Promag 32 rd M&P9 Magazine

mp glock hicap

Promag has come out with a 32rd 9mm magazine for the S&W M&P9. The steel bodied magazine retails for around $40.  In the picture below you can see how much taller the Promag magazine is compared to the Glock factory 32 rd magazine. I was able to squeeze 37 rds into the Promag hicap.

 

I test fired the mag with just 32 rds and it shot every round and locked the slide on the last round. However that was only one test. But so far so good. I would have liked the magazine to continue the striations and round indicators along the entire length of the magazine, but that would have probably increased the manufacturing costs and raise the cost of the magazine.

    Somewhere in New York a politician just s*** a brick after seeing that magazine capacity.

    I’ll take 5. Please.

    • Jack Morris

      If only they worked properly…

      • RPK

        I WISH THEY MADE A HIGH CAPACITY MAGAZINE FOR THE TAURUS TC-9 CARBINE. 10 ROUNDS IS A JOKE. THE ORIGINAL WEAPON AT TIME OF RELEASE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE A 32 OR 33 ROUND MAGAZINE AND OF COURSE, OUR GOVERNMENT IS “PROTECTING US” (THAT’S ALMOST FUNNY) AND SCREWED THAT UP.

        • Jack Morris

          wut? You bought a TC-9? There’s your first mistake.

          • RPK

            Yes, smart aleck, I did. And, if you have not fired one, you do not know what you are talking about. It fires fine…no issues. Brass or steel cased ammunition. Before one opens up their pie hole to spew out an erroneous comment, they should be well informed about the topic. You opened your mouth before doing that and so, that was YOUR first mistake.

            Daaaaang. Defensive much?

    37 rounds in a 32 round mag? please share

    • Nicholas Chen

      I kept loading until my UpLula couldnt push the rounds down.

    I kept loading until my Uplula couldn’t push the bullets down.

      I have a Pro Mag 20 round mag for my Beretta 92 that does the same thing. I think I’ve gotten 23 rounds in it with ease.

      • Eddie_Baby

        How does the mag feed when you put 23 rounds in it?

        • Jeff Smith

          I’ve only shot it once or twice with more than 20 rounds, but it worked fine. I got it as a package deal (8 magazines for $70). The rest were factory Beretta mags, so the Pro Mag hasn’t been used much.

  • Jeff Smith

    Has Pro Mag done anything to increase the reliability of their mags? I’ve never had good results, but I haven’t used one in years.

    I bought a 12 round magazine for my HK USP 45 several years back. The Pro Mag magazine would cause a malfunction where the base of the round would dip into the magazine and the cause a jam. When you ejected the magazine, there would be a round sticking straight out of the top. While I don’t get to shoot much, it would happen at least once every 25-50 rounds or so. I’ve never had the same type of malfunction with a factory magazine.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      No.

      Their entire customer base are people who just don’t know any better – yet.

      • FWIW, I talked to ProMag at the SHOT Show. It sounded like there had been some internal changes with an effort to improve QC among other things. I’m not vouching for their products, but it might be a company to watch to see if they follow through with the improvements.

        • JumpIf NotZero

          Thing is… Even if that is the case… There are just so many better options. Really, anyone shopping non-OE Glock mags and isn’t planning on just buy all Magpul… Well, good luck to them I suppose!

      • Eddie_Baby

        ProMags are good for practicing malfunction drills.

  • Andrew

    After the whole Promag/Hipoint fiasco, I am never buying another Promag product again.

    • floppyscience

      What fiasco is this?

      • Jeff Smith

        I’m guessing he is referring to the high capacity magazines that Pro Mag made for the Hi Point handguns/carbine. They’ve had some pretty awful reviews.

  • Squirreltakular

    I never understood the desire for super high caps when you don’t have a carbine to put them in. (eg. 30-rd glock mags for a Sub-2000 or Kriss.)

    But if you want one, go for it.

  • James

    Makes me miss my M&P Core. With Jpoint. I traded it to a nice guy named Nick C. …. Coincidence?

  • Dave

    your review consisted of shooting it once…
    are you that hard up for time that you can’t give it a good run through and let us know if it really holds up?

  • maodeedee

    Pro-mags seem to have a less-than-perfect reputation for reliability. The hi-cap mags they make for the Hi-point carbines are not recommended by Hi-point and word on the street is that they’re about 75-80 per cent reliable.

    Better to just sell the Smith and Wesson and get a Glock. Same with the Hi-point, or the new Taurus carbine, don’t bother getting one, just get a Glock with a Mech-tech upper carbine assembly.

    Promag may not make the best products in the world, but you cannot deny their business acumen. Kel-Tec announces the Gen 2 Sub2000 at Shot Show that will accept M&P mags and suddenly here a few weeks later Promag has a 32 round mag. As soon as the new Sub2K hits the market Promag will sell these but the truck load. That is presuming Kel-Tec can produce more than on Gen 2 Sub2K a week.

    • SM

      Didn’t you hear? They expanded their production capacity. They can make 4 Sub2k Gen2’s a week.
