I picked up a few .40 XD mags at the show a few months ago, and I just tried loading one. Something is messed up, when I get about 5 rounds in, some of the rounds jam up in the mag and you can hear some other rounds rattling around. Needless to say, this would be the mag to offer up to the bad guy in a gun fight....

My Makarov mags don't work very well, they don't hold the slide open on the last shot.

My Beretta mags work pretty well, but I've limited them to range mags only.

Both have failed to feed once in a while, but very rarely.

With the mag ban gone, buy the real things.

My HK USP .45F ProMags are range only.

Never had a problem with the 10 round .32 Beretta Tomcat ProMags.

But they are cheap...

Factory mags are overpriced and for gun snobs.

I could buy REAL highfalooting surplus AK mags for $9.00 but shitty US aftermarkets can sometimes be had for $6.00 each. Surplus mags are a RIPOFF.

Besides I saw on the History Channel that the AK is the most reliable rifle in the world so it should work with shitty US aftermarket magazines.

Just to be safe I use Wolf ammo and everyone knows that works in AKs.

I've got a promag for my 9mm XD. So far no problems. It's been loaded/unloaded about four times now.

Man, I hear ya on tha one. My range mags end up being my most reliable mags! If they screw-up, they either get fixed (USGI, new Wolff spring, makes 'em like new) or they go in the trash. Life is too short to mess around with mags that screw-up! And I don't need the stress when I'm at the range.

My crap mags get put away when not being used.
