I bought one of these bad boys on a blind buy. I just wanted to save a bit on a Ruger mag (which are made in Italy btw (I have no problem with foreign-made parts or products - I drive a Honda)) so I decided to get a mag from the much maligned ProMag for the good 'ole USA. This 6-round mag w/extension worked great. It feels a bit different from the Ruger mags (I have 2 Ruger mags) when inserting it, but it does the job well and it costs about 5 dollars less than the standard Ruger mag. You have to push in the Ruger mags with a bit of force to get them fully into the LCP. The ProMag magazine slides in smoothly. There was something else "different" I noticed while shooting but I can't remember. Anyway, I highly recommend it. I do need to mention that I only put a total of 14 rounds through it so I didn't perform an extensive stress test.
YOMV...but I stay away from Promag mags like the plague. I have 3 different ones for my P89 and they ALL have FTF problems. While your Promag mag is fine for practice, in my opinion for a carry gun, don't trust anything but a factory mag that you haven't shot extensively to proof test.
Mecgar mags are factory mags for Ruger BTW, they make them in Italy for Ruger.
I put another 40 or so rounds through this promag magazine. I used Monarch .380 hollow points and round nose. I even alternated the rounds in the magazine. Absolutely no problems. No fail to feeds, fail to ejects, or fail to fire. I think this is an excellent magazine for the LCP.
