OK. went to gun show today....guy I bought 6 round mags from last year casually says 10 round mags for Kel-Tec .380 are available from Pro Mag .com...they list a 15 round as well but no "add to cart" button

WHY HAVEN'T I HEARD ABOUT THIS BEFORE. I'll call them Monday...sounds too good to be true.

:)

OK, thanks for replies but 11 rounds in the 380 is appealing...has anyone taken the critical moving parts from a Kel-Tec factory mag and installed them in the 10 round promag magazine...not unreasonable considering the amount of Fluffing and Buffing that these pistols have seen ???

You might be able to get one to work, but I wouldn't bet on it. The only Promag that worked for me I sent to KelTekCajun when he bought his AR. With enough fluffing and buffing and cursing and screaming you may just get one function in an already finicky gun. That doesn't mean I would trust my life to it though. Maybe for a range toy...

I don't think ProMag has made a reliable magazine for any manufacturer yet have they? Why is everyone obsessed with putting so many rounds in one mag? Why not just buy 2 extra mags to carry, and practice the mag swap over and over until you get it down to 1.5 seconds like all the 1911 users have to, since most of them only hold 7 rounds also? Just a thought?

I bought a Promag for my Armalite 5.56 M-15 in Sept. of '04 new in factory package. Put 30 rds. of good Lake City XM193 through it with 5 failures to feed. Mag was a 10 round (the AWB was in effect). Stuck in a La Belle mag without problem for the next 60 rds. Took the Promag home, disassembled, looked for burrs (none), cleaned it and returned to range some weeks later. Same excercise, with the Promag not feeding, but the LaBelle (and the rifle) feeding just fine. And, yes, the forward assist was used properly with both mags. No more Promags for me.

Doesn't sound good....I'm tempted to drop $30 on one just to give it a try. I searched because the new Ruger 380 will have the option of a factory 8 round mag.

Kel-Tec.....you could sell 1000 8 or 10 round mags in a few months if you would just make one !!!!!

Just bought the p 3at and love it. bought the 1 round extention mag and was able to get a second finger on the grip, liked the extra control. Tried the 10 round mag for the p32 in it just to see how it felt and loved being able to have the 3rd finger on the grip. It wasn't about the extra rounds for me, I just liked having the extra grip for better control of the gun. I hope Kel-tec does come out with a mag that long. Yes I do know the rounds don't fit, just tried the 10 rnd mag to see what it felt like and see if there would be any benefit to it.

Where did you hear this? They only have 6 rounders on their web site. They list a 10 rounder for the SR9 but not the Elsie Pea.[/quote]

You know I could be wrong....there are a LOT of 380s being released this may have been for the TARUS 380 .....

KEL-TEC GET OFF YOUR BUTT...HOW MANY 8 OR 10 RD MAGS COULD YOU SELL FOR THE 380 !!!!!!!!!!!
