New ProMag Magazines

ProMag magazine

For 2016, ProMag Industries announced a number of new firearms magazines. The vast majority of the new models are designed for pistols, but there is also a single new rifle magazine. Here is a quick look of what will be available.


ProMag is known for making a broad range of aftermarket magazines for handguns. With the new additions, the company has significantly expanded its product offerings.

For the Ruger line of guns, ProMag added:

  • SR9 – 10, 15 and 32 round magazines; made of blued steel (similar to the 32 round mag for the M&P)
  • SR40 – 10, 15 and 25 round magazines; also made of blued steel

Smith & Wesson’s M&P line of handguns (especially the Shield) have been popular with a lot of shooters. ProMag is now offering aftermarket magazines for the following S&W pistols:

  • M&P9 Compact – 10 and 12 round magazines; made of blued steel
  • M&P40 Compact – 10 round magazines; made of blued steel
  • M&P9 Shield – 7, 8 and 10 round magazines; made of blued steel
  • M&P40 Shield – 6, 7 and 9 round magainzes; made of blued steel

Consumers now have more Springfield Armory magazine options from ProMag. The new 2016 offerings include:

  • XD9 – 16 round magazine; made of blued steel
  • XD40 – 10, 15, 16 and 25 round magazines; made of blued steel
  • XD-s 9mm – 7 round magazine; made of blued steel

Rounding out the new pistol magazines are these from Taurus:

  • Taurus 709 SLIM – 7, 8 and 10 round magazines; made of blued steel


ProMag only announced one new rifle magazine for 2016: a 30 round mag for the DPMS LR-308. The magazine is made of black Technapolymer. Last year, the company introduced its RollerMag that introduced the wheel to AR magazines.

    10 round shield mags …. oooooo nice

    • Scott Adams

      Don’t bother. That’s what I thought, “Oooooo nice”. Bought 3 of them. None of them would hold more than 8 rounds, and did nothing but jam!

  • Joe

    Has their magazine functionality improved to Mec-Gar standards?
    I love the price and the variety, but not if their manufacturing/design/materials/QC are still as rough as they used to be.

    • Steve

      I’m with you, my experience with Promag has been bottom of barrel as far as reliability and quality goes. None I’ve gotten are even suitable for range use unless you want to practice malfunction drills.

      • Spencerhut

        “None I’ve gotten are even suitable for range use unless you want to practice malfunction drills.” Spot on.

      • Jim

        The one thing they’re good for.

  • Nicholas C

    They make a mag for the Sig P238. I wish they made mags for the P938.

    • Bigbigpoopi

      Pointless if it doesn’t work.

  • KestrelBike

    OEM Ruger SR9 mags are 17rds, why the 15rd drop-down?

    • Not sure, but aren’t there 15 round capacity limits in some jurisdictions? Maybe the mags are to service those customers? (Chicago, NJ, CO if I recall correctly.)

      • KestrelBike

        ah ok good call. Definitely CO.

  • younggun21

    Damn. I was hoping that someone was going to pick up the p320 line to get some cheaper magazines for the range. The OEM are scarce and pricy as all hell.

    • USMC03Vet

      I feel ya, Bro. SIG mag prices are ridiculous, even more so than Springfield.

  • Spencerhut

    “If it works it’s not a ProMag.”

  • BrandonAKsALot

    Do they come with toast? For all the jams? hahahaha….

    ….what’s become of my life.

    • Suppressed

      Sounds like you’re seeing all the money pro-mag is making and might be feeling a little jelly…

      ….kill me too.

      • BrandonAKsALot

        Cyanide pills in some kool-aid then!

    • Wingbert

      That was funny

  • Dickie

    Yeah how i wish glock would make a 15rd glock 17 mag. But they dont and i dont buy useless promag mags. Better off with magpul. At least they work

  • Suppressed

    I had some pro-mags for a bodyguard .380 that actually worked well. I also had one of their AR mags that couldn’t even be made to work by the gunsmith at the shop that sold it to me. How do you eff up the most common mag in America, especially given the patent on the original has expired and all you have to do is copy it?!?!?



  • Skokie

    I bought a ProMag steel 5 round AR mag for hunting because I couldn’t find any other 5 rounders at the time and it has functioned flawlessly. Not everything they make is garbage.

    • Ergo

      a broken clock is right twice a day.
      Promag makes magazines that work twice a year.

  • All the Raindrops

    Lol promag. Wtf.

  • Hugo Stiglitz

    Why is it so hard for them to make a high quality magazine? As you can see from the majority of the comments, their reputation is less than stellar. Seems like a pretty simple item to produce…check the specs of factory mags and duplicate them.

  • David

    Too bad their magazines never work and whe you contact customer service, they son’t ansere or get back to you. Buy a good magazine and it will last you. Buy a promag for a display gun.

  • Guido FL

    ProMag is slang for sub standard ! Yet there is one other brand that is really out and out JUNK …………………. Thermo Mold !

  • DwnRange

    The best use for a Pro-Mag 45acp mag is as a carry/holder/back-up ammo for your Ruger New Vaquero “Birdshead” six-gun chambered in 45acp or in the proper caliber any single action army Colt. Carry it in a belt/mag pouch or two, and load your six-gun straight from the Pro-Mag magazine, simply thumb in one round at time, no fumbling, no dropped rounds and once ya get the technique down, it’s pretty fast. (this is only practical use I have found for junk magazines for in semi-auto handguns these mags are undependable crap)

  • valorius

    They don’t work.

  • Mullet

    I’ll let all of you test them. Let me know if they suck as much as all the other Promags.

  • Wingbert

    10rd shield mag sounds like something I might be interested in. The 7 and 8rd mags from S&W isn’t expensive enough to make me consider non-OEM options.
