Probably because you're loading them into a clip instead of a magazine. :-)

But in all seriousness, it's common among 40cal magazines. It's simply a round or two that is loose due to the geometry of the stack and the spring pressure. It's normal, nothing to worry about. It will go away when you insert it into the pistol.

It's not just SD's. It's common among 40cal mags. My M&P40 full size does it too, until I insert it into the gun.

as already stated it's common with .40s. I have the SD and a Springfield XD .40 both make the noise. Nothing to worry about.

My Sigma does the same thing. It's not a problem it's a characteristic!

I just bought a SD40 yesterday, the mag noise is a little annoying for sure. Is this something that you just got to live with or will it go away after the mags are used?
