The spring is very stiff from the factory. It will loosen up with usage.

Yep, it's much stiffer then form my SP-01, and SP-01 mag release doesnt fit, I guess everybody knows that. Oh well....

Well, the magazine release spring plays a greater role than the button itself, lol.

Just keep pressing it.

You could try to slightly bend one of the arm of the "Magazine Release Spring", at the lower half.
Here is the part from CGW. Even if you manage to mess it up, it's only $2

Here is how you can deal with it at 12:15



Also here at 9:15 and 12:00

Thanks for posting videos.
Spring is way wider then SP-01, so I squeezed it little to make same width and now it's perfect.
I also converted it to SOA with CGW single action trigger :)
Thanks again for posts.

Wow! Wasn't expecting to hear that.  Nice!  Got a trigger pull gauge report?

Does CGW race hammer fits P120? One post here claims it does.
I would love to put it on P120.
Thanks.
