Take the magazines apart and make sure the springs are in the right way. If you hold the spring in front of you the top of the angle should face the front of the magazine.

I had this problem on one of my JCP magazines.

Once there are bullets, 3 plus, it jams up, just gets stuck until I smack it around, bullets fly out while I'm smacking it because it's not holding pressure to the top

I've had them apart, cleaned and reassmbled.

Pack em full and leave them sit. First things first. Those springs are almost always too tight from the factory to work well.

OK truck800 I'll bet this is the deal!!
I forgot about this - It's something I do without thinking about it anymore...

Well actually, I don't do this anymore and I'll explain why.

When I got my 45, I figured out after I load the mag - I had to whack it against my hand a couple times before putting it in the gun.
When I am at the range, I usually set my stuff on the hood of my suburban.
I'll shoot, and reload the mags using the hood for a bench.
Anyway - you can lightly whack em' against something a little more solid - like the fender on my suburban.

What's the mag whacking do to make them work right??
Well, the rounds can get so they aren't stacked right - out of alignment and maybe gaps between the rounds.
A couple of whacks takes all the slack out of everything and the spring tightly aligns the rounds in the mag - and it'll work every time!!
I've never tried loading my mags and then let them sit.
I always used them new - straight from the package - but with a good whacking after they're fully loaded.

Now - the reason I DON"T do this anymore...
I bought a speed loader:

Image

I was all excited when I got it because loading 6 mags at a time was tough on the thumb!!
I stuck it on a mag - and it went on about this far... )-:

Image

You can see why on the right side of the mag - there's a "bump" there which I believe is the Mag Catch.

Now when I bought it, it didn't say it would fit on a 45 ACP Hi-Point mag - but I knew it would be close!!
It was that small "bump" on the mag that was stopping it from working,
So, I took it out to the garage and got my die-grinder out and did this:

Image

I "clearanced" the speed-loader where the "bump" was hitting it.

It fits perfectly now - And it's worked great ever since!!

Image

It was the best $8.99 I ever spent!!

Now - even with the speed loader, I have to do this...
When I get all 9 rounds in the mag...
I rapidly push the 9 rounds down with the speed loader a couple times and let them "spring" back up.
I just "bump" the top of that speed-loader.
I can tell when they are sitting right in the mag from the speed-loader.

If you don't do this, it will do all kinds of weird and inconsistent things...

And before everyone starts with the "Hi-Point Hating" (wait - this is HPT!! Theres no haters here!!)
This isn't the only mag that works better with the "Mag Whacking" technique.

So - when you get that mag loaded - whack it.
Or, if you are using a speed-loader - bump-it!!

And enjoy the hell out of your 4995. (-:
Or - if you still hate it - PM me and let me know - I'll make an offer on it....

I didn't even think about setting the rounds in the magazines. Good call Jason. Load em up and bump the primer side against the palm of your hand. It's such a habit I forgot I even do it. It's not just Hi Points. Most all magazine fed guns will give you fits if you don't give em a wack. Again, good call.

Jason is correct, I always whack all mags before I insert them in a weapon.

I've been whacking my magazines so long I don't even realize I do it anymore. Good call Jason.

I whacked the magazines good and it seemed about the same, I took the magazines apart, filed and sanded the back side where they are connected and that seemed to help. I'm out of ammo so once I grab some more I will try again, maybe it just needs to be shot more. The clips were fully loaded the whole time too.

I lightly sanded the underside of the mag lips on my C9. There was just enough bur there from the stamping process
that they wouldn't "strip" and go into battery if under very much pressure.
