The p225A1 baseplates are unique but 225A1 magazines are identical to 9mm P239 magazines. I still cant believe that nobody has tried making a 9 round baseplate to retrofit existing 239 or 225a1 mags. I agree that a 10 round magazine would make this pistol more desirable in restrictive states, but it will never be available in CA (glad I have one).I've been on the TGS mailing list for a couple of weeks, waiting. Otherwise, Sig seems to be the only retailer that has any in stock.
Remember, 225A1 mags are unique, and not interchangeable with the original 225 or the 239.
Not the same.Promag 225/P6 10 Rounders:
Will these work in a 225-A1? I've got two on the way so ill find out.:lol:
It is baffling that Sig isn't making these already.
Ok, that's actually pretty promising as long as the mag can fit in the mag well.I tried to seat one of the older mags and it wouldn't lock in. The front of the old mag is rounded and the new one is squared, so the mag catch isn't long enough to reach. Also, the top of the notch on the new mag is right about where the bottom of the notch on old mag is.
I spoke with Sig today. They couldn't tell me if the P225A1 mags they have for purchase are mec-gar or not. I called the Sig academy pro shop and was told the ones they have are made in USA and they didn't think they would get anymore Italian mags. Luckily my new P225A1 came with 2 mags made in Italy. My gun was born on Sept. 28th 2016. Here we go again!Mec-Gar doesn't even offer P239 mags and look how long it's been on the market. It appears to me that SIG is making sure that they remain the sole supplier of P239, P225-A1, P227, et al, magazines and Mec-Gar is most likely the OEM supplier.
