First post, I'm not new to guns, but curious about the rattle I'm getting with a loaded mag for my .40 compact 3.8. Both mags, no matter how I put the rounds in or tap the mag to set 'em, I still get the rattle, it's like the agitator marble in a can of spray paint. Thoughts are the tension from the spring would prevent this. Function is fine, it's more annoying than anything.

Mine seem to rattle less the more I use them, try unloaded and reloading them a few times, and also tap the magazine with the heel of your palm, that has worked for me also.

Kind of a common grip, but nothing to worry about.

Only when the magazines have rounds in them, the 11rnd and 16rnd, the magazine rattles like above stated. Ya got me I'm curious to know why, but their doing it.

My Stable:

XDM9Full - Rattles w/19+0, No Rattle w/18+1
XDM9Compact - Rattles w/13+0, No Rattle w/12+1
XD9SC - Rattles w/13+0, No Rattle w/12+1
XD40SC - Rattles w/9+0, No Rattle w/8+1

So... I just load the magazine to capacity and chamber a round. And the rattle disappears. For me.
