mag pops out

    I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem with a Walther PPK/S 380.
    With a full magazine ( 7), and one in the chamber, the magazine, almost always, pops out on the first trigger pull (DA).
    After reinserting the mag, and racking the slide it works
    most of the time through the rest of the load in the mag.
    If I cock the hammer myself, on the first shot, (SA) with a full mag and one in the chamber, then things work 90% of the times.
    My thumb is not near the mag release to depress it by accident.
    I have tried 12 different brands of ammo.
    A gunsmith has not taken the gun apart, but thinks the mag catch is good and tight.
    Once the mag holds in there, after 1st shot, no problem.
    I did read that new magazines ( I have 5 new, 2 old) need to be broken-in????
    The PPK/S is from Interarms I bought used 6 months ago.
    Could too much slide lubrication be getting around the catch?
    Any ideas before I take it in for repairs, and wait for parts from S&W.
    Thanks
