Ugh.... 6 round equals pita...

For the longest time, couldn't find my flush mount Sig P938 6 round mag. I think today I know why I couldn't find it and purposely buried it.

So I find it and commence to load it up as a spare. I can only get 5 rounds in. Took it apart, cleaned it, bleeding cuticles, etc. But that last round will not go...

Am I the only one that wants to smash it with a hammer or?

I experienced the same thing with my then new P938. Those mags get easier to load over time, but for the "right now", I'll just say that an Uplula loader will be your friend.

Yep, can't find that either. Ever since I moved to Tenn, it has been a treasure hunt. lol

Load all six. Leave it sit. At least it will allow the spring to take a set.

I see the Uplula's offered in many places online, but here's where mine came from:

If you plan on loading mostly single-stack magazines, I'd suggest also the Uplula single stack adapter, as it makes the job a snap and fast too.

Phil above is right too...when new, my mags sit for a full week, fully loaded to give the spring a set. Most mfgr's suggest doing so also.

I have all the loaders. Iíll find them eventually. In the mean time, a big rubber mallet will suffice.

5 ...6 rounds??? HAHAHA!! You should have seen me trying to hand load my 32 round, 9mm, TAVOR/Colt mags. The cussing started around 15 … the screaming started about round 20 … I didn't make it to 32. Brutal, simply brutal.

I now have the Uplula mag loader … I no longer want to throw mags around the room. I don't know who invented this thing but I want to put them on my Xmas card list.

I lost one of my 938 6 rounders a while back. I was dumping my old couch and it fell out while I was taking the couch out of the truck bed. I was glad I retrieved my 6 hollow points.
