    I have both the factory ones, they are Mec-Gars with the Beretta names on them, along with a couple of the Pro Mag 17 round ones, and it took some playing with the Pro Mags to get them working 100%, but they do seem to work fine now. I have some military ones, can't remember who makes them, they have a rough grey finish on them, and they needed to have the followers polished up and the insides cleaned with a wire brush to get them to work well at all. Just go with the Mec-Gar's or factory, and CDNN is a good place to get them, or maybe on Gunbroker or Auction Arms.

    Easy: Mec-Gar.

    For 92FS, I've bought the 18 round ones from Midway and Cheaper Than Dirt, and they work great. They cost $25.

    Mec-Gar seems to be the way to go with pistol mags. My friends new Sig came with two Mec-Gar mags.

    I see plenty of surplus military Beretta mags at surplus stores, gunshows, and pawn shops that usually sell for between $10 to $20. Most are the newer Checkmate mags, but you can usually find decent condition factory mags if you hard enough.

    I would avoid Checkmate magazines for the Beretta 92. The problems the military had with Checkmate magazines is no secret. There is a reason the military has been dumping these magazines.

    Stick to factory or MEC-GAR magazines for the 92 for best results.

    No pro mags. Get the new mec-gar 18 rd mags
    Topgun supply or cdnn, Buy the good ones and your set. I had to replace springs in my new mags that came with 92f after one use. So just buy the good mags and avoid the problems.

    When I bought my 92FS two years ago, I started loading up on mags. No doubt, the MecGars are excellent...I have an 18rd and and a 20 rd MecGar. I also have a couple of the sand resistant Beretta mags, and the are also top grade mags.
    I did buy five Checkmate mags very cheap off ar15.com's equipment exchange. They were brand new, and I think I paid $25 for 5....they have also worked perfectly for me. In fact, I have a couple Checkmates that have been fully loaded for a year, and they seem to work fine.
    If you look around, you do find used OEM Beretta mags cheap sometimes...I bought four which came in a Bianchi four-mag pouch for $40 of GunBroker...they varried from like new to finish worn, but all four worked perfectly. The mag pouch alone was worth it.

    Me too... surplus grey parkerized (I think) checkmate 15-rd mags have run fine for me. Just don't dump sand in them. :D

    I also love the mec-gars.
