    I considered getting Wolff springs and factory baseplates, but the cost per rebuilt mag was significantly more then the $19.00 ea with free shipping for new Glock made G19 mags I was buying at the time.

    If you are not part of the solution, you are the precipitate.

    See, I was told that about the ETS mags. I was expecting to have issues with them and the 50 rounder, and they worked great. The ETS is a little snug, but that's better than not working. I ordered a G18 mag and three +5% Wolff springs and followers for the KCI mags. Price per mag wasn't bad. Still cheaper than the G18 mag I just bought. I hate to throw things away if I can fix them. We'll see if the spring/follower upgrade helps.

    I recently purchased the 9mm loader and it's definitely interesting. When you have it lined up right it's a breeze but when a round or the angle is off just a bit it's not going anywhere. I hated it at first especially when loading brand new G18 stick mags but after a few times using it as well as the mags loosening up a bit it's much more enjoyable to use.
