Magazine Question

Does anyone know who makes the magazines for a S & W PPK? I read somewhere that Mec Gar makes them and I was a little hesitant about buying a Mec Gar magazine. How have they been working out as opposed to the factory ones?

Mec Gar makes fine magazines, and is the OEM for several quality firearm manufacturers.

It's a good practice to avoid 'non OEM' magazines like a social disease, but MecGars frequently are OEM; nothing to fear there.

Mec makes great mags. Often times they make the factory mags for the factories.

MecGar IS the manufacture of Walther's OEM magazines. Difference is price and branding. But if that doesn't bother you(it doesn't me!), get the MecGar mags and don't worry about it. I don't.
