I had a bad experience with the 20rd Promag. My USP45's slide would not release or close properly. I didnt want to damage my pistol so I didn't try to force it. I didn't bother calling Promag for a new one, I was annoyed with their product and just cut my losses.

I've heard others have positive experiences though.

Promag is the Hi-point of mag makers. That said I have no personal experience with them but have heard plenty of negative accounts of them and no good ones. Based on that I didn't even bother to give the a chance.

I almost picked one up at a gun show (passed on it) bought some used HK factory mags instead! Would you load 20rds of your favorite SD ammo and trust your life to this mag? I doubt it....I know I wouldn't! For plinking around....sure why not! Everything I have ever heard about promag was not positive. Interestingly enough the reviews on HKparts.net are very positive.

So my friend had one gave it to me I figured it's free what the hell but before I shot it I swapped the followers for a HK USP factory one been 500rnds without a hiccup so far so good I guess I may get another and do the same but to be honest that would be it these are kinda big I would be happy if HK would make a 13 or 14rnd capacity mag that only stuck out a 1/2 like Mecgar 20rnd mags that is what I would be intrested in yeah wish Mecgar would get into the HK game!

The only success I've had with Promag is it works great with my CZ compact in 40. My LGS gave the Promags away when I bought the gun. Reliable as hell. But, I'm quite certain it's by accident, not design. All other Promags I ran thru my Sigs, HKs, Berettas, and S&W's were abject failures.

How Promag is able to stay in business where quality is a lottery process defies logic.

Get the +1, +2, and +3 USP45/Mark 23 magazine extensions from Solum Tool to use on the factory original 12-round HK USP45/Mark 23 magazine. Same reliability and durability as the factory H&K magazine. You will not be disappointed.
I prefer the +2 as the best combination of capacity and handling qualities.

I had a promag work wonders on a Ruger P89 before..... As far as I can remember that is it for a good memory.

I have no confidence in a promag 12 rounder for the USP45, will not drop free. It came with the gun, it is sitting somewhere in a drawer.

I also give a thumbs up for Solum Tool.

Nope.
Stock or nothing.
If you can’t end a threat in 10 rds of 45, u shouldn’t use a pistol for HD.
GET AN AR OR AK.

I'd be interested for trying on in my Mark 23 but "Promag" never leaves a good taste in my mouth...

I have two of them and haven’t had problems with either one BUT I use them at the range only. I’ve got around 300 or so rounds through each mag.
