    I just received a new 14 rd mag from CDNN. While loading it, I decided to try an extra round and it fit, snug but it fit.

    Anyone else have this happen? I did notice however that I can not insert it loaded with 15 into the M9 with a round in the chamber only will only go with 14. Still nice due to the fact that at least I don't have to chamber a round and then release the mag to add another round for 15.

    Just an FYI post I guess.

    I can put the fifteenth round in the mag, but it will not chamber, even from slidelock on an empty chamber.

    In theory, some have said that the magazines will take 15 rounds after the spring breaks in, but, I have yet to have it chamber as per what Flachef did above. I will only load 14.

    Doesn't overcompressing a spring wear it out just like overextending it?

    I would think so.

    That is why most don't recommend keeping a magazine loaded to capacity 100% of the time.
