Hey guys. I'm so new here, and all too happy to be a member of the "Walther Club". Just bought my new P99 AS. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I'm falling more and more in love with every day.
HOWEVER, I've noticed something about mine that is kind of aggravating: rounds in my mags rattle!
I load a full 15 round mag in my pistol and chamber a round (leaving 14 in the mag) and, from what I can tell, the bottom two rounds are rattling around like it's a morracca!!
The rattle continues until you cycle 3 rounds out leaving 11 in the mag.
YES, these are genuine factory mags; I've got 6 mags, and they all do this. Sometimes they rattle when they're full and not in the pistol.
It's so noisy I wouldn't DARE take it as a sidearm if I had to "snoop-and-poop". Not a very tactical feature.
I have had other pistols of mine in the past do this, but only after carrying them around for a few days, and all I had to do was eject the mag and tap the mag down on something hard to seat the rounds. This doesn't work on my Walther mags.
I've contacted S&W/Walther about this, and they haven't heard any complaints on this matter. How about you guys?
