    Just got some Mecgar mags for P226. It is 18rd, flush fit.
    On the package it says it's anti friction coating. Is this similar to Beretta's PVD sand resistant finish?


    Not sure what they use on the Beretta mags, they're shiny and doesn't seem to wear off much.

    The MG mags I have used seem to be some really high gloss bluing. Wears off real easily too.

    Regardless of the coating, MecGar magazines are every bit as good as the factory offerings (and for many pistols, MecGars are the factory offerings!).

    I run Mec-Gars thru my CZs. They are the factory mag for half the price. They all seem to be wearing the same...hardly any wear.

    In fact I'm pretty sure Mec-Gar is the OEM for both SIG and Beretta at present.

    I've never had problems with MecGar mags. IMO, I think the stainless reject and reload quicker which is why I switched all my 229 mags to stainless for competition shooting means only. Maybe the anti-friction is something new for wear resistance and could help with speed reloading if needed.
