Did not realize that my soon to arrive Spartan will only come with one mag.

Anyone out there with one of these?

if so, are you willing to share your recommendations for an aftermarket magazine?

I'm not a 9MM shooter, but here is a long term review from Todd Green at pistol-training.com, where he settled on Wilson ETM's.

Here is another data point that recommends the Metalform/Springfield 9mm 1911 mags.

Metalform/Springfield 'Leathams' are pretty much my benchmark for 1911 9mm magazines.

I contacted STI, and they use metalform in house as well. Metalform it is!

Metalform makes inexpensive 9mm magazines as well as the ones with the built in feed ramp and front crease. You want the latter and not the former.

The Metalform included with mine and the checkmate I bought both have worked great. The Mec Gar I bought is junk, and I use it to practice clearing malfunctions at the range.

I hear great things about Wilson's, but I've yet to try one in my Spartan. Been meaning to, but the ~$45 price tag (plus shipping- can't find any locally) makes me cringe.

I only use Wilson ETM 9mm mags in my Spartan 4 9mm and my Springfield 1911 9mm
