Come on ya know ya chuckled ! ! That was good stuff !
.
For your thought
Are all 3mags the same capacity ! !
and all the same MGF :)
all the same shape on top ?
Any marks on the bad one the others don't have ?
IF marks ...... do they correspond to anything on bottom of or rails of
slide ?

Others will give you some more leads shortly, . . . . . The elephant indicates he needs to go outside ?:D

Do you shoot these mags in the same order?
Ex; Load all three, then shoot them as marked (one, two, three).


If this is the case, your shooting technique while shooting the 3 mag group could be the issue, or you may have conditioned yourself to "know" you inserted the "bad mag" and get "slappy" with the trigger.


My suggestion, cover the mag numbers with tape (so you don't see the numbers, and therefore don't "know" when the bad mag is in) then load/shoot each mag individually, several times in succession. Does one still shoot low/left?


That's all I can think of.

All 3 are Walther pk380 mags. Brand new. Do not look damaged or different. Load and shot randomly. Then isolated bad mag. Shoots low and left.

only way i can think of how it effecting it ...is if mag is somehow rubbing
the slide and tilting it as it goes by. OR what do the shell casings shot from
that mag look like before being fired and after? And scrap marks ?????
But then lock up take most of that out of the equation ? ?

check the height of the bad dog against the others, empty and loaded
these are all the same capacity . . . right ?

not to be too humerous . . . . are you right handed or left ?:rolleyes:

How have you determined this? Off hand shooting or very careful shooting of a supported pistol from a solid rest? 21' should be enough distance to tell the tale. I'm at a loss to guess how a magazine could effect the point of impact. If one mag had an extended bottom and the others didn't then your grip might be different but if the mags are all exactly the same....seems a chambered round is a chambered round. Magazine plays no part during firing that I can think of. 1917
