    :mad: I only fucked with it for about 10 minutes before I had to give up and go to work. Trying to keep the spring compressed while you slide on the Pearce is a bitch! Am I doing it wrong? :o :o :o

    Does it fit with the spring out of the mag? Maybe you got a defective one, or it has a burr or something.

    It fits fine with the spring out of the mag :hs: I thought the same thing after 5 minutes of fucking with it and tried with the spring out. It's tough to get on (even with the spring out), but it fits fine :o

    Yeah...I took mine off for funzies and it took me about 10 minutes to try to wriggle the bitch back on. Are you trying to slide the extension on with the little black plate already on it? The easiest way for me was to use the black plate to push the spring into the magazine as far down as possible and then slide the extension on.

    i had no problems with 40SC. Are you using pen to hold the spring in?

    My friend bought one for his G29. I went to the bathroom while he fucked with it, then I hear my air compressor kick on an the air wheel start spinning.

    I tried that to no avail, although it seemed like it might work with more sweating and grunting.

    Plates shouldn't just slide off you have to squeezze the side of the case at the same time
