    Pro Mag?

    I just purchased a firearm that came with only one magazine.
    Factory magazines are pricey, but Pro-Mag makes a version.

    What's your experience with Pro-Mag?

    I read a review, and the writer liked the Pro Mag better than the stock.

    The Pro-Mag has a thick base plate (Rubber?) and doesn't look as good as the stock flush fit.

    I've never had a Promag product work right, tried a couple different pistol mags and some M1A mags, all JUNK.

    Was that review written by a promag employee? Because for what I have seen on nearly every forum I've been on, the overwhelming opinion is against promag. Normally the price difference is only a few bucks. The only non-factory mags I would buy are Mec-gars and they make some oem mags.

    I have three pro-mag magazines for my Sig P-6. They work really well.

    Run, don't walk, away from anything made by Pro-Mag.

    The first one I ever bought happened to work just fine in a compact Taurus. The next couple, bought for other guns, weren't worth the plastic they were wrapped in. They succumbed to "percussive maintenance."

    I have a Pro-Mag mag for my USP only because HK mags are like $893456783457604. I only use it for the range. I don't trust the Pro-Mag for night stand duty, I only trust the factory HK mags. With that said, I've never had the Pro-Mag fail to function properly.

    The one I bought for my Bersa 380 works as well as the factory mag that came with it.

    OP didn't say what kind of gun, but MecGar makes magazines for most guns, and they work. MecGar is the magazine manufacturer for alot of gun makers.

    I would stay away from ProMag. I recommend Mecgar mags.

    I'll check out MecGar.
    The factory is backordered on stock mags.

    Thanks to all!

    I like Tapco mags, they work really great in my AK, for my 1911 I use Chip Mc Cormicks, best mags on the market in my opinion.
