Some dimensions on MecGar Mag vs. Ruger Mag.

Quick follow up to Ruger vs. MecGar Magazine dimensions.

Dimension----- Ruger------------MecGar
Width----------9.24 mm---------8.95 mm
Depth---------24.74mm---------24.86 mm

As I mentioned in a previous post, there is a slight length difference as well. This is not really critical if the placement and dimensions of the mag catch (don't know the official name but I am talking about the opening toward the top that the magazine release engages).

Mag Catch length--8.2mm-----8.3mm
Distance from the top
to the mag catch
opening---------10.2mm---10.52mm (this seems like a possible trouble spot.)

Dist. between lips 5.75mm---5.97mm

I really don't know what the tolerances are on the gun and feed mechanism, but these differences are notable if not significant.

MSG.#15 was an accidental post. It is incomplete, but I cannot figure out how to delete it. Is there someone who can clean this up by removing that message and this one as well?

Yes, they do (CZ, SIG, etc all use Mec-Gar mags). They also make the Ruger mags labelled "Made in Italy".

I have had 2 mec gar mags for over 3 years after a bit of tune up when new they have been perfect never a misfeed in 1000 rounds each. Just as good as the oem mags.
