Okay, finally got to go out to the range and shoot my MKA-1919 today and had a big issue with the factory 10 rnd magazines.

I would fire 1-2 rnds and the magazine would fall out of the weapon. Now being that I thought, well maybe I didn't fully seat it, I tried again and made sure I had seated it firmly. Again after firing it twice the magazine fell out. Now puzzled I tried the second 10 rnd magazine I had, same result. Again and again both of the factory mags would fall out of the magazine well within 1-2 shots. Now the factory 5 rnd mags worked flawlessly. Even the 3inch Magazine I converted using the Salem 6 extension worked fine (as long as I only put 8 shells in the mag, another issue altogether) and did not fall out. Only the 10 round mags would fall out. Anyone having this issue?

I had the same issue with one of my factory 10rd mags. I took it apart and found that the punched out hole for the magazine release was not high enough by a very small amount. The release would begin to engage the magazine but would not go in far enough to secure the mag. I simple used a small flat diamond file and filed the hole a little taller on the mag little by little until the mag release would fully engage. Took about 5 minutes. The other mag I recieved was just fine but I think the quality control could be a bit better. I've had no feed issues since I removed that small amount of material from the magazine.
I was thinking of buying the salem mag extensions for my other mags, what happens if you load more then 8 rds in them?

Had exactly the same experience with one of the two factory 10 rounders I bought. Did the same thing that eod 1 did. A few minutes with a smal flat file and the mag fits fine now. I've had no feeding problems with these mags, using Winchester target ammo.

What size (for what gun, or what part number) slip-on Limbsaver are you guys using?

I ask because when I looked at them, I saw various slip-on sizes for different guns.
