Default Act-Mag, "Affordable" FULL SIZE 10rd 9mm P320 Magazines, Made in Italy

For those of you who have searched high and low for "affordable" full size 10rd 9mm P320 magazines that are actually in stock, check these out:

https://www.hoopergunworks.com/produ...agazine-blued/

I just received two of them and they appear to be of excellent quality. Made in Italy, which is usually a good indicator of magazine quality. They look like Mec-Gar magazines. They fit and function just fine with snap caps. They drop easily and hold the slide back after the last round. Will post an update after I get a chance to shoot with them.

$28ea sure beats $50ea for Sig magazines.

Excellent quality for the price, just not 100% drop free like OEM. But for range use they are GTG.

They drop free in my X carry grip module. I simply removed the silly "tabs" on the floor plate with a dremel.

Those are .40, not 9mm. Full size p320 10rd 9mm mags are out of stock most places and if you do find them, they are $50 ea. 10rd .40S&W mags are plentiful and in stock pretty much everywhere. Same with 10rd 9mm compact mags. Its the full size 10rd 9mm p320 mags that are in super high demand/ low supply right now.

And, they are not CA friendly. Most of us have stopped buying from them.

All mags are drop free.
If you get one that soes not drop, take some 400 grit sand paper and work around the outside of that mag. Bam, it is drop free now.
Mags are inexpensive gadgets and are not always made with the precision of a Nikon camera lens.

I get it.

But I'd rather spend my time dry firing than sanding base-plates

For mags to drop free, you dont sand the baseplate, you sand the mag itself along the sides of it near the base plate.

I only had to remove the "tabs" on the baseplate because Im using an X series grip module and dont want to buy new baseplates so I just dremel that material away. Its super easy and takes literally 5 mins. No skill involved whatsover unless your idea of skill is not being a dumb@$$.

I have no doubt that these mags would drop free in a standard full size P320 grip module. I dont see how they wouldnt. They are super slick and look like they have the exact dimensions of factory Sig mags.

Are they blocked with the "dimple"? The pic shows the full 17.

Well, I just order a couple. I also noted they have a Military Discount. It says "We are implementing a 10% military discount for all current and retired military members. Please contact us for your personalized coupon." I asked if it applies to veterans as well.

However, I didn't want to wait in case the mags sell out.

Mine came last night. The followers look like they're going to pop out the top of the mags. When I insert an empty one into my fullsize, most of the time, the follower skips past the slide lock and won't lock the slide back. Since the follower didn't engage the lock, they don't drop free either.

I'll fiddle with them some more later today including swapping parts from my OEM Sig mag.

Hmm... I have 3 of them now and they all work flawlessly. They not only drop free but shoot out like an ejection seat. And the followers seem to engage the slide stop very aggressively.

I wonder if it is because Im using an X grip and X5 slide. My FCU is standard P320.

My full size is the standard module that came with my xchange kit. The one mag that came with it has no issue. I do have an XCompact grip, I can get the follower to slip off in that one as well. When I look with the slide off and insert the mag, it barely catches the slide lock. If I twist or tilt the mag as it goes in, it will skip past.

I'll swap some of the followers from my other mags to see if it's the followers or the mag bodies.

I have only 1 fcu (from my compact) but have a full, compact, xcompact and subcompact modules (and slides to match).

Thanks for the feedback.

Well, mine are a no go. I swapped some followers and they worked a bit better but still slip off the lock. Here's a pick comparing my Sig OEM 10 round fs (on the right) to the others. I've requested to return them.

I should have added, I tried them in a fullsize, compact, xcompact and subcompact grip modules with the same results.

Maybe I should buy some Promags instead.

The springs on yours look like they are upside down as they are exposed on the outside of the follower. The springs on mine lock into a tab under the follower.

Sorry they arent working for you. I havent shot with mine yet so hopefully i dont have issues.

Where did you find promag p320 mags. I've actually had good luck recently with promags for the M&P fullsize and shield. I think they stepped up their game.
