    I have two magazines for my GB that hold 18 rounds with no issues

    I have a buddy with one magazine that will barely get 17 rounds in there

    What kind of experiences have you guys had?

    Were there different lots of Factory magazines that performed differently?

    Are you sure it's a GB mag and not the P18 mag ? , if it's a real Steyr GB mag I would say pull it apart and make sure nothing got in under the Follower in with the spring.

    It is the magazine that came with his GB. Will a P18 magazine work in a GB ?

    I do not recall it looking any different than my mags.

    I guess we need to take his and one of mine apart and see what is he difference

    Thanks for the suggestion

    I've read that you can cut a hole in a P18 mag for the GB thumb mag release and cut off the catch on the end for the P18 heel mag release so it fits in a GB and you'll have a working mag. Allegedly. But without doing that fairly significant amount of work a P18 mag won't even fit in a GB.

    As Case said it's probably some debris or something caught in the bottom of the mag, or maybe the spring was installed incorrectly somehow and isn't quite compressing all the way as it should.
