After switching the top-end of my Open Gun to 9mm Major, one of the problems I’ve been having is magazines. I only have three 170mm magazines and one of them is a SPS version which although reliable with 38 super, is not with 9mm major because of the overall length (OAL) and the rim in the case. The most reliable magazines are the STI and SV magazines. With the STI, you need an additional “spacer” to make the magazines work with 9mm Major. For SV, you don’t need to because of the construction of the magazine tube.
I chose to go with all SVs so I don’t have to mess with adding spacers. I found a seller online who still had the old style SV magazine tubes and got them for $150. yes, $150 just for the tube!!
Nice and shiny.
$210 for ONE magazine. Yes, shooting USPSA Open Division is bloody expensive!!!
