My Ruger mags have been great. All 15+ of my MecGar mags have been great (Sig P226, BHP, CZ 75). But I've generally heard that while most shooters love MecGar mags, MG's 1911 mags aren't so hot (that's what I've heard from some I know to be quite knowledgable). Yet my 'Rugers' are great. Interesting. Good to know...further research to come probably.
BTW- For many guns...various popular models from Sig, Browning, CZ, Ruger, Beretta (among others, and especially those models with better service reputations; Sig P226, CZ 75, BHP, Beretta 92/M9)...MecGar actually manufactures the 'factory' mags for those companies. And those branded 'MecGar' and sold for less are usually the same darn thing.
