Wow, didn't really expect to hear such high numbers on handguns, expected it on the ARs and maybe the 1911s. The cost is a factor certainly.... At $30 bucks or more per mag its a consideration. If they were $5 or $10 I would get more easily.
I have actually considered trying to find an 809 compact so I could use the same mags and selling the 111G2. I like redundancy and simplicity and using the same mags and possibly swapping parts would help that.
