I have some new CMC Power mags that occasionally will stick when ejecting an empty magazine. I think it is the follower hanging up.
Is there an easy fix for this?

Meh.........
I would think its the body that is binding.

If you press the mag release and hold it, will the mag drop free? What gun is this? Do you have other magazines? Is ot happening with them?

Mag will not drop free some times some times it pops out like its supposed to.
Factory mags work fine.

I have a Range Officer. Wilson, Tripps, and Metalforms all drop free no problem.

Edit: I misspoke. I have only run Wilson ETMs in the RO.

Number your mags. I suspect you will find one or more bind. Would believe the mag bodies are out of spec and causing the issue. Contact the seller and send them back

The two stainless mags are CMC and they run perfect in my RO Compact. I'd see if the manufacturer might replace them for you.

I have one 1911, where if I push the release firmly and hold it all of the way in, it will make contact with some mags and they will stick. If I push and release quickly, they will drop free. Just a thought I had when I read the sentence above.
