Do a search over at the SIG forum (http://www.sigforum.com). Not very many people are fond of them there.

I have no experience with this magazine, but my ProMag 13 round P228 magazines work just fine at the range.

I picked up a couple promags for my P220ST a while ago. All functioned fine however one required the spring to be stretched out in order for it to actuate the slide stop.

Honestly for a couple dollars more go with the ACT mags. Other than factory magazines they are your best bet.

You can find them here,

I have some P220 Promags that do ok, a friend has some that he cannot trust.
I would not buy more of a product that bats .500.

I bought a bunch of them (6 to be exact) for range use. They've all worked fine so far.

For carry use I'd stick with factory mags though (just my opinion)

Bought promags for different guns. None worked. Threw them in the garbage. I only buy factory mags or mec gars. I have about 30 mec gars for different guns. None have ever failed. Have Wilson mags that have failed.

Don't waste your money with pro mags and other off brands. BTW, mec gar used to make all sig mags. Others too but I don't recall which.

I purchased 2 10 years ago to try in my Colt 1911's, neither functioned worth a &*%$#! Can be found somewhere in the weeds at Rabbit Creek Rifle Range, Anchorage, Alaska! These mags are a definite NO BUY! :barf:

Cheap mags in a Sig are like retreads on your Mercedes. Did the same search a year ago on the Sig forums. Factory, Mec-Gar or ACT mags were the consensus.

I keep reading that guys buy Promags, get upset with them, and throw them away.

I've had bad Promags, and I'm not a big Promag fan, but I've also had good ones. I also know that if you contact Promag with a bad mag, they'll bend over backwards to get you one that works right. Its a little extra expense to send them the bad mag, but not as expensive as trashing several recently-purchased ones.

I've had good luck with Promags for a S&W 69, Beretta 92, S&W 669, a SIG 220, and continuing success with their mags for the CZ 75 Compact. (Don't care for their mags for the standard size CZ, however.) Ive heard horror stories about their mags for the FEG line of guns.
