Cheesy mag-catch spring in my spiffy new Five-seveN was pulled loose by a bullet tip sticking out of a mag I chambered. The instant I ejected the mag, the catch and spring fell out with it, and could not be reinstalled without tools. The only way the gun could be fired was by holding the heel of the mag in by hand. To its credit, the gun still cycled flawlessly when the mag was held in with my pinky curled under the grip (just lame to shoot that way )
Was that en early model? I thought I remembering reading about that with some FiveseveNs. I have one thats been perfect but I havent shot it a whole bunch, to a reloader the 5.7x28mm ammo is expensive. And no I dont reload the 5.7x28mm round, too much work.
