Magazines that won’t fit my gun

Raine1937Raine1937 Member Posts: 1

I’m new to gun broker, I just bought pro mag 11rd magazines for my Springfield XDS-9 9mm pistol, that don’t fit, what would be the best course of action for me to do?

    Buy magazines that fit from now on. Look how easy that was.

    Contact the seller and try to arrange a return or exchange. Be aware that you now have 'used' magazines and are not likely to get a full refund or a one-to-one exchange. You'll probably also have to eat the shipping.

    It pays to research things carefully so that you don't wind up with stuff that doesn't fit.

    Just me, but buy only factory magazines from now on. You can send that magazine to Pro Mag and they will replace free IF you have the correct magazine for that particular firearm.

    I have a xds in 45 and one in 9mm both work great and I bought several extra magazine for each one , but all are Springfield issued magazines

    I guess what does not fit maybe that issue could be solved.

    agree contact the seller try and work out something its possible they sent the wrong magazine to you by mistake. and will just trade for the correct one

    this is JMHO and may not be a popular one

    for the cost of a aftermarket magazine or even a factory springfield on the secondary market ( my choice ) I never had much luck with pro mag items. Maybe they have gotten better over time ?

    hopefully, the seller will work it out with you if not

    just toss it in a drawer to trade or sell later on if you find out what it really fits

    and find a factory magazine and move on

    Sorry you ended up with some unusable magazines. Pro mags are known to be subquality mags. As said above, contact the seller and see if something can be worked out.

    Then buy a few factory magazines.

    Possible maybe they sent you the wrong magazines. Call them and explain the problem, they I’m sure want satisfied customers that will come back to them.

    I once bought a pair of S&W 10mm with orange follower that didn't fit in my S&W1076. On the floor plate it had 10mm stamped on. In my case since it was marked 10mm I took it and didn't bother the seller. I sold it later and I may have broke even? I should've kept it for parts since the floor plate catch is unobtanium.

    Also Pro Mag is what it is. You should've spent a few more bucks on factory. Maybe the seller might take it back but if dude was correct in describing then you bought it.

    I wonder if it's a .40S&W?

    Your problem was buying Pro Mags.

    Post a link to the auction you bought them on so we can see what you bought.

  • Ditch-RunnerDitch-Runner Member Posts: 24,346 ✭✭✭✭

    Just curious did you ever get the right magazine or even stop back to check the comments

  • jltrentjltrent Member Posts: 9,184 ✭✭✭

    Probably can't return or will get little back. They might turn out ugly, but I would make them work if close.

    promags are garbage. Not worth anything. Mecgar is the standard

  • grdad45grdad45 Member Posts: 5,282 ✭✭✭✭

    Promags are JUNK! I bought one that I couldn't make feed more than 2 rounds without a jam. Hammered it flat so no one else could be disappointed. I promise I will never own another Promag product!!
