View Full Version : G23 magazines are extremely tight……………

I use only Glock magazines in my G23. I have a 13 round & 15 round magazine and they are tight; especially the 15 rounder. I don’t want to put grease or oil on them, but getting them in the weapon and removing them is getting tougher as time goes by.

Has anyone had this problem? And if so how did you solve it? Has anyone have a suggestion on this situation?

I can use the help…..

I asked this same question over the weekend and it never got posted – so I hope this one does,

Thanks for any and all help,

Odds are you have older magazines.
The original mags are known as Non-Full Metal Lined (NFML). The current mags are known as Full Metal Lined (FML). The NFML mags will expand as they are loaded. The FML mags are surrounded with metal (and polymer), they will not expand.
I recommend you pick up some current issue mags & be done with it.
