    I've never had a Promag anything work reliably. I would not purchase any more of their products.

    CDNN has Sig mags for a P-238 for only $9 more than Promags.

    ProMags are hit or miss.
    Some of them work wonderfully. Others suck.

    You wont know until you put a lot of rounds through them.

    Generally speaking, Pro-mags are not a good way to spend your money. In fact, given all the complaints I read about and hear about them, I'm sort of amazed they've been around as long as they have.

    I wouldn't spend the money on them. It's not actually saving anything if the magazine you buy is defective. Believe me, I wish they worked as advertised. Their 20 round mags for my Beretta Cx4 are pretty cheap, while the ones from Beretta are $50. Still if I can't use them, the money I would've spent on those would be better used towards factory mags.

    I'd rather have 2 working mags for $100, than 5 non-working for the same price, you know?

    The ProMags that I have for my P-3at feed great over 200 round in each mag.
    I had two of the 33 round mags for Glock and they would only feed three rounds and then jam up.
    I tried both 33 round mags in all three pistols (17,19,and 26) and in my Kel-Tec SUB 2000 and they were jam-o-matics. I had to use a screwdriver to pry lose some rounds to even get them out. They were exchanged for Glock 33 rounders.

    Just check with the return policy if you decide to get the ProMags.
    Kel-Tec P-3at, Taurus PT-908, Glock 17, Glock 19, Glock 26, Kel-Tec SUB-2000 9mm (Glock 17 mag compatible),Kel-Tec PF-9, Ruger SP-101 2 barrel hammerless, Maverick Arms 88 Security 8-shot 12 gauge, Marlin 336W .30-30 Win., Rossi Model 92 SRC .357 Mag.

    Thanks to all. I have done some more looking too. I will stick with the Sig mags. Cannot have a mag that is not reliable. Appreciate it.

    The P238 is modeled on the out-of-production Colt Mustang. The Mustang magazines are available on many firearms website. I got mine at Cheaper Than Dirt and it fits/works just fine.

    The best seller for Sig parts is "Top Gun Supply". I bought two additional mags for my 238 and they were identical to the stock (rounded follower)
    All work flawlessly, and I can't tell them apart any more. They were $34. (now $31)

    I have heard some folks say Colt Mustang mags work, and some don't. The 238 is not an exact copy.

    I just looked online, and the new mags don't look like mine. The newest have the dimple, mine don't.mmmm.JPG

    Maybe it's just me, but the follower looks steeper than mine. I do think this is the current 238 factory mag.

    Oh, and Top Gun Supply is a first class organization. Fear not.

    That has generally been my experience too! Stick with the factory magazines and save yourself a lot of headaches. JMHO.
    God bless our troops!
