  1. Michael j. (verified owner)

    Extended magazine spring but both standard and extended magazines – worked just as advertised. Great design

  2. Rob S. (verified owner)

    The MagGuts magazine parts for the P380 are actually better than stock. Kahr’s spring is too weak, resulting in dodgy slide-stop operation. MagGuts fixes that problem AND gives us an extra round.

  3. Matt B. (verified owner)

    Works perfect on my p380. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get that extra round in

  4. David B. (verified owner)

    No issues, increased capacity. Installed easily.

  5. Jeremiah T. (verified owner)

    I purchased the guts for Kahr .380. They work awesome. Fixed factory default which kept slide from locking back on last shot plus an added round. Definately will purchase again.

  6. Thomas s. (verified owner)

    Helped my CW380 feed reliably…

  7. Thomas S. (verified owner)

    works great

  8. Martin B. (verified owner)

    Didn’t work

  9. Michael S. (verified owner)

    I was skeptical, but many +1 mag changes later, I have had zero reliability issues. Bought one for my shield 9mm also.

  10. Michael W. (verified owner)

    They work as promised, plus the new spring engages my slide stop a lot better.

  11. Dean B. (verified owner)

    Works great just like it should

  12. Chuck B. (verified owner)

    I’ve waited on this review until I had about 350 rounds through my little 380 Kahr. These have been flawless, and have made it into my CCW magazines.

  13. Charles C. (verified owner)

    The kits I received were well made and the instructions were clear for the new assembly but the follower would hang up on both newly assembled mags. I found that the follower would hangup on the mag lock slot of both magazines and both followers had to be trimmed to be able to load more than 3 rounds. Both magazines now accept 7 rounds but one has a little click loading 7th round. Both are cycling well with dummy rounds at this time, what I really like is the very positive slide locking open on the last round. Kahr has a problem in this area. Haven’t made it to the range for real time testing. I wanted to purchase for other firearms but have to take a wait and see. For the price I would like a product that I didn’t have to experiment on hoping not to screw it up. My life may depend on it.

  14. Steven R. (verified owner)

    Best product ever

  15. J D. (verified owner)

    So far racking through the rounds functions properly. Slide locks on empty magazine. Haven’t had a chance to go to the range yet for real world operations.

  16. Jeremy F. (verified owner)

    So far so good. After 40 +1 mags worth with the MagGuts through my CW380, not a single fail to lock the slide on an empty mag. I may just order another. If I could knock a half star off, it would be that it wouldn’t work in the first mag I tried as the follower would hang on the mag catch notch. I’m guessing a little filing would take care of that, but instead I switched mags and it worked fine.

  17. George M. (verified owner)

    Very innovative way to get an extra round in the mag.Very well made and easy to install. Would buy them again in a minute.

  18. John W. (verified owner)

    Initial results mixed. Modified both a 6 & 7 rd magazine with FTF issues with both mags on the top round. Using Remington 88 gr. JHP that normally feed just fine. Ran 5 full mags each with 2 FTF on both mags on the second shot (top round) so 60% success with that ammo. Gun hasn’t given me any FTF for 300 rds, not sure of cause now. Need more test rds downrange to determine reliability of these springs.

  19. Larry L. (verified owner)

    This is the way to make your carry gun stay small and concealable with the added round that might save your life I use this product with all my concealed carry guns they work .

  20. Donald H. (verified owner)

    I have an 8 round magguts kit in my 7 round cw380. works great. bought the 7 round kit for the 6 round mag and the 7th round is very tight.

  21. Joe P. (verified owner)

    Like having 1 more round. Need to provide conversion for PM9 Kahr.

  22. James H. (verified owner)

    Ok – it was just as easy to install and worked just as advirtised – get an extra round w/out the extended clip and they worked great at the range – end of story!

  23. Chris D. (verified owner)

    Very nice upgrade to my magazine love the extra round and I love the new medal follower…. please make a replacement update for the Kahr CM40

  24. William B. (verified owner)

    Got the 6 to 7 upgrade. Outstanding! Took me two minutes to make the change and it feeds the ammo just like the stock mag. Only downside is now my little pistol weighs more due to one more round. Great product MagGuts!!!

  25. Don S. (verified owner)

    My first purchase of MagGuts product was two spring kits for my alternate CCW, which is a Kahr P380. One kit to go in the firearm and one to go in my spare magazine. After a couple of range visits, I have put about 150 rounds through each magazine with the new parts. They have worked very well without any functional issues. I certainly appreciate having one extra round in each. Overall, the MagGuts components appear well made and are relatively easy to install. If I had any complaint, it would be the finish on the edges of the followers. They were a bit rough and I found a few burrs on each where they run against the interior wall of the magazine. This was remedied with some #600 wet/dry paper, my Dremel tool and some polishing compound. All in all, satisfied with the product and would consider using equivalent kits in my single stack 9mm, if they become available…

  26. Bobby j. (verified owner)

    Installed them in my cw380 magazines. They were easy to install and have functioned perfectly so far.

  27. Larry S. (verified owner)

    Previously bought plus 2 kits for S&W Shield 9mm. Worked well. So when I got my Kahr P380 I ordered 3 plus 1 kits. Went to range and fired a couple of boxes through these mags, no problem! Now I’m waiting for plus -1 for Kahr PM9 & S&W .45 Shield! Great product!

