Kimber Pro Tac magazines

I just purchased the first of what I think will end up being 5 of these mags. Before I go investing a lot at the LGS, what is everyone else finding as an average price for the 45 mags?
I paid $28, which seems to be about the same as most advertised prices.

Try Budsgunshop, I recently got 5 Kimpro tac mags for 19.99 ea. With shipping they came out to about $22.00 each.

Palmetto State Armory has them for $25.99, with free shipping if you buy more than one.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check both places.
By the way, I didn't like the shiny stainless bottom plate sticking out of my Ultra Carry II and since I do carry it, I didn't want the extra length of the rubber bump pad. Besides, they catch on the clothing around them. What to do? A quick trip to the garage put me back in touch with a half empty can of flat black spray paint. Now the new mag disappears into the well just like the original.

Maybe I'm strange, but I like the Kim Pro magazines. They seem to work better for me than Wilson Combat mags.

I've got 9 Kimber mags that have never given me a bit of trouble. I've also got a bunch of Wilson mags that are just as reliable. The only difference I've found in them is the price, why pay $30+ dollars for a Wilson when I can buy a Kimber for $19.99 that preforms equally as well?

I have a couple Wilson's I used with my old Long Slide. They work fine with the Kimber but they are full length mags. I'm happy with the original Kimber mag and the Pro Tac worked just fine this afternoon. Time to get some more.

I have stayed with the Wilson Rodgers mags for about 30 years. In fact I finally got around to send four back. Four over many years of use out of about 20 I own. The feed lips spread. Lifetime warranty and I had new ones in three days.
