Just got a Buck Mark Stainless Camper with the 5.5" bull barrel and TruGlow front sight. Wanted a good plinker for the range to build skill. For some reason, the magazine drops out ALL the time while firing. It's locked in tight (and clicks) but sometimes it'll jump out after the first round is fired (or 3rd, 4th, it can happen any time), and frequently it'll jump out after 10 rounds when the slide locks back. It's annoying 'cuz if I don't catch it, it can fall in front of the firing line.

I make sure that my hand is nowhere near the the mag release. What in the world?

Possibly your magazine is falling out due to the excessive recoil of the artillery shell your Buckmark is chambered for?

Whoops. I meant bull barrel, not bore barrel. :D

Thanks for the link. I hope it's the mag and not the pistol. But overall, it doesn't look like it's hard to fix. Just right now it's annoying. Thanks!
