Exactly 3 moths to the day of ordering my EMP it arrived. Read the manual, like a good boy and attempted to engage an empty magazine. Met with significant resistance and it took a heck of a lot of force to engage the magazine. I had a buddy try and engage the mag without telling him what i had encountered and he also believed the force required was nothing he had ever experienced. called SA and rep who advised this to be "normal" for 1911s.:shock: he noted it had to be "broken in" and advised "slap" the mag in. The mags now started to show a consistent scratch along the magazine from inside the mag well where it was meeting resistance. After doing this about a dozen times the mag release screw snapped in half. It is now on its way back to SA. Anyone else have a similar experience with EMP being too tight?
