Any issues with Mec-Gar mags for the Ruger P series? Login/Join 
Member

So I know there are a few Ruger P series aficionados here and am wondering if anyone has ever had issues with Mec-Gar made mags for them versus Ruger factory mags?

I would like to pick up a couple more for the P89 I got recently (due in part to this forum) and they seem to be a little cheaper than Ruger factory mags.

Although I have never had any issues with the Mec-Gar made Sig factory mags I have, I figured it would not hurt to check.

Thanks!

They are gtg. When I had those P89/93/94/95 tanks, I used them Mec-Gars with zero problems.

Mec-Gar makes many of Ruger's "factory" mags and has for years.

Mec-gar is 100 percent good to go. As said before, they make many of the factory mags for a bunch of manufacturers. I prefer them to new factory mags due to cost and they are about the only substitute mag for me.

The only Mec-Gar I have no trust in is the P227 14-rounder.

I'll throw in the Mec-Gar 13rd mags for the Beretta 96.
They just have never been able to correct the body swelling.
I, Me, We, USAOZ and Mec-Gar went through a bunch of them and they all would swell when fully loaded and restrict insertion and dropping the mags when loaded.
The first story I got from Mec-Gar was an issue with one of its heat threat ovens. Waited over a year for a fresh batch to come into the USA and the new one's had the same problems. I finally just gave up and stick with the factory 12rd mags.
