Mec-Gar mags are usually decent. This one looks as nicely made as a factor mag but holds 17 rounds. That's what makes me wonder. While I can see how they got more space inside, I am curious if reliability got compromised. Anyone have experience with those?

Also, there's a bit of rust here and there...need I remove those ere they spread or can just leave the magazine as it is?

I don't allow rust to spread or grow any deeper. I dab on a bit of break free and then use a pre-1983 penny to scrape off any rust.

Could you expound a little on the pre-1983 penny process.

Are there any limitations on what you use this penny process on?

I'm sure it works but just want to know how and why.

Oleg Volk; I had two 17 round mec-gars for my beretta and they worked great, no complaints. Good Luck, j.s.
