    Just received some ProMags designed for the CZ75B to use in my CZ40B.
    Fit is ok as it should be.
    Promags base plate is actually pretty similar to the factory 40B's.
    But, the gauge of the metal is much lighter than the factory mags (yeah, I know there $11.00 mags)

    Bottom line question. Are they worth the money for what you get? What kind of experience has anybody had w/ them?

    Going to be using them for range use and possibly IDPA.
    Factory mags will be used exclusively for carry/HD.

    Looking for feedback as to whether I should keep them or send them back while I still can.

    I have an S&W 59 series Promag I use for my Keltec P11, it works just fine. The Glock 17 Mags they sell are total crap though.

    My experience mirrors Longbow's. I had a ProMag for my 645 that worked like a charm. It also didn't get fouled up as much or as quickly as the factory S&W mags. The Glock magazines, though, look absolutely horrible.

    I have solely used promag magazines in my CZ 75 P-01. I have not had one failure what so ever with these mags. While they generally work superbly with CZ's, other guns can't take them. 1911's for instance. I had 8 promag magazines when I bought my P-01. I since sold 3 to someone that was having trouble finding them. With my personal experience they are great with the CZ.

    Promags also seem to work well with the double stack Sig classic series but not the P220. I use them in my P228 and they have been flawless but there are others that I have that I wouldn't even consider Promags. It seems that Promag does some very well and really screws up other designs.

    Pro Mags are a little better than USA mags, but inferior to quality OEM units.

    I've got 4 promags for the same gun, the 75B. I don't remember many problems with them over the past year and a half. I've definitely had more problems in operation with the factory mags than the promags.

    Others said on this forum that Pro mags will require spring changes before a factory mag or mec-gar would.

    I have 4 promags that work fine in my PCR and CZ75. They do have weaker springs then Mec-Gar though and when they start to malfunction, I'll get some Wolff mag springs.
