I have no issue running the poly's. They are pretty tough.

    This side of Armageddon you're likely right, poly is just fine

    That's good news. Just got home from a business trip today but will try and fire a few rounds in the morning to see what my steel mags do. I did throw them in the gun and have the front to back movement but not much side to side.

    Ok, sorry for the delay but I took some measurements. All mag measurements were taken on the top side of the mag catch side cut out.

    MKE 1.001"
    HK Steel .996"
    Pro-Mag .986"

    Just to check, I also measured the inside width of the mag well.

    Rear, near the mag catch 1.074"
    Middle 1.046"
    Front 1.079"

    Looks like I could compress the mag well a tiny bit if I felt so inclined. I may try it one day but with only roughly .03" to work with it may not be worth it.

    It is amazing how much rattle/play the .005" difference between the MKE and HK mag causes.

    The poly mags are more durable than aluminum mags, without a doubt. Either side of Armageddon, you'll be good to go.
