How To Waste Your Money

In a moment of stupid I paid a lot of money for a 27 round KMI magazine for my Glock 21. At the range this morning EVERY time I pulled the trigger the mag dropped into the snow. I have read that some when dropped on a harder surface will pop open and sproing the ammo all over. I guess some of the 9mm mags function ok. I would stay away from the .45 mags. I should have saved my money and purchaced some good imported beer for the nascar race tomorrow night.

Unfortunately it sounds like you've learned an expensive lesson.

Never buy KMI/promagazines lol...
Has Taurus really spent more on shipping customers their firearms back to them than actual sales?

For most guns, I'll only buy factory magazines.

Most of the cheap off brand mags I have gotten were not worth having.

The slot in the mag for the mag release might not be quite in the right place.
Compare where it is to a factory mag.
If that's the problem it can be corrected with a file or your trusty dremel.
You know you have been waiting for a good excuse to use that dremel.

I have many KMI 9 and 40 mags that work well but only carry factory mags for social work.

Eww sorry mate.

Reminds me of the stories I read on the Ruger 10/22 magazines between Ruger & the off-brand magazine. I buy factory/OEM mags only.
Training pays keep active with your firearm. It could save your life one day.
