    Are you sure they are 40 S&W mags? Reason I ask is all my 40 mags are 10 rounders not 8.

    Will the 40 go into them? As that looks like the 8 round C9 9mm mag. It sure does not like a Hi-Point 40 mag

    Oh ya... Get your mags straight from Bee Miller. They have the best buys. And you get it straight from the maker

    yes it will load, when i was looking for the link i noticed that the clip doesnt look the same as the pic, it doesn't have the holes, it is solid like the 45.

    I would not think an 8 round mag would be long enough to reach the mag release clip that holds the mag in place

    This is for an older JC 40 S&W. Not a JCP. As of now, all JCP and JHP have the grip extentions.

    I've got a couple of band new ones I could make a deal on. Would like to get what I've got in them plus shipping. Don't use them anymore for mine I use converted Chip McCormicks from my 1911s.
