Taurus PT145 and Mags

Posted By on February 18, 2011

So, I have (to test):
* 1 factory mag
* 1 pro-mag replacement mag
* 1 factory mag, modified by me, with a replacement spring (for a Para P14, suggested [http://www.usacarry.com/forums/handgun-maintenance-cleaning-gunsmithing/8439-taurus-pt145-magazine-springs-para-p14.html here]). I’ve also lowered the front of the mag by cutting off some of the metal and then sanding it smooth.

We’ll see if any of those work. The easiest case (for me) is if the pro-mag works – I buy 3 more and I’m good.

If the factory mag w/ replacement works, I need to buy a couple more of those (more expensive than the pro-mags), then buy more springs, then mod them all the same way.

If none of them work, then I will take to polishing the feed ramp, and other such feeding reliability improvements.

I also need to find a replacement mainspring setup. Having to order them from Taurus is crap.
