Has anyone tried the 18rd 9mm Mec-Gar magazines in their 9mm service model? I'm wondering how well they work, and how reliable they are in the XD's. I'm always cautious of magazines that have a higher capacity than factory mags.

Mec Gar are great mags. Mec Gar in fact supplies different firearms manufacturers with factory mags such as Sig, Ruger, Beretta, etc.

I have seen the 18rounders in the Beretta 92FS and they are a quality mag. The one few that I have experience with were absolutely trouble free.

In fact, I have a couple of HS2000 mags that I need to rebuild, so if you wouldn't mind picking some MecGar 18's up for me, disassembling them and shipping them to me as totally legal mag rebuild kits, I would be very appreciative. ;)

If you do a search there is a pretty well devoloped thread with the title something like "Mec-gar 18rd Flush-Fit magazines." Reviews are good, they seem to work and function just as good as factory. They are slighty longer, but it think its 1/8 of an inch.

I use Mec-Gar 15rd mags in my Sig P229.
Never a problem and adds 2 rds over the stock mags.
I have a 17 rd SCT mag I bought new from Sig.
It has in fine print Mec-Gar Made in Italy..

I have several, they're nicely made, well finished and smooth working.

For the same price as a stock mag they're good value too.

I love my Mec-Gar mags. The quality is second to none. They supply the mags for Browning I think. If not, I like them as well.

I stand corrected but that doesn’t change the fact that MOST of you who replied are JERKS... A simple, "I understand you prefer to use original manufacturer’s mags because of all the issues encountered by folks using after-market mags but in this case you don't need to be concerned because Mec-Gar is the original manufacturer of Springfield’s mag" would have been helpful instead I received ridicule.

Like I said, JERKS.

Anyone who resorts to name calling on an internet forum is obviously lacking the required maturity to carry a weapon of any kind.

If you react like this on here, I hate to think how you would handle the pressure of a gun-related violent encounter.

What happened to my post? I surely wasn't being a Butt to anyone and my post somehow disappeared. I'll say it again I just got 2 Mec Gar mags for my XD Tactical and love the feel of them. They are definitly beefier than the OEM's, and like there base pads better to.
