Looking for reasonably priced 15rnd mags for my wife's P95 that are reliable. I've seen plenty of no name mags ranging from $10 up. I've been down the no name aftermarket jamomatics path. Factory mags would be nice, but I've yet to see any for a reasonable price. Anyone have experience with Mech Gear mags, there is a place locally selling them NIW for $40 a piece. Seems a little steep, but not compared to the NIW factory. Thoughts?

Are you sure it wasn't Mec-Gar? If it was they are good mags, they make factory mags for several manufacturers.

Mec-Gar is worldest largest OEM of magazines. I can also recommend Pro-Mag, I don't have a P85, but they work well in Baretta, Sig228, and CZ75. What I would do is buy one, and take it out to the range and blast the heck out it, and if you're satisfied get some more, or get a refund.

I've got a new factory 15rd mag for a 9mm P89. Not sure if it fits your model though.

Yeah, I think it was Mec-Gar. I'm pretty sure that all the ruger P series mags in 9mm are interchangable. If I could just find some at a decent price...

Mec-Gar is top quality, and the price isn't too bad for pre-bans... you'd probably pay the same online after shipping. Go for it!

Found some Ramlines for $10 and some Promags for $20 apiece. Are these worth messing with?

I haven't seen a Ramline that fed properly, but I have had good results with the ProMags. Have you checked "Cheaper Than Dirt" they had some PMI 17 rounders that are supposed to be pretty good.

He has a P95, not a P85. Everything I have ever tried ProMags in was a miserable flop, including Rugers and Sigs and I will never buy another ProMag and I would recommend strongly against them.

Thanks guys, think I'm going to try the cheaper than dirt PMIs...

Well, personally for me I didn't have any problems with Ramlines. The Ramline mags have a flat-type spring rather than a coil, so they can hold 2 more rounds than the factory mags. I have used Ramline Baretta 92, & Browning P35 High-power, and didn't have any problems with them. These mags were bought back around 1992. I don't know if they are still being manufactured in sine the '94 AWB though.

My Ramlines have worked well for years. Thats a good price.

Promags have been fine in my FEG hi-power clone, but some 147 grn. loads won't fit in them.
