I am going to buy a kmp9 soon, and I heard that you have to insert the magazine with the bolt locked back because if you don't it may break some internals. Is this true? I was just wondering for when I get mine. Thanks! :thumbsup:

That's not an issue with the MP9 so far as I know.

I have neither experienced nor heard of such cases.  Where did you hear this?

I have fired over 2K rounds through mine and just examined the loading nozzle to see if there are any signs of wear.  I have not noticed any damage or issues.  Has anyone else reported such cases?

I got mine back in May of this year.  If there was a problem it must have been addressed since this video is about 8 months old.  I usually slam the heck out of my mags when I load with the bolt closed and no such issues to date so you are safe I think.
