Dimensionally they have to be the same size as polymer.

Certainly more rugged, but haven't read about many Glock mag fails.

Set my Ruger SR9c next to a 43X at the shop. Practically identical in size. And with the 15 rd Security 9 mag in it with the sleeve I had adjusted to fill the gap, I'm already there.

@Steelharp I miss the sr9c I bought from a buddy because he needed the funds. I agreed he could buy it back thinking he never would. Took about a year, but he came up with the money.

I miss the SR9c sometimes. I really didn't get attached to it much. I thought it a bit awkward and heavy for my little mitts.

I had 2 at different times, and we just didn't mesh. I sold my last one to Musicman several years ago. BTW, is he still around?

Mine, with the 15rd mag and shaved down mag sleeve. About half the width of its' original 17rd size.

Nice comparison. Thanks for showing this.

I do have to admit that in the physical appearance department, the SR9c does win out.

The Ruger SR9c is discontinued, so what's the point ? the Glock 43, 43X and 48 and Sig 365, 365XL are in current production.

The S&W Model 1905 stopped being made in 1942 and I am still buying them. The SR9c is out there reasonable on the used market. In lots of cases slightly cheaper than the other ones mentioned. Gotta have options.

Just because they are in current production, doesn't necessarily make them a better option.  There are lots of older firearms that are just as good and certainly cheaper on the budget.

Ruger has to be the most puzzling firearms company going, though.  Seems like they make a semi Auto for five or so years and then drop it from production, regardless of the success (the LCP seemingly being the lone exception). The model mentioned above is a good case in point.  The LC9s is another great example.  And why do they continue to sale pistols with only one mag?  That drives me crazy! 🤔

This comes to successful fruition, I'm gonna be seriously looking at a 43X...

If these mags come out and do right my p365 is as good as gone!! I loved my g43 but hated the low round count. I will be picking up a 43x or 48 soon!

hughd, if you are compiling a wait list for these, I would sure like to be on it. omchamlin"at"verizon.net

Or a website that I can bookmark in order to check back from time to time (besides facebook).

Nice. Almost makes me want one. Almost. lol

Buddy, you know I've had several and just couldn't like them. Don't know why, just didn't work for me.

My Shield is running hard against the 43X, and it's close. Giving a slight edge to the 43, and it hurts to say that. But I did pre-order some mags for it.

      I saw someone mention an 80% revolver on another forum. Anyone ever heard of something that resembles This? Of course they had no links or detailed info on it.

      This is pretty cool. I don’t shoot competitively anymore, so I can’t justify the cost of one of these, but to me they are an excellent example of the shift in gun making.
      There is very little old school conventional “Gunsmithing” going on at Ed Brown. But there is a lot of high performance, high accuracy machining by quality Machinists, Programmers, and QA inspectors.
      I’ve spent my life in manufacturing. I’ve heard it all like “Things aren’t made as good as in the old days”, something must be right because “It is CNC machined” or something is special because it was “Designed in CAD”. I just smile when I see these kinds of statements.
      Truth is, we have far surpassed any that could be done quality wise in “the old days”. Unless someone is doing “One off” protype work or working in their garage; most everything is “CNC Machined”. And everything is “Designed in CAD”.
      Does that mean everything today is better than it was in the past? Absolutely not. These technologies still rely on the Machinists and the programmers (many times the same person) using them. CNC machines can make junk, and they can make it fast. These CNC machines only do what they programmer tells them to do. If he programs the part wrong; the machine will make it wrong. CNC machines are high drama. They require Machinists and Programmers that are on top of every little detail, every single minute. They require inspectors that are checking all critical dimensions, all the time.
      If you have high accuracy, quality machines, and you have the best Machinists and Programmers. You can make extremely accurate parts that don’t require any hand fitting; they fit together to extremely tight tolerances and work every time. In 1992 Ed Brown quit gunsmithing and went strictly design and manufacture. He retired at 65 and turned the business over to his family. With what he put in place; it can carry on.
      So, what does this mean to you? Well, it means you can buy a high-quality competition for gun for $2K instead of 10K. It also means if you need a replacement part, it can be shipped to you and dropped in without requiring a gunsmith.
      Sorry for the trip down memory lane, this isn't something new, but when I saw this; I saw a good example of a positive change with people involved that are dedicated to quality. I don’t own one of these guns, but I’d sure like to; I bet they are really something.
      Why doesn’t Smith & Wesson or Glock or anyone else do this? Because then they can’t sell their guns for $300-$400. But change is happening on a daily basis; someday they will.

      Have lifetime CHL but will be moving to another state for a lengthy period of time. Do I need to maintain residence in TN for the permit to remain valid? Or is it still good when I come back (possibly years)?
      thank you
