    I have a C9 comp. I have had a problem ever since it was new. Wondering if it is a problem or if it was normal. Here is the problem... When I load the mag and rack it, it locks open as if it's empty. When I lock it open, load the mag and release it is fine. So is it normal that it locks open like that?

    It's been covered here before but I doubt anybody can find it.
    Now this is not my solution, I've just read it on the forum.
    Your last round hold open tab is actuated by the mag or the top round in the mag
    Iirc you can see if if you load a mag with the slide removed.
    Others will chime in with more useful info.

    You probably need to tweak the mag lips slightly away from the left side.

    Buy another mag (you know you want one:p) and see if it works right, I bet it does.

    You can also get in and carefully, gently, bend or grind on the LRHO to make it clear better. But you can screw it up that way too, so be really sure about your ability and how things work before attempting that.
