    Wanted to know peoples opinions on which aftermarket mags are good or which ones to stay away from. Saw on other post people had some links w/ discounts- would help alot. Looking for some for my G19 and thinking about the 33 round mag too. Saw some are almost 1/2 the price. Thanks

    Had a "ProMag" G17 version, POS would double feed or half feed rounds and eventually the bottom dropped out. Stick with the factory ones.

    For my Glocks it's OEM only. My Beretta is have MDS,is a divison of Beretta, and OEM. SIG's I've use both OEM and Mec-Gar. Mec-Gar is OEM for serveral makers.

    Pro-Mag and USA mags are junk.

    I've got two that I've ran a couple hundred rds through without issue. I read quite a few reviews on them, and general concensious is that they're pretty good for range work, however that you should stick to the OEM if it's for CC.

    At half the price of OEM, I'll probably be picking up a few more KCI mags.

    I've never had a problem with my Khan mags despite what others report.

    Korean mags are Gtg! I would buy them before any American or Chinese copies.

    i've only bought OEM mags for my Glock 26 that i carry. the 12 rd +2 that is and yes the grip length is still shorter front to back than a 19 and i always have the option of the 10rd for deep concealment. so please no "just get a 19" comments. the OEM mags cost more but my life is worth it.

    I have three Khan mags. All three are junk. They lock the slide back every other round and then don't hold the slide back after the last round:upeyes:

    For another $10 I could have had two OME Mags.:yawn:

    Anyone want to buy some "just like Glock mags?"

    I have a KCI Korean 15 round G19 magazine that seems to work pretty well.

    Have 2 KCI mags for my 19. Use them for the range and the Glocks for CC. They work great.:tongueout:
