The checkmate mags just say made in the USA. Too bad Sig changed to checkmate. I was able to move my 4 and pick up 4 Mec-gar's with money left over for ammo. Lol

Hmmm....so, maybe SIG switched away from Checkmate? My 226 Combat was made only a couple months ago. Seems folks getting new Sigs are getting them with MecGars.

I'll post a question over on the SIG forum and see if I can get more details.

May even just give SIG a call and ask.

If u have some made in Germany mags they are dead stock and older , the made in Italy mags are Mac Gar mags that SIG pays Mec Gar to make.
