Not to hijack but is Beretta ever going to produce hi-capacity mags in .45 for the Storm?

Try Wolff springs. I have heard of someguys that already had pro mags get some extra power springs from wolff and the mags worked great after. I do not know if they make springs for that mag or not though. I wonder if to get the 9th round in instead of 8 they just tried to shorten the spring. You also might try just ordering springs from Beretta for their mags and put them in the pro mags. Wolff would be my first choice though.

I would call Beretta direct and tell them that you need some springs for your factory 8045 mags and just swap the springs.

Pro-mag is known for their weak springs. Every Pro-mag I ahve ever used, I changed out the mag springs with Wolff's.

Representatives with BerettaUSA have been on berettaforum.net and have stated that a 20rd. mag is being designed for the .45 Storm. Should be available soon.

the CX4 storm's in 9mm are getting magwell adapters to take px4 magazines.

their will be a px4 in 45acp, some reports say that limited amounts have already hit the LEO market.

no doubt the 45acp CX4 storms will get magwell adapters to take highcap 45acp px4 magazines. im sure this was there plan from the beginning.

this is all third hand info, except for the first paragraph.

Wave,

Try removing the followers and smoothing up their sides. Also, compare the feed lips to the factory mags. Maybe the ProMag units need a little tweaking. If you can, try swapping in the spring and follower from a Beretta mag and see what it does. That could help figure out what is the root cause of the problem with the ProMag units.

Wave, aside from the springs being weak, did you compare the followers side by side? I'd bet if there were a little flash on the plastic from the molding, a little sand paper would take care of it.


I just got a ProMag 20 rd 9mm magazine, and it looks alright. I has a plastic shroud on the bottom like the Beretta 20rd magazines come with. The back side (back of the magazine) is not shaped/angled at the top, so it hits the magazine adapter in the Storm. A little file work will remedy that. If I take the shroud dealy off, the magazine seats fine in the gun, and locks the bolt back normally.

As for how it feeds? I don't know yet. I might get to the range tomorrow afternoon or evening.

I also got a couple MecGar magazines. They look pretty nice, and have a much better reputation than ProMag.
