Canik Magazines

Post by Maiden71 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 5:27 pm

I bought two new magazines for my TP9 SF Elite and they don't have the Manufactured by MecGar for Canik engraved on them like my other Canik magazines do. I've looked them over and they look identical other than that though. They even have the Canik logo on the bottom of the base plate like my others. I ordered them from GunMag Warehouse. My others were ordered directly from Century other than the one that came with the gun.

I haven't tried them yet. The reviews of them at GunMag Warehouse are very positive. I was just wondering if anyone else had ordered these and if they're MecGar but just not engraved maybe? If not then how do they still have the Canik logo on the base plate?

What sort of packaging did they come in? Mecgar may of changed the stampings on them. I know GMW also sells promags but the listings for them clearly say promag and the pics Janik has posted they do not look the same as mecgar's.

A plastic pouch with the part number on it. Not the same packaging as the MecGar one's that I got straight from Century.

part number match the mecgar mags? Maybe someone who's bought a recent production Canik can chime in if their mags are marked or not. I don't think GMW would sell bootleg mags as oem's.

Mecgar may of started doing bulk packaging like glock, depending where you buy glock mags from they'll either come in a plastic bag or traditional cardboard/plastic bubble package.

Yeah I wasn't really to concerned with the packaging just the magazine not having MecGar engraved on it like my other magazines have.
