This one won't drop even when full...just seems thick but no signs of wear from being tight..also when you hit the release button it barely moves and stays in the mag well.

the feed lip on some of mine after firing so much did the same.

I took apart my xd, and found where it was tight, and slightly bent it. They now all drop free when empty, and still fire fine.

I just found one of mine that has become a bit too snug and one of my wifes did it in the past. After using a machinist square on it and doing some measurments, I found that it was ever so slightly our of square. I used a bar clamp on it to re square it and they seem to be just fine now. I sure wish some company would make stiffer and more resilient mags for us. See my flimsy mag post for another solution.
