Mec-Gar Para Ordnance P18 10 round .38 Super or 9mm magazine with a nickel finish. This magazine is also compatible with the Bul M5 IPSC 9mm (won't fit properly if it has the magwell), Rock Island Armory 9mm 1911 A2 and Armscor 9mm 1911 A2 FS PS. I have been told that they will also work in the Bul M5. However the magazine catch has to be altered, widened a bit.
Please note these magazines don't have the polymer extended base that comes on the magazines used in the Rock Island Armory 1911 A2 with the magwell. The magwell may interfere with the insertion of these magazines. The Springer Precision base pad will solve that problem.
Note these Para P18 magazines aren't compatible with the Para P18.9 or models with the magwell. The Para Pro Custom 9mm with the magwell takes a different longer magazine.
The Rock Island Armory .22 TCM originally came with the Mec-Gar P18 magazines but there were modifications made to the feed lips to increase reliability with the .22 TCM. These magazines don't have the modified feed lips. While some have used these magazines with the .22 TCM with no issues most have feeding problems. The magazines were made for the 9mm and .38 Super and there is no need for modified feed lips when used with either the 9mm or .38 Super. If used with the .22 TCM there will likely be feeding problems. Don't expect the magazines to be 100% with the .22 TCM.
