The KCI G17 & G19 mags are still working great.
The KHAN 33rd. magazines are holding up too...

I just got the 31 rd. .40 S&W "Victory" brand magazine, so haven't yet had a chance to try it.

Ditto on the no problems... KCI 17 rounders. Their "finish" is not as good as Glocks but doesn't affect the functionality. I got 2 mags with a free dual mag carriers for $28 from www.widners.com

My Buddy was there yesterday & bought a Dragonov @ a Killer Price..

My Kahn G17 and G18 mags (drop free) all function flawlessly. Even accidently dropped a loaded 33rd mag from waist high onto a hardwood floor. Nothing happened. No damage, no cartridges spraying out the top, no floorplate popping off, nothing.

I have four KCI G19 mags that I have been using at the range in both the 19 and a G26.

I have never had any problems at all with them and I am doing drills that cause them to get dropped in the gravel and dirt.

I honestly can't tell them apart from the Glock mags and I believe I payed $9 bucks apiece for them.

I have a 33rnd mag thats worked great,one day it did cause one failure to feed in maybe 500 rounds. It was the last of several mags i fired back to back as fast as i possibly could just to see what she could do! well worth the $20 bucks.gunna grab a couple 15 rounders next chance out.

Korean made is definatly not the same as Chinese made, that's for sure. I only have one KCI mag. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it feeds fine and I can't tell the factory from it from a distance.

Is there a difference between the KCI and Kahn mags?

OK, I sign onto GlockTalk and do a search for 'Victory Mags' and this thread pops up... I wanted opinions on the Victory mags, as I intend to buy 3 right now as I type this....


OK here we go, just bought 3 33rd Victory Mags, they're guaranteed to be 100% as reliable as Glock and to be honest I cannot see any difference other then the Glock logo..

I'll post a review/reply after I've dumped a couple mags..

EDIT: Just to add, I paid $15ea for 33rd mags, also 10% off, with shipping 3 mags total for $55. I won't post where I got them til I try them for myself..

I'm not sure who makes them but the korean made 33 round mags that centerfire systems sells are junk. I bought two of them and had at least 10 ftf out of each mag its like the spring isn't strong enough to push the bullets up.
