In December 2018, I purchased a new P365. (Manufactured the same month.)

With one in the chamber, I find that my 12 round magazine, with 12 rounds, is difficult to "click" into position. My colleague has the same gun/mag and experiences the same issue. The last 1/4" insert has resistance that will not allow for a quick magazine exchange, without a real struggle to "click" in. For 30 years, daily, I have toted a gun on my hip. (Beretta 92F, Smith 38 Special, P228, P229, P230, Glock 19, Glock 19M) I have never felt this type of resistance in any gun. (Obviously not the 38 Special :)

My standard 10 round and 10 round extended lip magazines, with one in the chamber and loaded with 10 rounds, do not experience this resistance. When I load with 11 rounds, in the 12 round magazine, it clicks perfectly, exactly like the 10 rounders. Obviously, the last round is holding the magazine off from a smooth "click" transition.

I am using Federal Premium LE 147 HST.

Has anyone else experienced this with the 12 round magazine?

Thanks!

Yep, you are far from alone with this experience, been there myself - and it has been discussed and noted in some other threads as well. My personal experience has been that the mags (12 and 10 rd) do break in after some use and keeping them loaded to capacity for a while. But at first, the 12's in particular require a pretty solid slap with your loading hand to insure they seat with 1 in chamber - not a bad practice to get in to anyway. So I say load'em and shoot'em.

I appreciate the feedback. Good to know that I don't have a bad 12 round magazine. Thanks!

Just curious if slamming home a 12 round magazine in order to get it to seat has a chance of breaking the ejector on a P365?

I would think that if the slide is locked back, there is more of a risk of breaking the ejector when slamming home a magazine (12 round especially)?

I would like to hear anybody's thoughts on this, or if someone can comfirm that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to SIGTalk!

Just curious the mechanics you see in play that would lead to this breakage?

With the slide locked back, you do not need to slam the magazine home. With the slide in the forward position, the top round will just pushes up against the bottom of the slide (will not damage the ejector). Please correct me if I am wrong.
