Magnum Research PPQ mags

As far as I can tell the Magnum Research Baby Desert Eagle Mags are basically just Mec-Gar knockoffs of the Walther branded OEM mags.

I haven't actually used them yet but they appear to feed just like stock mags and all 3 drop free just like OEM.

The Walther mags are manufactured by Mec-Gar by the way.

Same thing with KelTec mags, BTW. Frankly, it's beginning to look like Mec-Gar is making a LOT of "OEM" mags for the Gun Industry. Mine seem to work just fine, so I'm just going to by the Mec-Gar stuff from now on, and bypass the Middle Man. Think about it: $15 more just because the lettering on the Tube is Different? That's the cost of a box of 9mm Ball, Bro.

And this is where I get pedantic... Those magazines are for the polymer "Fast Action" Baby Eagle, not the all-metal Jericho-based one. The former is here: http://www.magnumresearch.com/Baby_Eagle.asp, the latter is here: http://www.magnumresearch.com/IWI_Baby_Eagle.asp, and, so far as I know, their magazines are not interchangeable.

I could stab MR in the head for that particular stupidity, believe you me...

Yes, they're for the "Fast Action" MR Baby Eagle. As usual you're correct Linoge.
