    The ETS mag springs can be a little stiff from what I understand. I only use the larger 9mms mags, and only for the range.

    I carry two spare 12 round ETS magazines
    when I carry my 43, and I haven't had any
    issues loading them to capacity, as far as
    I can recall. I acquired several of South
    African 17 round Hi-Power Police mags,
    many years ago, that were impossible to
    load to capacity when new. The solution
    was to stuff them as full as possible & let
    them sit for a few days, and top them off
    as they allowed.

    I have 2 12rnd ETS mags for the 43.
    I couldn’t get them to reliably feed hollow points.

    I have been perfectly happy with the SI +1 and +2 base-plates for the G43. I've never had a hiccup with any of them.

    Run the ETS seven rounders with a +3 baseplate but it hard to get 10 rounds in them, seem to feed fine

    The 12rd ETS mags worked fine for me...until I shot support hand or with a less than perfect grip. Then they choked so I got rid of them.
