Sapphire Pro Range Report

Picked up my 5 pack full size .9mm magazines right from the mailbox from joes1911magmania loaded them up at the range with 50 rounds of FM reman FMJ ammo. On about the second magazine the last round got hung on the feed ramp. I cleared it and put that round in first back into that magazine along with seven more rounds. It ran perfectly. I had no other failures. Still in break in stage.
The Sapphire Pro is a very accurate and smooth shooter. All the haters and or nay sayers that say it is too pretty, too Blue, too fancy, just keep thinking that. You are making a mistake. May have a flyer or two, was shooting some with one hand.
First pic is first two magazines.

Ammo Used: FM 124gr RN New.
