Hey, all!

I've been reading these posts and following the CCP M1 issues since I've had my CCP. I have the Generation 1 issue. I did send it back for its warranty repair as soon as I got the notice of warranty. Now, this was my first ever pistol. I attributed some of its issues as "Operator Error", me not being experienced with shooting, etc.


What happened recently: i was showing my CCP to a family member. I released the mag, ejected the bullet that was in the chamber....but then all the ammo just "fell out" of the magazine!!! I was like, "What???!!"

I finally had some time this week to explore what might be the problem. I was watching some YouTube videos about magazines. One guy said if the slide does not lock, after the last round, there could be a problem with the magazine spring. This is exactly what my CCP was doing. And I often wondered if the problem was just the one magazine (I would have problems on the range at my gun club, and I'd ask the Range Officers about it).

Anyways, I took apart the magazine to inspect it. The spring was definitely bound up. And then the follower was stuck at the top. I was finally able to get the follower "free".

So, I took apart the "good" magazine. Everything looks pretty much the same. The only thing I see is, the follower that was "stuck" does seem to be a little "bent". Like if you put them both up to a straight edge, you can see what I mean. I will snap a picture to post.

Anyways, they are also stamped the Type "D" magazines. At this point, I think I'll just buy a new magazine. But I was just curious if anyone else had any issues with the magazine, magazine springs "binding" or anything like that.

Thanks.

I've had "C" and "D" magazines with my original CCP M1. Do not recall having the "binding" issue. I now have a CCP M2 and it came with "E" magazines. After I got my CCP M2, I ordered a couple extras mags from an on-line retailer (not Walther) and received "D" magazines. No binding issue with these either.

The main visual difference I see with the "E" magazine is a vertical fin was added to the plastic piece at the bottom of the spring (picture below).

Guess I would call Walther support before buying a new magazine. Maybe they would swap you with a working one?

Hey. I finally downloaded the pics. I ended up buying a new mag today. It's an E, with the fin, like you said. I dont wanna take a chance with a crappy mag. But I'll still test it on the range.

The follower on top is the one that looks odd to me. I circled the area that looks weird. The bad mag I wrote X's on.

If the part is in fact defective, the real issue is why it is defective. Is it a defect that originated in the manufacturing process or is it a defect that originated from some mechanical issue with the weapon or the magazine as a whole. The larger question is "will it happen again and how can I prevent it?". It makes no sense to own a firearm that can't be trusted to always perform as designed.
