FN 5Seven - Mag release spring!

Anyone out there on TFL have a bullet tip catch on the mag release spring when inserting a magazine?

A friend and I were shooting his FN 5 Seven and the top round was not seated all the way to the rear of the mag. It pulled the mag release spring out as the mag was inserted! Good thing we found the spring! It took some work to re install, but all is ok now. If it would have fallen into the snow, his FN would be down for the count, as the mag would not stay in the gun.

BE aware of this! Make sure all the ammo is tight against the back of the mag before inserting it in the gun!
