    New Magazines

    I've been looking at buying some new magazines. Are there any brands that are better, or worse, than any of the rest? The gun came with a MecGar when it was new, and I've had no troubles. I found a ProMag on Midway, but there a 5 terrible reviews to go along with it, which was the reason for this post. Any thoughts?

    What gun are the magazines for?

    In general, Mec-Gar has a good reputation. If its working for you, why switch?

    PT111 Millenium, 1st generation.

    I'm not necessarily looking to switch. I'm just looking for a good mag for a good price. I've had a little trouble finding a "non-pro" mag with no pinky extension. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right spot. Any thoughts on where to look?

    I bought a few from these guys. Very good to deal with.

    I've also had good luck finding mags on Gunbroker.com.

    Midway lists Taurus brand mags for the PT111 as well as Promag.

    $35 vs. $22

    I have never used Promag but have heard bad things from friends about them.

    Thanks for the help. I think it's worth spending the extra on this one.

    That's the best price I've seen yet for a factory mag. Just what I'm looking for. Thanks.

    Nothing wrong with getting a Promag for range use. The resulting feeding problems will be great for practicing malfunction/clearing drills.
