Does the "9mm in a .40SW mag trick" work with the P99?

    Hello all, I was just about to buy a couple of P99 mags (only have two at the moment) and I was wondering if the little trick of putting more than ten rounds of 9mm in a .40SW mag works reliably. I did a search and got some mixed results. I was just wondering before I put up the $35 and find myself with a useless mag. Please note that this will only be a range mag, as I will be buying another 10 rd. 9mm mag as well. Thanks for any and all replies.

    ps- I know I will be asked why I dont just combine the money and get one pre-ban 9mm mag. My only answer is "that would be too easy." ;)

    Take the easy route and know you will have a more reliable mag.

    Mags are critical to an auto's function... don't take chances on those. "Range Only" mags have a habit of popping up when it was your other mags that you were needing.

    Thanks...

    I was just about to buy the .40 mag, but after reading the replies I just ordered 2 10 round 9mm mags instead. Better to have 10 that work than 13 that dont. :)
