    Default Wrong base pad on H&K Mark 23 mag



    I ordered 2 mags from Midway, both arrived packaged exactly the same with the same #, one fits one doesn’t.

    USP and MARK 23 have the same mag "well" and magazine tube/notch height. It is indeed a USP base plate, and unless you want to go through the hassle of a return, Cust. Svc. should just send you the proper 23 floorplate with the 23 cut-out.

    I don’t think the bodies are the same. The Mk23 feed lips are longer I think. I’m sure they function the same though. The same goes for P2K 357 Sig and 40S&W mags. The feed lips are different lengths but they function interchangeably.

    Yes, true and i'm not back-pedaling but i've bought 20 USP mags from Midway and 20 base plates for half the cost of a MARK 23 mag New-In-Package and NEVER had a feed issue with everything from 185 JHP to 230 ball.
