    ProMag- Lets hear about them.

    OK, normally I would not buy aftermarket pistol mags but I'm going to need to here shortly. I'm going to buy a fairly decent quanity of mags, and the factory mags are just too expensive for what I want to use them for.

    ProMag is the only manufacture that produces what I want, but I know some of their rifle mags are garbage.
    That leaves me wondering about their pistol mags. Let me hear what you guys think before I plunk down a sizable amount of cash on them.

    I own 6 of them. They are much cheaper than factory. My Tauruss 45 it works fine. My Glock 17 they work fine but my 380 too many jam ups with them. They seem to be well made but the design is slightly different than the original. The only reason I started to buy them is that I could not fing mags for my Taurus PT945 but Pro Mag had plenty.

    Sixto,

    The only promag magazines I have are for my Bersa Thunder. They do not feed Magtech Gaurdian Gold. The reason is that they are just slightly shorter in the inside dimension of the magazine than the factory mag. I measured the OAL of the Magtech, and it is within the specs for the OAL of the bullet. I have never had a problem with FMJ on the ProMag since the OAL is shorter on the round nose bullets. Anyway, I use them for practice with round nose and they work fine. I use the factory mags with my carry ammo and everything works fine.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I had two for my old CZ, both of them starting catching real bad when inserting,and releasing,and one of them started giving me FTFs.

    I only had 500 rounds through the firearm when I sold everything, so alot less than the promags.

    Cool

    I wouldn't buy one for a HK P7M8. A couple came with an M8 I bought used (but like new) and in my opinion the magazine is good for nothing but use as a paperweight.
    Won't even use it to practice with.

    Thanks guys, honest opinions is what I need. Keep them coming, I know more of you have used ProMags.

    I wonder if I can manufacture what I want, or at least put some together from existing parts.

    I've got several Promags that I use on duty for my Sig220. I use a SIg factory 7 round mag in the gun and two 8 round Promags carried in a double mag pouch in the horizontal position at about 10:00.

    I have never so much as had a hiccup with them. If I doubted them in the least I would not carry them.

    I just put 100 rounds at our last requal though all 3 mags last month.No hangups,failures to feed,nothing, everything worked 100 percent.

    You probably arleady know, but if you dont CDNN sells them as cheap as anywhere I have ever seen.

    I don't have any direct experience, but they've been trashed up a lot on HKpro forums.

    I had some for a Para P-10 and P-14, they didn't work for crap, caused a lot of jams. I had some for a Springfield M1A, likewise caused a lot of jams.

    Needless to say I won't buy any more.

    Go with MecGar if they will fill your needs, hit a gun show and stock up

    I bought some Pro-Mags for my Sphinx .40 (last imported in 1979, I bought it at the end of 2005) that essentially is a high-end Compact CZ-75B. No factory mags or MecGar mags were available for said gun, only Pro-Mag.

    They work as advertised with no problems.

    Pro-Mag would never be my first choice based on lots that I have read. However, sometimes it is your only choice.

    I bought 4 mags for my G19. Every mag jammed repeatably. I threw them in the garbage.

    Do yourself a favor and do not buy them.

    Well, the results are pretty much what I already knew... they are no good unless I get lucky.
