Magazines for Legion

Simple question: are the magazines that come with the Legion 229 / 266 the same as the regular ones sold in the Sig Store? Or did they change the color / finishing at all to closer match the Legion styling?

Hard to tell, but from some pics it looks to me like the phosphate finish on the 229-1 mags that come with Legion was made to match the PVD finish on slide. Or maybe they're just naturally that color?

The Legion 226 mags definitely just look like the regular, smooth black finish P226 mags to me, hopefully someone can confirm. Thanks!

They are the same.

Sometimes SIG ships what they have available so if they run low on regular mags, they may put phosphate-coated mags in, but they are all the same mags. But I only saw them do that during the real panic buying times during Obama's elections when stock on everything was low.

To add to the discussion, I just ordered 3 - 18 round (9mm) Mec Gar mags.

Best price I could find online in a quick search was grabagun at 69 shipped for the 3.

Most places Ive seen wanted 27+ each, plus shipping; and some wanted 33+

PS several forum posts, message boards, and friends who are police officers all say the mec gars are the best 226 mags. I guess I'll find out.

Might want to try some if your looking for extra mags. Also, if you MUST have sig mags, the phosphate coated 15rd (9mm) mags at cdnn are a decent buy.

The current production OEM Sig mags are made by Mec-Gar, right? So buying the Mec-Gar mags, you're getting essentially the same product, just without the Sig name on it? Or are there other differences?

I just read a different thread that the 18 rd mec gars are built to slightly better standards than the oem P226 15 rd mags which are also currently made by mec gar (if I'm understanding it right).

cant find the link but the coating and follower are different (obviously), to fit the +3 rounds. maybe the tube is better also?

Sorry, didn't mean to imply mec gar didn't make the oem sig mags. maybe in the past they didn't? not totally up to speed on who made what, and when. lol.
