How can these factory German P210 Legend mags be so cheap? Login/Join

Because they were made in Italy, that's how. Roll Eyes

As we all know, the Legend mags are a little pricey. SIG Store sells them for $102.

You can get them much cheaper at TGS, at $63. Still expensive, though.

So, when you see them go for $41 niw, you buy them, right? Why not? So, I got five, expecting the German mags. Well, guess what? According to the box, they were made in Germany. Woo hoo! Take a close look at the actual mags themselves, they were MADE IN ITALY. I know they will function just fine, as they are Mec-Gar, but WTF, SIG? Roll Eyes

So, where DID you get them so inexpensively? I have no objection to Italian magazines-at 40 percent the price of German ones.

Do these work in the P210A? Baseplate looks shorter.

Here's a logical explanation: the label was made in Germany. Razz

Yeah...the glories of outsourcing. At least it's to someone who generally KNOWS what they're doing. However the real kicker is that if Mec-Gar were to market them under their OWN label and rollmark, they would be $20 apiece. Smile

But WHO did you buy these from? Or is this one of those gun world 'secrets' (like favorite hunting spots) that never gets divulged...

Was just browsing GB for some P210 stuff and found them. Seller had 10. Bought 5. And, it looks like someone else bought the rest.

Yes, will work in the American P210 and also in the Swiss P210 with the side mag release.

Yup, check them, and they are the exact same mag body as the one from the P210A. So, no go for the Swiss heel release P210.
