I just loaded my two furnished mags and neither one clicks in place when i try to put it in. What am I doing wrong?

Expert's Assistant: The Gunsmith will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Gunsmith can help you best.

9mm Shield 2.0, new, never fired, straight out of the box, cleaned and lubricated.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Gunsmith should know?

Mags don't click in place.

Okay.

OK, so this is not an uncommon complaint with the Shield. I'm assuming your mags are fully loaded?

In cleaning and lubricating, how might have caused this?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What do you suggest?

I don't think cleaning had anything to do with it. Its a common complaint with the Shield.

OK, let's try a few things. Have you tried to put fewer rounds in the magazine?

No but I will.

ok, I'll stand by

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I took out two rounds and it clicked right in. Thanks will it loosen up with use? Is there something I can do to make it okay?

If that worked, then your magazine springs are a little stiff since they are new. It will break in some with repeated use, and you'll be able to fully load the mags. Shoot the heck out of that thing!
