This may be a dumb question, but it may make a difference to my next firearm purchase. I noticed that the Ruger and S&W 9mm magazines are not all that different. The Ruger magazines have a small hole in them in a certain spot for locking into the gun, the S&W have the hole in another spot, but the general size and shape seem remarkably similar, even the lips. It would seem that even though you can't interchange them, they aren't too far apart. So my question is this: are there any other guns that use the same magazine as S&W? I know the Marlin Camp 9 carbine is one, but I'm thinking of 9mm handguns.
