View Full Version : Magazine wont fall freely

I installed a new trigger on my colt 1911, after I did the trigger swap the mag release is harder to press and the mag wont drop freely as it did before the swap. Any ideas?

It's more than likely the trigger bow. Remove the trigger and slide the magazine through it. If it hangs up, adjust the bow very carefully until there is no drag.

Yep, what he said.

Or just live with the problem and call it a "Glock Type" mag release....:supergrin:

Most likely the trigger bow.
I have a Wilson mag that will not drop free, it is marked. Use it
for range use only.

Hey Buzzo,.......let us know what the fix ends up being!

Brownell's sells a die to reform trigger stirrups. It is a simple fix.
