Smith 4505, it was a tank and I'll likely never come across one again. But I like shooting my P220 better. Model 60, nice piece, but chewed my hand up. Prefer to carry and shoot the Kahr CM9. Model 64, it was DAO, got my Model 10.

I can understand selling the Model 60 if it tears up your hand, and the Model 64's that have had their hammer spur lopped off are an abomination

I found them at Gander Mountain and my father offered to add them to the stuff he was picking up. Also, I've never come across any Mec-Gar mags for the Smith, and I tend not to buy things off of the internet unless I have to.

You're forgetting mine is an older stamped slide SIG. It weighs a good 1/2 lb less than a standard 1911. The 4505 was about 3 oz heavier than a standard 1911. So not quite a 3/4 lb difference.

You should order one, if they are not in your area. The quality over a Pro-mag is major. I've used them in just about all of my pistols.

No, I didn't even know which P220 you had

I will. From what I am seeing on Midway they only cost a few dollars more than Promag magazines, and if they're as high quality as you say, I will be getting more than my money's worth.

I posted a pic, but it was a long time ago. The newer SIGs can suck it.

I remember the (NIB) P220 I fooled with a few years back feeling like a brick with a pistol grip, but that probably wouldn't have been the case if it had been loaded.

I bought an extended Promag for the 4505. (Mecgar didn't make one) My XD also came with one, there's a difference in the steel they use. You pay a little extra but you get a lot more I feel.

If I end up with a whole bunch of S&W Model 59 pattern magazines, I'm going to end up acquiring some more guns that take them, like a Kel tec Sub 2000, Marlin Camp 9, another 9mm Smith, Daewoo DP51, etc

I found my speedloaders a minute ago. Turns out that trying to reload with them left-handed kind of sucks. Maybe I should try using speed strips
