What's the general concensus on these magazines? Worth a darn? I'm thinking of getting a couple for my .380 to see if they're any better than the factory mags.
Thanks!

I have a couple for my CZ-85,9mm, 15rnd, and they work fine, they rattle around a little, but other than that they work great,that being said, I'd think twice about buying any of their AR mags, From what I've read here, those mags are junk,Can't understand how a company can make a pistol mag that works, but can't make a AR mag that works.....

I have ten for a 9mm Witness and they work fine. I also changed out the springs for Wolff's.

Yup, I have about SIX of them for my HS2000 - all converted, 15rd'ers. They work great, if not better than the factory mags. They're heavy duty too - it took my DeWalt about 2 minutes to drill through one of those puppies.

Bought my mom a 15-round Promag for her Ruger P95 and it works great.

Good Stuff. As far as aftermarket pistol mags are concerned, IMHO you have three choices:
1)MEC-GAR
2)PRO-MAG
3)JUNK

I have several for a Sig 228. Works like champ, not even a babble.

I have a couple of Promags for my Bersa .380. They both work fine, altho I wish they had a finger rest like the factory mag. I have several for my Ruger P85, and the only problem is when I unload by hand the follower will catch on the mag catch hole. During firing, however, they work fine. I tend to empty them that way anyway!

I have several for my MDL 59 S&W and they have always worked 100%.

Rabbit9 hit it on the head, I think. But I don't consider Mec-Gar to be after market. I believe they either make or have made factory mags for Sig, Browning, Beretta, Taurus, and Walther. Does'nt Beretta own them?

A buddy of mine bought some Pro-mags for his Sig 226. They didn't work worth shit, the feed lips were at the wrong angle. He called Pro-mag, they said 'oh yeah, the older ones are like that'. He said 'that so? how about giving me my money back since your mags don't work'. Pissing match ensues, they finally agree to refund his money. He sends back the mags, they don't credit his credit card. Four calls to them, no credit. Finally disputes the charge, then Pro-mag credits his account. Lousy business practice. I've also had bad luck with Pro-mags for a 3913. I don't buy them anymore.

I have several for a Beretta 92fs, absolutely no problems so far.
