Thread: New G48 and Shield mags.

  1. #11
    I've been very tempted to get a G48 after handling a friend's.

    Some people seem to have great luck with the SA mags. Others none. Not enough to make me snag the gun or the mags. Would I be happy moving down from 15 rounds in my G19?

    My solution: I HAVE had great experiences with the Magguts +2 for my G43. Nice to take that from 6+1 to 8+1 at the expense of basically a double thickness magazine baseplate. No reliability issues with mine or anyone I know who uses them. So I emailed Magguts and told them I am begging them to do their "treatment" to the G43x/48 magazine to get it up to 12 or 13 rounds. If reliability is solid, I'd be all over it, especially since they use the standard magazine body and therefore don't need the metal mag release.

    I urge all fellow PFers to email Magguts and do the same as I did. Perhaps if they see demand, it will expedite things.

    I should add that they emailed me back to tell me that they'll look into it and that they'll keep me posted, which was more return comms than I expected!

    My experience and observations of Mag Guts products in SIG P365 series mags is their reliability is just as inconsistent as the Shield Arms mags have been in the G43X/G48.

    There is no free lunch.

    Maybe they didn't get the geometry right for Sigs (?).

    Myself and everyone I personally know who's used them in Glocks has had success. Including with defensive ammo.

    Mine are great.

    I have a Glock 48 MOS with the shield mag catch and Gen 2 mags, been running it hard for some time, no issues. I would call them if your having problems they have a lifetime warranty.

    I traded a Kimber 1911 Ultra 9mm for a Glock 48mos and light and philster and I was hoping to get the Shiled mags. I kept hearing all this other stuff but I do know two shooters that are shooting G48s and their Shild one and Shield two mags are run tops.

    tha would be a call to the maker if mine did that. Call em up, they will take care of you. I have actually had sig mags do the exact same thing before on my 365 mags.

    I had multiple P365 mags do that.
    No problems with stock G43,G43X, or G48 mags.
