    Are you confusing "pro mags" with "pmags?"

    Well then... I'll take this opportunity to add to your gun knowledge database! It's a damn shame if a day goes by you don't learn something new, right?

    These guys make the world-famous, ultra reliable Pmag - Magpul | Unfair Advantage

    These guys have made high-capacity magazines for a long time, but don't have quite the reputation for flawless function - http://www.promagindustries.com/

    Pro mags are pure garbage, they are dirt cheap for a reason!

    Because of the cheap prices I have made the mistake of buying them over and over again thinking it's only 10 bucks, right? And every time I had issues.

    Tried them in a Sig 226, 229, Beretta 92FS, jam after jam after jam.

    There were a ton of pre-ban pro mags on the market during the AWB, so they got popular and developed a following. But, indeed, since the sunset of the ban and subsequent explosion of improved NEW full-cap magazine manufacturers, there are definitely way better options.

    Anyone remember "Triple K" magazines? I got a bunch for my mini-14 during the ban... had to make major modifications to every single one, and most still didn't work.

    If it's advertised as 42 rounds, it's a ProMag. If it's 40 rounds, it's a PMAG.
