Riding LCP II mag release during firing?

I have the new LCP II. I am finding that I may be riding or hitting the mag release during shooting as I randomly get the mag to drop while shooting. I have 3 mags and I cannot isolate it to one of them. Shooting one handed has not caused this issue yet. I wish they had the release a little more protected and less rounded. Anyone else experienced this error or is it just me? Maybe 3-4 times during 50 shots is what I experienced.

Yep

I have the same problem.Had to readjust my grip .I also changed to the flat mag floor plate as I found my 3rd finger exerted downward pressure on the mag.I'm still trying to get profient with new grip however.

Thanks for the reply. I tried switching the mag plates but for me it makes no difference. Just have watch out for inadvertent contact with the mag release. Cheers.

So my only reliable solution is not to use my usual 2 thumbs forward grip with left hand filling the right hand grip opening high up. I think it is my left hand tripping the mag release, because strong side only doesn't trip the mag so far. So something between the ineffective teacup grip and my usual grip, but where the supporting left hand is gripping lower than usual, below the mag release. I see videos of others shooting this with usual grip, so I hope it's not my gun. This gun is so cool, but has been a little disappointing. Replaced a bad extractor. Replaced a bad mag. Sensitive mag release. It would be nice to get feedback from others here on whether they do or don't modify their two handed grip on the LCP II. Perhaps I should post another question that is more specific on grip.

Unhappy Same magazine drop issue LCP2

I have the same issue found out last night. Previously, when I shot the gun, I was seeing how accurate so slow shooting. Last night, I put it through the paces of fast response with multiple quick shots. Using Ruger ammo. Each time, after the second shot, the magazine dropped about 3/8 of an inch and no round was available in the chamber. I was left with a slide open situation. I don't want to have to worry if that is going to happen again sometime.

I have not had that problem and I use a two thumb forward grip.
