I am using my P99 Titanium .40 for IPSC Production division. The gun itself works quite well. I put close to 2000 rounds through it at this point, no failures.

Reloads is what I dread with this gun. When you go through a stage, rarely there is a chance to reload with an open slide, in most cases it is done with a closed slide and a round in the chamber. I find it to be a real pain inserting mags with all 10 rounds in and slide closed. In fact, a plastic buttplate on a mag broke off last Saturday when I hit it with a palm of my left hand!!! And these are the original MecGar $40 mags!

The effort to insert and lock in a mag becomes bearable when you have 8 rounds or less in it. I never needed to apply that much power to insert mags into my Glock 17. What's the difference? Are the springs going to relax one day?
Should I store the mags full for a while?

What is your experience?

Cheers.

had my 40cal P99 QA for almost a year now. Had the same problem before w/ my 12rnd mags that came with the gun. Yes it's legal here in the Philippines to have more than 10rnds mags. I always keep the mags fully loaded w/ 12 rnds in my safe. Now, it's eassier to insert the mags full. And no, i have never experienced any FTF w/ those mags... ever.

Lots of people have been having problems with the oem floorplates breaking in the .40 cal mags. I'd call for extras (free) to have on hand.

Many makers 10-round magazines exhibit the same problem. They have to be made with any error on the short side so that 11 couldn't possibly be inserted. I consider 10-round magazines 9-round magazines and never have any problem. Just an irritating side effect of the brady bill.
