Has anyone who uses the Shield had an issue with the Magazine dropping while firing? I've contacted Smith and they sent me a new assembly and Spring but it did not alleviate the problem. It seems I am touching the " Button ", while firing and I feel a stronger Spring would cure it. Anyone else have this issue?

I've taken my 9mm out several times and my 45 once. Neither one has done this with me.

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

I'm sure it's a me issue but I would like a stiffer spring for the release.

Hi Badge,

I have two of them, both in 9mm. I have not had this problem.


If my only choice was a loaded .25 or an unloaded .45, I would choose the empty .45. They both have the same stopping power, but the empty 1911 looks a lot more convincing and makes a better club.

Could it be your grip, maybe making contact with the release? I did have one left-handed guy at the store who was pushing in on his release with his 'regular' grip; we figured out a slight change in his trigger finger, and solved the problem---but I don't think his was a Shield. Ace

First round? A holster issue? I've had the problem with more than one small pocket pistol.

Funny, I sold my brother a Kahr when I got my Shield, and he had that problem with it. Had to be his hold, nobody else had the problem, but he dropped the mag every time he shot it. He sold it and got a Shield, problem solved! Further proof that we need to see what works for US, eh?

Ace, Jle, Old Dog,.... your all very insightful. Yep,.. it's definitely me hitting it. I am trying to be more self aware but for the moment it is not being carried and may be replaced as I cannot have that situation occur under stress needless to say. Not the first round or last,.... just depends on when my grip must slide up. I have to keep working on it.

Discovered a company named NDC that makes many things including finger extensions for Shields Magazines. I ordered one to try and see if it negates the weapons rise during rapid firing and my engaging the Magazine Release. I know this is my issue and not the weapons but it is disconcerting. Keep you posted.
