    I know they're relatively scarce, but I've got one, and I think 3-4 others
    on here have one...Numrich has a LIMITED supply of Megastar 45 12-rd mags.
    I've got two on the way now, Letter Carrier will probably bonk me onna head
    with 'em Monday :)

    Thanks for pulling this back up, I did need to update it...

    Ok, got the mags in, the Blued mag worked as usual.

    The Parkerized one, on the other hand, has about the hardest
    spring in a mag I've ever run across...so much so that I'm thinking
    that it may be in backwards...can only fit 7 of 12 rounds into it.
    I have NEVER needed an Uplula before, but now I'm trying to
    figure out where mine is because without it, this mag is
    impossible to fully load by hand.

    I'm hoping it's just a hard spring, or a reversed one.
    Will find out after my next range visit...

    Anyone out there know where I can get Model 1908 .380 ACP Colt Pocket Hammerless magazines for not a ton of money? Aftermarket is fine ...

    Something weird about that Parkerized mag...
    took it to the range, and after the first bangbang round,
    decided to take a break and take the mag apart...it's odd.
    The mag spring is a VERY tight fit...a square-shaped spring...
    same for the little nipple plate at the bottom, very tight fit.

    After wresting with it for about 15 minutes, got it functional for 11 rounds,
    not the 12 that's on the side...but that's better than it was ;)
    At this point I think it was a simple misalignment, and a really tight unused
    spring causing the problem, as it was loaded twice with 11 rounds, but could
    not manage the 12th round...but it'll do for now.

    Not entirely sure that the spring is the right one...
    the other two mags have slightly rounder springs...
    May swap in a Glock spring or something when I get a chance...
