Hello!

My MKII mags are dropping after fire. I insert it until it "clicks", but it drops after firing it.
I'm using the mag that came with it, same version of the gun.
What's the problem? How can I solve it?
Ps. My finger is out of the mag release during fire.

I've ran into this problem recently. Now i dont know if this is the "proper" fix to the problem but it worked for me. If you look closely at the trigger you should see a hex screw inside the actual trigger. Tighten that bad boy up just to where you barely have to use force to screw it in and it should solve the problem. Dont tighten the screw too much! if you do the trigger wont pull and you wont be able to fire the gun at all

Since the trigger presses the magazine catch deeper into the magazine recess , or holds it latched, Raf's solution has merit.  The trigger adjustment screw determines how far the trigger has to be pulled before it meets the mag catch.

But I think the real issue is wear on both parts and weak spring weight in the magazine catch.  I barely have to press the magazine catch to drop the mag on mine.  This time of the morning I can't determine if the "screw" in the magazine catch is a screw or a quarter-turn latch as on a real M1911.  Once the magazine catch is removed a heavier spring inside will help retain the magazine more securely.  Something I'm going to investigate.

I don't see the magazine catch as a spare part in the Proshop.

Thanks! i'll try to fix it. It's not wear since it's new. I'll keep you posted.
