Primo Mags

Is anyone familiar with Primo mags. I have an opportunity to buy a box full of mags in plastic packaging with stickers on them that just read “Primo” followed by what gun they are for, which are Browning Hi Power, Beretta 92, Sig 226 and Sig 229. They are all standard capacity (13 and 15 rounds). Not familiar with the brand and quality.

Never heard of them and can't find any info on them. Kind of an important component of the operating system to take a chance on, no?

That’s why I’m asking here.

Are you positive the brand name is "Primo"?

I've been shooting Hi Powers since 1980 and have never heard of 'em.

I’m not. Here’s a pic of the packaging they were in. I went ahead and picked them up. $10 each.

There’s the actual mags. No markings.

Can you peel off that top label? There's another label underneath with a barcode.

Barcode means they aren't all that old.

Here's a link to the best Hi Power magazine FAQ:https://web.archive.org/web/20070302.../bhpmagfaq.htm

Yeah I scanned the barcode and nothing. All it said was HiPower 13rnd.
I got these as new old stock at a small shop. They fit good and drop free fine.
