    Any experience with 9mm Sig 226 higher capacity magazines?

    There seem to be a wide variety of aftermarket 18-20 round magazines available for the Sig 226 in 9mm. Has anyone tried any of these out?

    I'd like to get some for range/HD use, but only if they are reliable. If they aren't then I will stick with the standard 15 round magazines.

    Top Gun Supply has 6 different varieties, some made my Sig, and some by Mec Gar: Sig Sauer P226 Magazines | 9mm Sig Magazines

    I would assume that that Sig ones probably work okay. But, I'd like to hear if anyone else has knowledge before purchasing anything.

    In the early '90s I carried a P226 at work. I carried the Sig 20 round mag in it, and two spare 15 round mags. I never had a problem with the 20 round mag the entire time I had it.

    I have heard negative things about ProMag, however.

    Mecgar makes all of Sigs mags last I knew, and they function flawlessly. 18-20 rounders will work fine from Sig or mecgar. 226 is my edc and never had an issue with Mecgar mags.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    FWIW, I use Mec-Gar mags exclusively in my Sigs (both P226's and P220's).

    You've recieved solid advice above. Mecgar good, promag bad.
