What High-Cap Mags to avoid, for the 9mm Banshee?

I don't want anything but OEM, as luring as other brands are.
The others, there's a reason they're "cheaper"
I'll use the supplied 33 rounder, and my lower capacity factory G mags for now.
And watch for (I likely missed a Memorial Day sale) them.
Who knows, some may show in the classifieds.

Appreciate all the input!!


I’ve put almost all brands in mine. The earlier Korean ones I had are pretty swollen for some reason and are a biotch to get in and out.

The ETS ones work okish, some I had to take a file to to get to work better.

All size regular Glock magazines have worked in mine. The 10 rounder G17 mags kind of suck though. Though they suck in my pistol too, god help us if we are ever restricted to such suckage.

Magpul mags run very well in it. Definitely worth buying at their pricing.

The Korean drums work well minus they never engage the last round hold open.

Keep an eye out for 10 packs here and there. Some places will sell 10 pack factory Glock 33s for around 220-250 sometimes as low as 180-200.
all polymer mags bulge out and get stuck.

glock and kci actually use a internal metal housing with a polymer overlay.

now if cmmg enlarged their magwell you should be fine with ets but still range mags only. rely on glock for defense
I looked into the Magpul GL9 mags, and they were found to be bad. That was August 2018.
Was the issue(s) fixed? How are they now?

I also found SGM Tactical. How are they?

Edit -Botach has Glock 33rnd 3-pack at a decent price.
I have some on the way.
