Angry Bodyguard 380 magazzine problems

I bot a BG 380on October 2014. The problem is tha if I go to the range and shoot 50 round the follower on the mag gets stuckand it wont feed.

I have to dissasemble the mag,clean it to continue shooting. I have never had this problem with any of my other guns.

Anyone with this problem??

Not to insult, but is the spring in properly?

Another question; do you take the mags apart and clean them after every range session?

I've been through hundreds of rounds with different mags in my BG380 and never had an issue. The followers are anti-tilt so probably not that. Get a pencil or something and run the follower down and see if there's any binding and check the spring orientation as mentioned above.

Default BG 380 Magazine Problems

I might measure the followers on the magazines and see if the one is slightly oversize or has a burr on it. I might use a sheet of fine sand paper to reduce the size .001-.004. It might make a difference. The other thing that you could do is return the mag to S & W and see if they will swap you one.
