    Para 14 Magazines

    As most know, I am trading for a Para 14. It has one factory magazine and it seems I read somewhere that the factory mags aren't the best choice. Does anyone know the truth and also what is a good source of magazines? Thanks in advance and regards, Richard

    Well, on a standard 1911, Wilson mags are usually considered the best - but that is a hi capacity 1911, isn't it? I think the only one who makes those mags is para.

    I've heard that also. I've heard nothing definitive as far as how true it might be. I've got two sold to my friend when he gets a P14 (neither one of us have one yet). If you get any information other than on here, post it up. I'd really like to know (since I bought them during the ban and paid waaaay too much).

    You can order some 13 round Mec-Gar mags from Gary at Az Gunrunners for about $20. I used them in my Springfield wide body and they are GREAT! Here's a link to the page scroll down to Para Hi cap.

    I ordered 2 Mec-Gars from Top Gun Supply. I will see and report on how they work. Thanks and regards, Richard

    Mec-Gars are excellent - I use them in my P16-40 Limited.

    Mec-Gar is the manufacturer of the factory magazines for many of the firearms companies.
