How are Pro-mags? Good? Bad? Run away?

Im wanting some 220 mags and the Sig factory mags a little pricey.

Any help whould be appreciated. If there is a good place to purchase mags please post.

Thanks and I have searched the EE.

Stay with the SIG factory mags. Pro Mags are a crap shoot, IMHO. Charles the Gunsmith.

Generally, if you're shooting a Sig, stay with Sig (or original equipment manufatcurer, I think Mecgar does Sig) mags. after market mags are cheaper, but they can be a crap shoot in terms of reliability.

There are exceptions, but this rule has helped to keep my guns reliable over a lot of years. I learned it the hard way, buying cheap mags and getting very frustrated when my gun didn't work.

the magazine is the weakest link in every semi-auto system. Don't compromise it with junk mags.

Here's another idea for you, ACT/Novak. I think they're the best thing going right now. Check out Cope's Distributing. $18 each last time I checked for 8 round nickel or blue steel. They run great. Never had a problem with them. MJD

ETA: looks like they're up to 19.99 each. MJD

promags, in general, SUCK

mecgars, novacs and factorys are the best usually

Most of the time, they hold ammunition well, so if you have a bunch of loose rounds you need to store, Promags work well, but plastic boxes are cheaper.

factory or mec-gar should be good to go

I don't gamble with my life, so I use factory mags and make sure I run Many SD rounds through them..
