Para Ordnance P18 17 RD .38 Super or 9mm blued MGP183817B


 Sold Out 

Para Ordnance P18 17 round .38 Super or 9mm magazine with a blued finish. This magazine is also compatible with the Bul M5 IPSC 9mm (won't insert properly if the pistol has an extended magwell), Rock Island Armory 9mm 1911 A2 and Armscor 9mm 1911 A2 FS PS. I have been told that the 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 or OEM factory base pad 54152 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.

Have owned a Para USA P14 in .45ACP, fantastic gun. I purchased 4 of these to run in my 9MM Rock Island Ultra Tac. Fit is perfect and price is fantastic. Armscor wants $42.00 and you can only buy from them direct. I bought these Para mags and then purchased 4 of the extended base plates from Armscor. Result is $12.00 per mag savings. My RIA is a combo with the 22TCM barrel, Really don't use it much so not worried about running TCM through these, purchase them as dedicated 9MM mags. I use the RIA factory mag if I want to shoot the TCM round. Great Mags. I almost cried when I found out Remington bought out PARA USA, if you ever buy a PARA make sure it is pre-Remington. Remington screwed up the Marlin quality badly. Still got my JM stamped Marlin 39A Golden and the new Remington built Model 39's can't hold a candle to it.
