More on the Mags

I want to say thanks to my readers who have pointed out some solid information about Mec-Gar magazines which makes me much more comfortable ordering them.  As of right now, I have three factory mags from Para (one 10-round magazine and two 16-round mags), and on order I have 1 10-round Pro-Mag, 1-16 round MecGar magazine, and one 18-round MecGar magazine.

I’m eagerly looking forward to them showing up at my house so I can burn up some more .40 S&W ammo.

Thanks again to everyone who pointed out that I was on crack about not trusting MecGar.


  1. Those Para’s that were were giving you problems, you may want to disassemble them & spray them down with Brake Cleaner, & lube them, A lot of crap & dirt get blown down in the wells, & can cause them to malfunction, the crud just gets built up.
    I had a guy give me like 50 AR-15 20 rounders because they didn’t work anymore, & I’m still using the ones I kept after cleaning, & that was 15 years ago.

  2. Yeah, after the match the first thing I did was take them apart and clean them up – I have a steel match this Friday so we’ll see how they run for that.
