NOTE: Magazines equipped with the MAX spring will feel stiff for the first few times they are loaded and will initially require more pressure to seat in the gun. For best results load and unload your magazines a few times prior to your first range session and keep them fully loaded for a few days prior to first use if possible. This will allow your MAX spring to take a set at the optimum rating for a lifetime of service use.
