LCP 2, Minor issue

New to the forum and new to the LCP. I purchased a new LCP 2 last week and finally had a chance to shoot it. I always shoot the cheapest ammo I can find when I go to the range, so Monarch steel case was the range fodder for today. I started shooting at 7 yards and 20 rounds into my box of 50, the mag release button came out. I found the spring on the ground and finished my box of 50 with my middle finger holding the mag in place. I had no other issues with the pistol and it printed a consistent low left. I'll work on it. I found it to be a pleasant little gun to shoot with much less recoil than my Kahr CM9, smaller too. I got home and was able to get the release and spring back in place. If it happens again, I'll contact Ruger, but I think it had an issue from the start because the mag was very hard to insert. Now it inserts easily. We shall see how well it does at the next range session. All in all, I'm happy with it.

I hope to get to the range in the next few days. I ran the mag in and out probably 100 times with no issue. We shall see.

I was able to make it to the range today and fire 100 more rounds of Monarch steel. No problems at all. I also picked up some regular LCP mags from the state surplus store and they also worked just fine, other than not locking back. I fired 25 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense with no issues either. I worked on my grip and trigger control and it helped a bunch. Most rounds are low left, about 7 o'clock, in the 9 ring. No mag release issues at all. I'm very happy with this little shooter.
