Amazing! Exceeded my expectations.
Okay, so I did the pre-order and waited. And I waited, and waited, and waited. During that time, there were articles and posts all over the internet about these S15 mags. Many were less than flattering, with people giving their opinions that these would not be reliable and some going so far as to say they would be junk. I still wanted to try them for myself, because if they worked, it would be an amazing carry option for me.
A few weeks ago, I started seeing some YouTube reviews, which were favorable. But I still did not receive my EDC kit, extensions, or S15 mags. Well, they finally arrived. The metal mag catch was missing from my kit, but Shield Arms shipped it out ASAP when I contacted them. Got the mag catch and headed to the range today. What can I say, they performed flawlessly in my 43x. Remington UMC 115gr fmj, Blazer brass case 115gr fmj, and Speer Gold Dot 124gr P all cycled perfectly without ANY issues whatsoever. I even mixed up the ammo to see if it would create problems. Nothing. All four mags worked perfectly as 15 rounders or with the 5rd extensions attached. I raised a few eyebrows when I fired strings of 20 from my little 43x without reloading!
I put about 350 rounds through these mags with zero issues all. Of course, your experience may be different, but in my gun, I have no reservations about carrying with these mags. I was not expecting greatness, but I am surprised at how well they work. So much so, that I had to jump on and leave this review right away. Although, maybe I should have waited until I ordered more of them! Now maybe my order will take longer! LOL!
