I purchased a new in box P-11. I really liked the size and weight although I have a problem with mine and was wondering if this is normal.

I have not shot it yet and was considering taking it back to the store. Whenever I load more than 7-8 rounds in the magazine. The bottom rounds rattle around in side of the mag.

Is this normal?

I can't walk carring the P-11 because it sounds like I have a baby rattle with me.

I am using walmart winchester white box range rounds.

Any help or feedback would be very much appreciated.

Try some Smith magazines and see if this helps.
Sometimes pressing the sides of the mag hard with the heel of your hand compresses it a tad and eliminates the rattle.

Try taking your mag. apart a couple of times

I had the same problem with all four of my magizines. I am the one that wrote turn your springs around!, maybe other members did also.
After I turned my springs around my mag. still rattled!, I then took it apart again and put it back together and it still rattled!, I then took it back apart once again leaving the spring turned around, and dont even ask me why because I do not know! but it stopped rattling period!. I can now shoot all 4 of my magizines, take them apart and clean them and put them back together and I have no more rattles period!.
I would try taking them apart and putting them back together with the spring turned around about 3 times and see if the rattle stops!. Mine did. I know this makes no sence what-so-ever but it worked for me!.
