Several months ago I ran across a pretty cool product that resembles the old snail mag for the Luger 9mm pistol. It is a 28 round 1911 mag, so I figured I’d order it and see how it goes. Then I forgot I had it, and last week I decided to break it out to give it a try. At the same time I ordered the Promag high cap stick mag for the 1911, and I see that listed as either 14 or 15 rounds. I tried 15, and that’s included in the video as well.
Personally I don’t waste a lot of time on high cap magazine gimmicks. I’ve had great luck with Chinese 75 round AK mags over the years, but other than that, non-standard high caps mags have been nothing but headaches. As you’ll see in the video, both of these mags are servicable, but probably not worth the trouble as a self defense tool. You’d be better off rally round the family with a pocketfull of shells than gimmick high caps lol. A pocketfull of 7 round mags for sure.
