    My experience with Promag magazines is the quality is so-so. Spend a few dollars more and buy MecGar. They are the magazine supplier for many gun makers.

    I bought two for my LCP. They were less expensive, but I never experienced any issues with them at all. When pulled the trigger the gun went bang...everytime. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more.

    I have 2 for my M9 and the springs don't stack right. A lot of magazines rattle but these are very noisy.

    I've had one set for a sig 220, worn out in less then a year of light use, constantly jammed. A second set for a bersa 380 worked except would not lock back after last round.

    I have one ProMag "32 round" mag for my PPQ, that ctually takes 33 rounds (?)
    Spring feels soft, but it feeds. I've seen a LOT of people have problems with their mags, though. If you can, stick to factory mags, or go with a company like MecGar, who makes outstanding mags, and is the maker for a lot of the OE mags for some companies like Walther and S&W.

    Shop around on the Internet if you are wanting ProMags because they are always selling for less than MSRP.

    however, i have a question about this: Springs for SIG-SAUER (SIGARMS) 556 Rifle Rifles & Shotguns

    will this fit any sig rifle that fires 5.56 or is this only for a rifle named Sig Sauer 556? How often do ar-15 recoil springs wear out?

    My experience with ProMag is not good. You can do far better - and even if you buy a couple for the range to save a few bucks over OEM, I wouldn't use them for defensive carry.

    Nope they're not any good, save money somewhere else.

    I like OEM mags never had luck with repro. I have replaced springs with Wolfe springs and been happy
