C9 magazine...is this normal?

    So far, I'm happy with my C9. I don't even find it ugly. :p
    I don't mind the weight, either.

    What I find a little odd is the amount of force I have to use to properly seat the magazine. I have to give it a pretty good smack to make sure it's secured...a lot more than what I'm used to for my Colt .380 and somewhat more than I expected. It's true of both the 8 round and 10 round magazines.

    Is it just the nature of this particular beast?
    If it's normal...fine. I'll get used to it.

    Just curious.

    My JCP is like that. Pretty good amount of spring getting it in there.

  3. My C9 only requires slight thumb pressure, and the mag clicks into place..
