    I have a trade working for a SIG 220 .45, noticed that ACT magazines cost just 2/3 what a name brand SIG magazine cost. The factory SIG mag, made by MEC-Gar is Italian made, same as the ACT, I wonder how the quality matches?

    Personally I'd stick with factory mags. Even if they do cost a little more, they will last a lifetime. How often do you actually have to replace mags? Unless you damage one, they will last decades of hard use.

    With very few exceptions, I've been disappointed by aftermarket mags. Factory is usually the way to go.

    ACT is also out there under the Novak name.
    They are good mags, not junk. I've used in 1911's and for a 220 with good results after several years.
