Magazines from which handguns? Are any of them Glocks?
The information I shared was information straight from Glock's Law Enforcement Armorer division. It's a problem that happens to select magazines. They can't figure out why exactly it only affects certain magazines and not all.

I couldn't say with other handguns, but I know that with the Beretta mags this was the case for magazines previous to about 2005.
