    About time.
    I bought several of their earlier but similar 10x9mm magazines. They did well to start with but showed early wear. I overhauled them with .38 Super followers (I had to make them by narrowing their full skirt .45 followers because they would not sell me .38s of the type.), discarded the spacers, and used the strongest springs that would fit. They are doing very well now. I might try one of these in my 9mm, I know their 9x.38 magazines with that follower work very well in 9mm guns.

    Are you referring to the vertical rib that runs up the inside of the magazine tube for 9mm mags? How did you get the spacer out? Isn't it welded in place?

    How many magazines were tested?

    250-275 rounds is a very low round count, for those of us who carry/CCW the Super, a couple of hiccups = failure.

    One magazine was tested. That's all they sent us.
