Hello. I’m needing a little help with my SCCY CPX-2 9mm. The magazine is very hard to load. (Stiff) Is there something I could do to make it easier to load the shells into the magazine?

I had the same problem with magazines for a Beretta 9mm.
I took off the base plate, pulled out the spring and cut off a couple of loops.
Worked for me.

That is something I would only suggest if replacement springs are available (and affordable) and only cut off a loop at a time.
If you snip off too much you can run into failure to feed of the last (couple of) rounds, especially if you do it on new magazines where the spring has not had time to "set" yet.

@yeyehalo without seeing how you load a mag it's hard to say how it can be done easier, this is how I do it:
(from 3:00) for me that works for every magazine until full.
Other than that an Uplula will definitely make life a lot easier. Some magazines are just harder to load than others.

Another vote for what I call the Lulu loader, they work wonders with hard to load magazines.

Buy one of these & you won't have any trouble loading any pistol mag.
It's the same as the Lula Loader but costs a lot less.
