    Default Single Test of ETS mag in VP9

    Went to the range today with my SP5 and VP9. The SP5 functioned flawlessly through 225 rounds in German and Gen 2 KCI mags. I have yet to get a problem from the Gen 2 KCI mags.

    This was my first time to shoot my burnt bronze VP9, and it operated perfectly with four factory mags....but miserably with a brand new ETS mag. The ETS mag shot 3 rounds, and then the rest of them were either FTF or FTE, all the way through....that mag is going into the trash.

    Having said that, my ETS mags on the SP5 have worked perfectly. Maybe I just got a bum ETS for the VP9. But you sometimes get what you pay for, and this ETS for the VP9 was $13 new from a reputable online dealer.

    The 15rd mags are on sale everywhere not that HK is shipping the new VP9’s with the 17 rd mags.
    $28 is the lowest I have seen.

    I was just about to buy 2 of the 17 rounders and 2 of the 21 rounders, they were in cart with Rainer arms but the transaction got cutoff and never finalized. I was going to try again but my gut was telling me no! Glad I listened to my gut!

    I bought 3 of the 21 round mags and 1 of the 30. Failures to feed. Slide won’t go forward, and a couple of them won’t even insert in the magwell. Trash. All going back.

    I bought 2 mp5 magazines for my sp5 and sp5k. Both are so tight and would not lock in. Had to spend 2 hr to fix ETS mistake. Send them back for replacement and ETS has not ship out after 21 days. Sorry, will Not recommend ETS to any one.

    Mine were the same way. Wouldn’t insert all the way. Didn’t feel like fixing them. Sent them all back. Waiting for a check in the mail from them for a refund.
