    ProMag Magazines for M&P

    ProMag Industries has nice prices on their mags for the M&P in 9 and 40. Has anyone bought one? If so have you been pleased with it? Also noticed that they have a 25 round mag for the 40 and a 32 round for the 9. Looks like it would be a lot of fun. Any experience with those? TIA for your replies.

    I'm one of "those guys" who stick with OEM mags for carry. For range use, they are probably fine as they will give you a chance to practice malfunction clearance. That is something my M&P and I don't ever have to do unless I set it up.

    I have promag mags for a Sig P6 and they work great but I have heard many folks tell me their promags failed quick. I will say the ones for the P6 hold 2 rounds beyond their advertised capacity... Not sure if that is a feature or a defect...

    As stated in another thread recently, I would never, ever rely on ProMags for self defense. Range use, have a ball. I've given ProMags the benefit of the doubt for 1911s, a Sig 220, a Taurus and Kahrs, at least 6 mags in all, and every last one has failed me. The last couple were hammered flat before throwing them out so I wouldn't have someone else's bad fortune on my conscience.

    ProMags? Keep walking.

    I respect your opinion highly. If ProMag's products failed in four different brands of guns then I don't want to spend my money on them.

    OEM mags aren't that expensive. Why take the chance?

    Avoid ProMag. The quality is very poor. You pay more for quality.

    I bought 2 ProMag for M&P9 about 2 years ago during the great disturbance in the force.

    My M&Ps using either one of these mags began to jam consistently. I considered dumping them and even wrote to ProMag about it.

    I never heard back form ProMag so kept the two magazines in the range bag to work on malfunctions.

    Well eventually the mags started to work and no longer had any issues. So I would only have ProMag as a training mag and would not consider for a carry magazine [in the pistol or as an extra].

    When I'm looking for inexpensive mags, I look for LEO trades or Mec Gar. Try CDNN. They often have lightly used LEO OEM mags for M&P, Glock, and Sig for $15.

    ETA: Try this. CDNN SPORTS - MAGAZINES SMITH & WESSON

    I got sucked into pro mags because of the price. They totally suck, bought two of them. Both totally suck...
    Mec-Gar or from the gun maker is the only way to go if your life depends on it.

    The ones I bought were for a S&W Model 915...

    The Pro-mags I have used are for a Mini-14 and a 1911. They were NOT reliable and I would not recommend them! You can get OEM mags from CDNN,& Natchez Shooters, very reasonably. Good luck!

    my only experience with ProMag was with my mini-14.

    the feed lips were so misshapen that out-of-the b-box the bolt was not even engaging the ammunition. Forget if it fed properly, it would not even touch a round or begin to strip it out of the mag!! the bolt just ran back and forth right ove he top of the mag!!!

    after about 3 hours on each magazine I was able to carefully re-shape the feed lips, I had a Ruger OEM mag as a model.

    Now they work fine, and I have quite a bit of rounds thru them.

    I would not recommend this too anyone, and I will NEVER buy another Pro-Mag product again.... ever.

    have not tried them in handguns, have NEVER heard anything good about them.

    I suppose if you really need practice clearing malf's it might be a good idea to scoop up a few....

    I have a pro mag 32rnd for my M&P 9c. never had a problem using brass but it doesn't like aluminum or steel - the last 10 or so loaded (top ones once loaded full) don't run very well.

    It will never see hollow points but it's great for the range.
