European American Armory 15 + 1 Round 10MM Pistol w/Steel Fr 
by David L
Date Added: Wednesday 08 December, 2010
Update: Well, the Grams 12 coil spring from Henning didn’t make any difference but it was much sturdier and straighter than the factory one and fit the magazine better and having the follower attached to the spring makes the mag easier to work with. In my opinion, the problem is with the Tanfoglio 15rd 10mm mag body. The nose of the rounds start to rub up against the inside of the mag as they near the top and yet the cartridge base is all the way back and the OAL is to spec. This makes rounds point low and hit too low on the pistol’s feed ramp (and that’s saying a lot because it’s a long ramp.) but also I’ve seen the case mouths (uncrimped) catch on the high, straight mag lip and stop the cartridge right in its’ tracks.
So I decided to grind a shallow U-shape on the lip of the mag (about 3/16ths of an inch deep at the center) like you see on some other pistol mags. It worked. It gave the cartridges time to tip up just before they came on deck and the case mouths don’t come in contact with the now missing straight edge. The bullet noses hit on the bottom half of the ramp but fed without any problems. I’ve only put two mag-fulls (15 rds. ea) successfully through for now but I’m optimistic.
I use the UpLULA Universal Pistol Mag Loader the guy at the local gunshop/indoor range talked me into. It was a little pricey and kind of a puzzle at first (not the first time I felt foolish at a range) but once you get the hang of it, it’s great. The last two rounds (14&15 or is it 1&2?) still have to be pressed in a lot harder than the rest but it don’t hurt with this loader. So for now I’ll just wing it with the one mag and see what my next step will be for a couple more mags.
