I just got a Sig P226 9mm. Where is the best place to get mags, are Mek-Gar and Pro Mags good? Thanks...

Midsouth Shooting Supplies has 17rnd Mec Gars for around $17. Mec Gar is the company that makes the factory mags so they are about the only mag besides factory I'd use. Pro Mags are trash plain and simple. Don't waste your money.

Congratulations, also my first and favorite SIG. Great transactions with Greg's SF ad below. Those Mec-Gar 17 rounders mentioned above are a must also. Stick with SIG or Mec-Gar and they'll be carry / duty gun reliable.

NIW P226 9mm 15 round LEO marked (either German or MEC-GAR style) $26.00 each

I use 13rd Promags in my P228 as range mags, and they work pretty well. Not 100%, and I'd never carry with them, but I keep them so as not to scuff the shit out of the baseplates on the factory mags when doing speed reloads, and so that occasionally I can practice malfunction drills, which the gun never would have otherwise.

For a P226 9mm, the mecgar 17rd flushfits would be the way to go, don't pay more than $20ea.

We use Sigs here at work. I ordered a bunch of Pro-Mags from Brownells some time ago. They work if your not loading more than a few but after that we've had a lot of problems with them. They don't like the sand much either.

Sig makes some mags in Germany (the ones with the dovetail looking rib) and they also use the Mec-Gar stuff. Either is a great magazine to have and worth the extra price.

Congratulations on getting a nice reliable handgun. Just keep an eye out for the hammer pin walking if you shoot a lot.

I ordered 3 of the Mec-Gar 17 rd mags on sat, and I got them today. I wouldn't hesitate to use meg-gar mags in anything (that they make a mag for).

+1million for TopGunSupply. Mags came very fast, and prices are great there. I just ordered 4 more for my P229, and they already shipped. Fricking awesome. Buy from this place, they rule.

(Tom, get a dealer membership here on arfcom, this is the biggest -by far- gunboard on the net. And we are all cheap bastards looking for the best deal!)

I have a 20 rounder for my 226. It does protrude somewhat but, no big deal to me. I also use it occasionally in my 228.

http://www.topgunsupply.com <--just tried this site and when I click anything like "Sig mags" I just get the 1911 grips page, anyone know their prices on Mec-Gar 15rd P228 mags ? how are their shipping charges ?
Link Posted: 2/17/2006 3:29:34 PM EDT
We had some server problems today, but I think we have it straightened out. Sorry about that.

The Mec-Gar P228 magazines are $18.95 for blued and $19.95 for nickel. Flat rate shipping is $5.95 per order and we use USPS Priority Mail.

Thank you,

Tom

I'd like to add another shameless plug for Tom at TGS. I've placed 3 decent sized orders now, one for 5 15rd P228 mags (which are the SHIT), one for 5 P229 factory used mags (which work GREAT), and one for a P229 .40SW barrel, which arrived today (in pristine condition).

If Tom has it, buy it from him. Competitive prices, cheap shipping, and fast. Great company. I will be looking for another excuse to buy shit from TGS.

Mec Gar is really the only choice when it comes to Sig mags. Everything else is high priced junk, IMHO.
