    So I posted a while ago some questions about my para-ord "CCW" and by the forums advice I ordered some new mag springs from brownells. Well I got my new springs (Wolff extra power, comander/officer length) and they fit in the magazines fine, all seven rounds fit in the mag (just barely though), but the magazines will not seat now. There is no more room left in the mag for the spring to compress. The springs are quite a bit longer than the factory ones, these are flush fit magazines by the way. What should I do? Should I trim these springs? Did I order the wrong size?
