It boils down to everyone having a very small sample size, of what is basically a hand-built gun, containing a pile of variation.

Run it up, until you blow it up, then back it down a bit.

Interesting, while I’m surprised, I don’t doubt your experience, and I don't have a 357 Automag, so I can’t comment on that at all. 

I actually shoot my North Hollywood more than the 180-D and I have been using it with the new mags most of the time.  

I also did limited testing of the original mags in the 180-D, and I didn’t have a problem, but I also don’t see any reason to be using 50 year old mags that are difficult to replace.   

I shoot 50-100 rounds of 44 Automag a month, so in my sample of two pistols, I have a pretty good feel for how they work. 

As for the triple K.  I bought one for testing, it didn’t work as delivered, but has been running fine with the Wolff spring replacement. 

For what it is worth, my load is more than a 100 FPS slower than current SBR load, and finding a milder load that was 100% reliable took a lot of testing. I was looking for a 1250 fps load for long life, but I couldn’t get 100% reliability there.   But the reliability problems were not magazine related. 

Having said all that, I will order some more new mags if they ever open the store again.

JFleisher64, did Rob send you two magazines, with your Automag? I received mine a month earlier, with only one magazine. Rob said they have a shortage of magazines, and were only sending one with each gun, until the supply catches up with demand. I am still waiting on my second magazine.

I received 2x magazines with mine. I am still waiting on the wood grips, and the presentation case.

I ordered the G10 grips, but the gun came with the wood ones. I called Rob, and he just sent me a pair of G10 ones. He said there was some confusion by the assemblers, on what guns got what. I got my presentation case, right when I ordered the gun in 2020. It was sitting under my workbench for 3 years.

I'll have to poke Rob about a second magazine.  All of my original mags work in the new gun with the same loads the original gets.
