We are thinking of adding Mec-Gar magazines to our line of products and I have personally never used any so I wanted to get you guys opinions of your experience with them. Doesn't have to be specifically 1911 mags. It can be your experience with any Mec-Gar mag such as for the Hi-Power, Sig, CZ or whatever.

I have a couple of Mec Gar mags I picked up for my SA GI. They are flawless so far. The initial quality is what sold me on them. I will be getting more of them after the first of the year.

I personally don't use them when my life may be on the line, just because I like to use the absolute top of the line for that purpose, but I have to say Mec-Gar makes some of the best mags I've ever seen. I've had a set of three for over two years, I use them weekly, and I've never had one jam. I say go for it.

by that since you used them for 2 years with no problem would they be top of the line and reliable enough to carry?

I just get kind of uneasy (paranoid?) about magazines. I only use what the manufacturer recommends, unless the mags the gun comes with are just crap.

AS i said above most Mec Gars are OEM for non 1911 guns yes they are retagged but they are OEM .. If they worked 2 years for ya im pretty sure they are fine for carry

I think the mec-gar 8 rounders are excellent mags, the 7 rounder solid base are not as good. I prefer to put the wilson springs and followers in those if I have them.
