I received and installed my +1 magazine extension today. I can load 7 rounds into the mag, but it will not seat into the pistol. If I only load 6 rounds, it seats. Did I screw something up or do I just need to give the spring time to break in? 2nd gen KT P3AT.

Mine did the same thing. I has to cut 1 1/2 links off the spring, sand down the base of the follower about 1/32-1/16, and sand the sides of the follower just enough for it to move freely in the mag. Each one takes a little fitting to get it to work. Hope this helps.

It wasn't necessary to custom fit my +1 ext. For kicks and grins I'd take the mag back apart and reassemble again. Clean and lube the spring, and make sure the base attaches correctly per the installation instructions.

Ok. I took it apart, cleaned and lubricated the spring, reassembled. Same problem. I think I will call KT before I start cutting the spring. Any other ideas? Did I just get a bad one?

Got the replacement extension in today. It worked just like it was supposed to with zero modifications. I guess it wasn't me after all. Thanks for the suggestions though.
