P5c Magazines Coming Loose

I bought a used P5c a while back that I only now got a chance to shoot. I found, to my dismay, that every time the slide moves forward to chamber a round, the magazine comes loose. I tried tightening the screw right near the mag release but it didn't help. Has anyone else run into this problem?

I have never had that problem, but I am a lefty, and when I shoot mine I have to be very careful to watch my grip. Since the mag release is on the left side, sometimes it will get pressed as I am shooting and the mag will drop.

The same diagnostic procedure applies to P5c.

On closer inspection, it looks like the nub that retains the magazine has worn down. You barely have to tap the mag release to release a magazine. I had an Interarms PPK that had the same problem. Now I just have to find a P5c magazine release. Someplace.
