    Performing an Emergency Mag Change

    Here is a quick video on performing an emergency mag change with a Sig 226 pistol. This is performed when you have run a magazine dry and need to reload as quickly as possible to get back in the fight.

    Pretty fast One of those things where muscle memory is so critical for speed I'd guess.

    Exactly. If you can perform well through practice and commit something to muscle memory it will save you time and potentially your life in a real life scenario

    I was taught to keep the pistol a bit more on target than this guy does.

    Another way to practice in less urgent situations than the one posed here is to do a 'tactical' mag change with some rounds still in the original magazine, which you retain and automatically place where you will know it from your full magazines, should the need arise. An advantage to practicing that way is that you aren't automatically dropping your mags on the ground all the time, risking both loss and grit damage. Of course you should also practice the emergency thing as shown in the video, they're for different situations

    I couldn't see the slide being released in the last few demonstrators. My g20 only unlocks itself with a very hard hit to the mag base.

    When I was a little boy my mama told me,"Ruff, if you can't do a quick magazine changeout by the age of 10, you ain't no real man."
