    KCI seems to be pretty common. Sounds like its hit or miss, some people have good luck and others don't. Personally I only buy Glock factory mags.

    I would prefer the glock 20, second would be KCI/KHAN/ATI stick mag.

    The Korean stuff is fine but the springs arent quite strong enough to make loading them a living hell like Glock mags and that bothers some folks.

    As Doc said if you clean up the plastic flash and re-spring them with either Glock factory 33 round 9mm springs or Wolff big stick spring springs,they are reliable,but at a increased cost.
    I bought mine for a Kel Tec Sub 2 K and at that time Glock did not produce a 22 round .40 magazine,they were the only option.

    Ya I was going to buy one of the 22 round glock mags but the lowest I can find it is for $40 shipped and I can get two of the 31 round mags for that price

    I've learned my lesson more than once, I now buy only OEM mags.

    Just got two. Clean flash inside and out. Wipe down inside with rem oil and then wipe dry. Works great and they will hold 32 rounds but if you do load 32 you must lock in with slide back and charge the chamber with the 32nd round.

    I have seen some aftermarket mags for the Glocks that are made of metal. I would stay away from those. The metal could cause premature wear on the mag catch on your pistol, which might eventually result in your Glock mags (or any mag for that matter) to not lock into place.
    Glock mags are usually reasonably priced if you shop around, and a reliable mag is the most important part of your pistol. Most malfunctions can be traced to a faulty mag, so I only use Glock mags for duty, off duty, and range use.

    I have a khan 33 for my g26 it's strictly range duty and have had a couple failure to feeds but it's usually due to putting pressure on the mag, never had a problem with the stock mags but since there range duty mags I would save the money

    I got mine from lone wolf for something like $17 bucks

    I have two of the Korean made 31 round 40 S&W. They are NOT reliable. You can only use FMJ rounds, no hollow points. I have tried cleaning them up, but they are not well made. I suspect the springs are too weak. OK for the range, but not for anything else.

    If you're thinking SD I wouldn't run anything but OEM.
    Even for the range, what's wrong with a 22 round OEM big stick?
    I have three for my G27 and they work perfect.

    Glock mags are very available. Why take a chance on other mags?
