    PT 709 Magazine issue

    Hey all! New to the forum, Just had a quick question, I just recently picked up a 709 and have shot approx 150 rounds through it flawlessly (love this gun), however I noticed that sometimes it was difficult to put the magazine back in the gun, kinda as if it was hitting something?? Anyone else experience this ?

    Have you taken the slide off and inserted a full magazine? Does it seem to catch on anything then? Could be the magazine release/catch is out of spec. Just a thought. I don't know what else it could be catching on and is this happening with all your mags or just one?

    Ya it appears that its hitting the mag release, I dont know if this is normal as my bersa or kel tec don't do this. I am starting to see wear on the mag where it hits the release. When I push the mag in I get about have way then hit some resistance then its smooth sailing. and its both mags, I just want to ensure that I wont damage any internal parts by using some force. Thanks

    It would be OK for a little resistence, and to slap the magazine home, but it shouldn't be gouging your magazines either. If you have a good Gunsmith in your area you may want to drop by and get an opinion on whether this is normal or perhaps the magazine catch/release needs to be replaced, or smoothed out, or is just new and needs a little wearing in. Does the magazine drop freely when you depress the magazine release?

    I wouldn't say that it was gouging but you can see see the wear on the mag, and yes it drops freely.

    Sounds OK to me, but you may want to see if your magazines drop freely fully loaded as well. Although I suspect your magazine catch just needs to be worn in a little, however, I've experienced what your describing as well with one very old factory mag and some cheaply made aftermarket mags that had bulged a bit and suffered a tight fit passing the magazine catch that would not drop free fully loaded but would drop free unloaded.

    Curious as to how, no that some time has passed, if your magazine issue has gotten better or worse? I bought a PT-709 about two weeks ago, but just got to the range this morning to shoot it. I did not notice any problems with the magazine, but my large hands had some problems working the trigger at times. I think, since my finger was going waaayyy past the distal joint of the finger, I was pulling the trigger kinda sideways instead of straight back. It made is so that it did not disengage the safety in the trigger at times, I think. Other than that it ran fine for fifty rounds.
