Hi all!
I have a question. My p32 magazine is difficult to take out when it doesn’t have ammo in it, but jumps out when it does. I realize the weight of the ammo makes a difference.
Anyway, it has always been difficult to get out and I just figured with use it would get better but it hasn’t. And what I mean by difficult is that I have to use my thumbnail to get it out (really work at it). I don’t see it as a huge problem just a mere PITF.
Ok, so it this going to be the norm for it? Should I get another magazine?
Information and suggestion appreciated.
Tc, Cheryl

Cheryl,
When there's a round in the mag it's exerting much more force against the bottom inside of the slide, and therefore pops free. Without the round, the follower exerts little force, so it has no incentive to abandon ship!
It's likely that either your mag catch has a small burr on it somewhere, or the frame is simply catching on the mag somewhere and preventing a drop-free.
So, it's probably gonna be the norm...
'Course, you can just do what I do, and yank it out with yer teeth!!! :twisted:

I got my mags to drop free by taking the grip out of the frame & removing a little plastic from the mag well with a file. The trick is to remove just a little at a time & re-try the mag until it just slips out.

When I bought my P32 the mag was difficult to remove also. I found that there was a burr in the bottom of the mag well at the rear. I removed it with a pair of flush cutting pliers, but you could do the same with a pair of fingernail clippers if you have the same problem. the burr looked like it was a remnant of a molding sprue that just didn't get trimmed properly. After I removed it, the magazine will drop free even when empty. Disclaimer: I am not advocating that persons not trained in gunsmithing modify their own firearms.

I've found that a simple fingernail emery board works well for cleaning up the plastic grips, etc. They're like 4 for $1 at the dollar store.

Cheryl, all the info you have received from this post is good information, the cause is due to excess polymer flash on the inside of your mag well.

Hi guys thanks for the information. I inspected the mag well with sight and feel, and I found nothing. So, I looked to the obvious, my beautiful Fushia Agrip. I peeled it off and the mag just pops out. Now, I'll be in search of something to just soften up the front part of my grip (under the trigger guard).
Thanks again!
Tc, Cheryl
