      Taurus 24/7 9mm Long Slide Mag issue?

      I recently bought a Taurus 24/7 9mm Long Slide; about 700 rounds of of different types of JHP and FMJ though it with no problems. Truthfully, I was very pleasantly surprised...

      Anyway, I noted one bit of strangeness; both of the mags that came with it will (sometimes, 90%) release the slide when inserted when they're loaded. The factory mag that I bought does not exhibit this behavior. I kind of like that they do this... is there some safety issue that I'm missing?

      To be clear: I empty a mag, slide locks to the rear. Insert mag, slide releases and chambers round.

      Thanks for your insight.

      I can't speak for the Taurus, but my Beretta and Glock do the same thing, but you have to jam the mag in pretty hard to get it to happen.

      Long slide? Are you talking about the 24/7 OSS in 9mm?
      If so, I have one and my factory mags do not release the slide when inserted, but I can't see a safety issue with your aftermarket ones releasing the slide.

      OOOPS! Just looked it up. Looks like the 24/7 OSS before they actually released the OSS to the public. Sorry!

      Except my OSS has an ambidextrous safety and a decocker. Other than that I think its the same gun.
