    Anyone use Promag 6 round magazine in their TCP?

    Has anyone used the 6 round Promag magazine in their TCP 738? I need an extra magazine and the nearby Academy has them for $20. I am curious to know how well they work in the TCP before I buy one. My TCP is the latest model, bought it about 1 month ago.

    Not to "brand bash" but I avoid Pro-Mag like the plague from personal experience.

    I have a Promag for my Hipoint carbine and it does not work very good. This is why I am asking about the TCP magazine.

    I bought a TCP and an extra ProMag for it about a month ago from Academy. I have since received a Taurus magazine I ordered on-line and hope Academy will return the ProMag. It didn't feed well until I did a "tweek" I learned on this forum, it won't drop free and now that I've reversed the mag release - it drops while I'm shooting. Both OEM magazines work perfectly and the ProMag is crap.

    Seems to be hit or miss (no pun intended) with ProMag

    I purchased a ProMag for my Beretta Bobcat and it worked almost as good as the OEM Mags. Loading them is a little stiffer than OEM and the last bullet needs a good push if you are going for the full (seven) capacity.

    Based on that experience I purchased one for my TCP for 19.99 at Academy and it caused all kind of problems from FTF, to the Magazine dropping partially out of the gun (had to tap it back constantly). I returned it as defective. As finding OEM Mags is currently near to impossible (along with Ammo), I figured I would give the ProMag another shot and sure enough the second mag was just as bad as the first one. Returned it to Academy and now I am stalkiing eBay hoping to get one or more factory mags to add to the two I currently have.

    Good luck!

    Just received one today from Academy.... I too have issues. The magazine will not go in smoothly, I have to force in. The more I put in and out it got better, but no where close to the OEM. Another one is on it's way for comparison.... if it too is difficult, I will return. Academy was called, and so far they have been fine.

    Not very good reports on the Promag as you can see
