on the mags and I always slap my loaded mags to align the rounds. It only occurs with this one pistol. So I don't worry about it, leave the mag in, and it cycles perfectly.
