TxState: Consider the merit in forcing your wife to learn to change magazines, and to understand the benfit of conserving ammunition, instead of mindlessly running it dry every time she picks it up.Mike - I agree with you from a carry standpoint. I also agree that most extended mags do not work well. The extended mags I have for my Springfield 1911 were purchased directly from Springfield, and they are crap. Springfield's warranty service is unparalleled, however, so I plan on sending them back to be fixed. In any case - for the Walther; While certainly impractical for conceal/carry, my wife, would like one just for range practice, if possible. Just to cut down on having to change magazines as often.
Then instead of the Goodyear blimp, the pig could be the Walther blimp.How about if they were Walther mags?
Not necessarily true. The Glock 18 comes with an extended hi-cap mag (31 or 33, I forget which) and it's function is quite reliable. Also awesome to see it fire full auto and empty so quickly.Then instead of the Goodyear blimp, the pig could be the Walther blimp.
Extended magazines inherently function on the ragged edge of reliability, even when they are made to stringent specifications, which aftermarket mags seldom are.
