I agree. It looks like something like that, the magazine catches the latch on the way in instead of sliding by. The magazine goes in okay if one holds the release button down slightly which indicates that. I've been lazy in not removing the catch and taking a close look at it. Reshaping it a wee bit should do the job.

My loaded magazine slides right in and locks up tight in my LCP w/o touching the mag release.

Yep, that's what they're supposed to do. I haven't done anything about it, just lazy and have other things to do. It actually doesn't bother me, the day I have to make super fast magazine changes with that gun I'll be in real trouble.

I solved the LCP problem for me. I sold it and my LC9s because it was getting too difficult to rack the slide with my arthritic hands. I replaced them with a S&W Shield EZ. That one I can rack easily. I wish Ruger would come out with an easy-to-rack carry gun, being a Ruger fan and all. I'm down to three Ruger rifles, and two Ruger target pistols and the EZ.

Sure is the pits to get old. I sold my BMW 650 Scooter and bought a Honda Silverwing 600 scooter because the larger and heavier BMW was becoming almost impossible to put up on its center stand.

Oh well, I'm finding things like the Honda scooter and the S&W EZ to help compensate. Ain't quit riding and shooting yet.
