1st time loading PK380.

I was just getting the Gf familiar with her new PK380.I was walking her through the loading the chamber with an empty mag.

I put a mag in and racked the slide...does this one require ammo in it to slide forward or am I missing something obvious?

You can't let the slide go forward with the mag in.

Not if the mag is empty. You have to drop the mag and then pull on the slide to get it to snap back.

That's what I'm asking I think.The mag was empty and the slide would not go forward....if the mag was loaded will the slide go forward after racking a round or does the mag still have to be dropped?

I'm sure I'm over thinking this.

If there is a round in the mag just rack the slide back it will go forward on its own.

the magazine follower is holding up the slide latch, either depress the follower with a round or snap-cap, or remove the magazine.

I watched a vid of it last night and saw it was normal.

I haven't fired it yet so I'm not loading in the house right now.Plus, I had to teach the gf how it all worked.....didn't want to have a hot gun in the house without trust in it.

That's what snap-caps are for

The slide is supposed to stay open on the last round - so you know it is empty. That's why when you have the empty mag in it, it doesn't want to close.

Yes, with rounds still in the magazine, it will close for each shot. All semi autos pretty much work that way.

Put about 150 rounds through her today...had several FTF.S&B FMJ.

This happened to my Gf 5 times and me once.Not sure what this was all about.I did have some other ammo but didn't think to swap it out and see if that helped.

My new XD40sc had no issue whatsoever.

The little Pk was a blast to shoot though.You could do this all day.
