I was checking out the new Sig Sauer P220 Stainless this afternoon and noticed that the factory eight-round mag had Made In Italy stamped on it. Is it just me, or should these mags have Made in Germany stamped on them?

I posted about this on Sigforum a while back when some of my 229 mags had holes up the side, not the back. Evidently Mecgar Is contracted to make them for Sig. They are consdered factory mags. That's what I keep hearing....
here's the link in case it helps. I've not used mine yet so I don't know how they are but they seem ok.

The ACT mags are also made in Italy and are equal quality to the factory IMHO. They are available through Novaks and cost about half factory cost.

it is my understanding that Mec-Gar (Italy) has been making Sig and HK factory mags for years, as well as many other reputable manufacturers. I certainly have no complaints. After all those Italians also produce the Ferrari, the Ducati, the Aprilia, Maserati, and some mean pasta to boot!
