I purchased 3 Smith 16 round mags for my P99. They don't seem to be the same quality as the Walther 15 rounders. I have not function tested them yet. Any feed back on their reliability would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I've used them in mine and they worked fine. Seem the same qualtiy to me honestly. Either way, they worked fine. Walther mags aren't all that different in price though.

They work just fine for me.

They are of the same workmanship as the older P99 magazines. The newer P99 mags have the ribs built into the body now. Which I think is a better design. It prevents the bowing out effect that the older magazines experience.

Thanks for the replies. My 2 Walther mags have the ribs and a better finish. The Smith mags don't have the ribs and I was just wondering if they were ok.

Thanks again.

They should work fine as MecGar makes those mags for both walther and S&W. I have two smiths myself that I use in my walther and to date they have functioned flawlessly.

The metal is also cut differently in the area in front of the feed lips, but they're $30 instead of $40. I have a couple but I'll probably just buy the p99 mags from now on just because it gives me the warm and fuzzies.

Went to the range today (Monday) and function tested the Smith Mags. They worked just fine. No problems whatsoever.
