Mags not feeding last (10th.) round

Hi, I've only been shooting since June 2014, and my G19 (my only gun) has recently begun to fail to feed the last round. I have 3 mags and they're all failing about 80% of the time.
I would say I have roughly 4k rounds through the gun at this point. The trigger is starting to feel really sweet
I have been running primarily 147 grain ammo, but the fail to feed happens with 115g and 124g also. It doesn't matter if it's primo new ammo or reloads.
Is this just a need for new springs, or am I missing something else?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Time for new magazine springs, I only use Wolff gun springs (military and LEO approved and contracted).

Thanks. Multi-item discount is a cool feature there.

You can also opt for +5% and +10% Wolff magazine springs, which might help give you extra strength for the last round.

Hard to believe that the mag springs are failing already. Are these 15 round mags? Have you tried cleaning the internals of the magazines?

Hmm, I must admit that it does implicate a weak magazine spring. Just difficult to understand why Glock would use a weak spring for the 10 rounders.

Only 7 in a 10 round magazine? OK, I guess there must be some spring logic there but it has sailed past me.

Well, the Wolff +10's seem to have done the trick. I have fired roughly 200 rounds through the mags and have had no failures too feed. Of course stock glock springs may have worked also, but I'll never know. Very happy for such an easy fix though.
