Ruger SR9c 9MM 17 Round Magazine Question

I was wondering if anyone has a ruger SR9c and has used the 17 Round magazine without the magazine adapter. I want to know if it works reliably in that configuration or not. By the way, I know you can do so with many other guns, namely glocks, but I am asking about this one specifically because it says that you should use it to ensure reliable feeding in the manual. I am just unsure if it says that just because they are paranoid. If you have one, and have done it, please let me know how it worked. I am going to try it in a few weeks, bu t would like to know before then. Thanks!!!!

I have done so with both of the 17 rounders I have with the SR9C with no issues. I just prefer the full length grip feel so I use the extension sleeves.

Used without adapter

I've used the 17 rounder on the SR9C with and without the adapter and it works fine but it gives a more seamless grip and a better feel overall. With the adapter is the best way to roll.

Mine slipped around though when the mag was out of the gun. If I had not traded my gun, I would have glued the adapter to the mag with Gorilla glue or something similar.

With or without the sleeve mine has never failed in any way. Be careful about pinching your hand with fast reloads with the spacer attached, though! It happens. I carry mine with 10 rounder in gun and the 17 in a pouch sans spacer. Use spacer at range.
