whats the diff...

  1. whats the difference between the c9 magazines and the ones used on carbines? i bought one at a gun show since it was labeled just hi-point. it doesnt lock when you insert it and the base does not have the small curve for you to rest your pinky finger on. could this be an older magazine or just one for the carbine?

    carbines are the 10rnd mag w/ a smaller base. they will fit and function in the c9. however, c9 mags will not fit in the carbine w/out modification.

    I put smaller bases on all my c9 10rounders so they will function in both my c9 and carbine.

    my guess is you picked up a pro-mag.

  3. holds eight rounds. looks just the same like the c9 mag. sux for me.
