Hi All, Can anyone tell me where I might find Mec-Gar magazines in the Mpls./ St paul area? I've messed with the mag on mine and I can't take it any more!! I can't get it to feed properly. I don't have a spare or know anyone off the top of my head with another I can try. So I thought I'd just buy one of these since you guys seem to swear by them. The gun operates fine unloaded but it doesn't want to completely chamber the next round. The mag I have does seem to be a little "sloppy" fitting in the gun. It could just be me, but to me it should fit a little better then it does.
Thanks in advance!

I have two extra new Mec-Gar magazines with blued body & black plastic, concentric-ring bottoms.
I would be willing to sell them to you if you need them for $25 each plus shipping.
If interested please reply by email.

Well, I got a Mec-Gar mag yesterday and the gun still doen't feed properly, although it seems to feed each cartridge a little better after each shot.Mag catch appears to be fine, So I'm guessing that the mainspring is toast. The mainspring that is n the gun is a shiny(?) spring. It does not have any color to it. Could this already be a replacement spring? Should I go with one of the Wolf springs I've seen you guys talk about in other posts? Should I get just the mainspring or should I get the service pak 1 with the mainspring, trigger spring, firing pin spring and extractor spring? Also I,m guessing I should just stick with the factory design weight spring and not mess around with the calibrated springs to try to fine tune it, correct? Or should I get the service pak and one of the 40 lb springs just in case? I shot 1 clip of Laupa and 1 clip of Winchester and they both acted about the same, although the Winchester seemed slightly better, both with 93 gr bullets, factory loads.

Dave, are you OK changing the main spring? I use a piece of twine wrapped around a ball point penn to get the thing into the frame. It´s all a matter of practise. If you´ve done it once, the second time is much easier. So it might be worth while getting a three piece set of main springs. The small trigger spring is the main cause of the famous Luger scratchy trigger pull. It easily gets squashed and damaged. Lugers that don´t work are very frustrating - but there´s nothing better when they work perfectly.
