I am not sure how, but one of my M226 magazines has something sliding inside the gas tank.

Assuming that the M9 PTP magazine has the same internals (as the loading and top lip look the same), I checked the diagram, but I cannot see what could be the culprit of this sliding item.

Anyone has any idea? I have three other M226 mags and they are not showing any problems.

Thx
Leo

I'm guessing that it could be metal shavings.  These mags are milled from solid piece of metal.  If your not loosing gas then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I had the same problem.  I took the Mag apart and found out that it was the 1.5" tube. It could go loose. I just stuck it back in there and its okay now. Looks like its gonna stay there unless i drop the mag again! lol!  No leaks on my mag even after I took it apart.

Very often I've seen modder remove the tube.  I never get a chance to ask why.
