If you have the plastic one,time is ticking fast.......Murphy's law
Date: Apr7l 26, 2020
My pistol is a older USG model ,and I guess I missed the memo about the plastic mag catch being a weak link on these models. I just kept cruising along until I got a "no fire" after the first shot of a fresh magazine . Went home ,got on the forums ,and all in my face was the answer. Most folks experience mags dropping completely out while firing, or similar. My experience was that the edge that holds the mag was wore at a bevel,causing the mag to drop out ever so slightly after a shot was fired. This created a "no mag" scenario which is a no fire. Flipped it and ran it left handed until the beefier metal catch and updated spring arrived. Was afraid the older factory mags wouldn't play well ,but they work great together. Now when the mag is pushed in it is a tight lock. Thank you FN for pointing me to MGW, and thank you MGW for super fast shipping even during this pandemic crap that is gripping the US right now. Replace that plastic catch as soon as possible if you have one. MURPHY'S LAW will bite you in the butt, when it seems fit. Dont let it be in front of a home invader or other bad guy situation.
