You would think one of the best pistols ever designed would have a great mag to go with it. I own a 21, 17, and a 26. I use the 17 strictly for competition, and the 26 is my wifes. I bought my 21 3 years ago and 2 additional new FML ten rounders. All the mags are bad now. The feed lips are all stretched and the springs are beat. Yeah, half the time my mags are loaded, but so what. That is a short life span for mags that work in a gun that was designed to last forever. I went ahead and bought all new FML mags. I guess I will have to do that every year or so.
