    Hi all
    I purchased a shield arms 15 round magazine but they are out of the aluminum mag catchers. The question is will any aluminum mag catch work with that mag? I’m kind of thinking it would but I figured I’d ask or you guys first before I purchase it. Reading through the threads I see they’re coming out with a steel one but I figured I’d use an aluminum one until the steel one comes out on the market for sale.
    Thanks
    Mike

    I have a Hyve Technology aluminum mag catch in mine but I don't have any S15 mag's yet. So far it works great with OEM mag's.

    I use a NDZ alum catch with my S15 mags in my G48. I like the HYVE catch also. I have a HYVE catch in my G17 - works great. When or if the steel catch comes out I plan on getting it.

    I've got a Tyrant aluminum catch right now, but keeping an eye on the steel version from Shield.

    Is the aluminum catch causing you some grief, or you would feel better with steel, or what?

    You haven't noticed any chewing up around the catch area of the OEM mags? How many mags have you fired?

    I have an NDZ aluminum mag catch and it’s working fine with my S15 and OEM mags. Haven’t noticed any chewing yet on the OEM but I don’t shoot my 43X that much.

    I’ve only done 4-5 mags. I just put it in the other day. So far no wear visible.

    I installed the Tyrant in my G48 last week and the experience was disappointing.

    Just barely touch the button - and the magazine would go flying out.
