    I bought a Pearce + 1 and used MagGuts with it. Ran great.
    So I thought about trying the Taran Tactical + 1's with MagGuts.

    I can squeeze the 8th round in the mag but it's hard to seat the mag and it will not rack. I even cut a coil off the stock spring and tried it. Sucks because I really like the shorter length on the Taran.
    So it's kind of useless using the Taran and MagGuts combo. All you can get is 7 rounds.

    Hmmm, interesting. I was going to try to pull this off with my 43 when MagGuts released a spring kit for it. The kits work great on my Kahr P380 6 and 7td mags.

    That was also my idea. But I seriously doubt it would work with the 43 either. Just not enough room.
    Damn shame, just a hair more room and it would work.

    My Pearce +1 was a little tight but you could still push the round down slightly when loaded with 8.
    The Taran has absolutely no play at all. So the slide is trying to push down on the round but can't.
    If I insert the mag with the slide back, it will chamber a round.

    Thanks for the info,

    Maybe I'll skip trying it and stick with just my TT plate.

    Now I'm stuck with 2 +1 Tarans. Not sure if I want to use them. They would be strictly for looks and it's an expensive look.

    That sucks, but I guess it saves me some money. I had just ordered the Pearce extensions when he announced the TTI ones.

    Thanks OP. I was just about to pull the trigger on TTI having already installed the Magutson my G42 mags. I will have to revisit the Pearce option.

    I just recieved another Pearce +1. Both Pearce + 1's with MagGuts have worked great so far.
    It does suck about the Tarans.

    Shadow65, did you use the maguts spring or the stock spring with the maguts follower with the Pearce +1?

    I use the Taran plus 1 and plus 2 with my stock mags and they work great.

    I use the supplied spring from MagGuts.

    Has anyone tried a TTI +2 with the Mag Guts? 9 +1 sounds very appealing.
