Anybody have any experience with these? I bought my P95 a good while back when the AWB was still in place so I've currently got 10-rounders for it. Just looking to get some non-training wheel mags for the gun.

The original standard Ruger mags for this gun are 15rnds. Mec-gar makes both 15-rounders and 17-rounders which are advertised as being flush-fit. Mec-gar typically has a good rep on mags, but it just had me wondering how Mec-gar was getting a 17-round mag to work whilst Ruger was sticking to 15.

Do these still work ok? I was hoping to tack the mags on to part of another order and this vendor only carries the Mec-gar 17's. Going to original Ruger mags will require a separate order from a different store (and hence more shipping costs).

Thanks.

No experience with them in a P95, but every other Mecgar magazine I've used has been fine. Ruger's insistence on a 15 round magazine in the P95 is more an issue with the individual in charge at the time it was originally designed.

I think Mec-Gar makes Ruger's pistol mags...

Never had problems with Mec-Gar mags except some discounted 1911 mags I bought from Numrich.

MecGar magazines are superior, totally superior to the factory fare that your Ruger came equipped with...In fact I do believe that MecGar now produces Ruger's magazines for the SR9's, which makes them by far the best manufactured part on those pistols...:)

On the 17 rounders, Mec Gar uses a patented spring that spirals into itself to get the additional 2 rounds in the same space. I think the follower is also slightly different than OEM.

I bought a promag 15 rd for my P95 about 6 months ago. Sometimes it locked the whole damn pistol up. I tried hollow point and fmjs. Same same. I got mad and threw it in the garbage. Bought 2 mecgars for only $10 more, not a problem.
