Hello,

This new build was prematurely locking back with my Tripp 8-round magazine. However, it was fine with my three Metalform Elite 8-rnd mags, as well as all 7-rnd mags I have (both tapered lips and hybrid; maybe a couple wadcutter lips in there as well come to think of it.)

Does Tripp set up higher in the magwell, or is the two-piece follower a problem?

So far I'm digging those Metalform Elites...

Regards,

Josh

As a follow-up, I fitted a 10-8 stop and have no more trouble.

The other side stop had a lot more meat where it contacts the follower. Almost looked like someone mixed up a 9mm slide stop with the .45.

I guess I should have checked things out more thoroughly before posting.

Josh