  28. Michael P. (verified owner)

    Plus one equals more fun and one more for the little toadie the bad guy might bring.

  29. Thomas S. (verified owner)

    Everything arrived on time,in great shape

  30. Jirge L. (verified owner)

    I love this

  31. Jan R. (verified owner)

    It just simply works

  32. Tom C. (verified owner)

    I put these in a couple of factory 6 and 7 round magazines and have only shot one box of ball ammo through so far, but no failures of any kind yet. Seems like more positive holding of slide open after last shot as well.

  33. Adam S. (verified owner)

    Overall I am very happy. Being able to add an extra round was great. The only complaint I have is the metal piece in the bottom is not as tight as the factory one… it tends to wiggle around but does not come loose. If it were a little tighter this would be a 5+ Star review.

  34. Jerome G. (verified owner)

    I ordered 3 and installed two magazine updates. During the process, I lost a small part on the third. I confessed that it was my loss, not a missing part, but was promptly supplied with a replacement. The magazines work great and the service was outstanding.

  35. Jonathan S. (verified owner)

    I had a rough start, I installed a spring backwards didn’t install the floor plates correctly I’d like to thank the magguts team for their expert trouble shooting. I have a CW380 that I has maybe 700 rounds through it and 450 of those with magguts installed. I have occasional failures to feed from a full magazine from slide lock that seem less frequent after installing the kit and the springs taking a slight set. I have had no failures to feed outside of the first round a loaded magazine which is a known issue with this pistol. So, it works and I feel a little more confidant now that I have a 7+1 magazine and a round in the chamber in my pocket most of the time. A longer magazine and a extra round with the kit is a 33% increase in magazine capacity. Some pants need the shorter magazine, in jeans I throw an extra magazine in my watch/coin pocket and I have 16 rounds in a pocket.

  36. John M. (verified owner)

    The items I bought were for a Kahr CW380. I bought one for the six round mag and one for the seven round mag. I put them both through the ringer with jacketed and painted pratice ammo. Both performed with no flaws whatsoever. If I have a little gripe, it is about the instruction sheet. My mags have the 1st turn of the upper spring in different directions. The illustration on the paper and on line only show one direction. They probably should indicate that turn direction doesn’t matter in the instructions. I wish they made them for Kahr 9mm magazines.

  37. Marion M. (verified owner)

    Works like a champ! Getting more.

  38. Matt W. (verified owner)

    Product works as advertised. Changes factory 6 round magazine to 7 rounds.

  39. Hirby E. (verified owner)

    Adds an extra round to an already tiny magazine! All-metal follower keeps top round better positioned than plastic factory follower and locks slide back as it should when empty. Springs appear to keep tension well over time.

  40. Robert A. (verified owner)

    Easy to install. Instructions comprehensive. Works great.

  41. Pawan M. (verified owner)

    Mag ran flawlessly!

  42. Steve C. (verified owner)

    One installed and worked fine ,the other one would only load 4 rounds.I swapped mags and the same .No phone number to call for customer service.

  47. Gary S. (verified owner)

    Happy! good product, good instructions sheet, easy install,

  48. Erik H. (verified owner)

    Very easy to install, and they just plain work. The Magguts follower is way better than the OEM one, and actually seems to make the last round slide lock function more reliably.

  49. Richard M. (verified owner)

    Not worth the bother

  50. Craig W. (verified owner)

    This company is 10 stars, lost the small collection cup, in one of the many kits I’ve purchases which they were happy to replace free, super customer service :star2:

  51. D. K.

    I’ve been using these kits in all five of my P380 magazines for at least three years now. They don’t simply hold an extra round. They also remedy several of the inherent flaws with the factory Kahr magazines. Since using them I stopped having rounds nosedive, the springs hold tension when left loaded for long periods of time, and I can actually slingshot the slide now (something you can’t do with the OEM mags). Using these kits may fix many of your functioning problems. The extra round is just icing on the cake.

  52. Tim F. (verified owner)

    Easy install helps with last round slide lock easy to load helps with nose dive in mag that a problem with certain types of ammo in this pistol but doesn’t elimanate all the problems with this gun

  53. Douglas R. (verified owner)

    Seems to work great in my Kahr 380

  54. R p. (verified owner)

    The PDF and video instructions made installation a breeze. My first trip to the range after installation was flawless. I really like having 7 + 1 with a flush fit magazine.

  55. Rick (verified owner)

    After a ten week trip to Kahr my gun came back alot better but still had some reliability issues, after installing my kit for the six round magazine I loaded it up to eight rounds each time and fired 200 rounds as fast as I could reload the magazine and I am happy to say not one failure!!! I will definately be purchasing another kit for my spare magazine!

  56. Michael C. (verified owner)

    I recently purchased your 6rd kit for my P380, and I would recommend it to anyone. Besides adding a round, it has also cured a problem I had of bullets tending to “slip forward” out of the original Kahr 6rd factory magazine, when conceal carried. Prior to fitting your product, I would normally need to release the magazine daily to reinsert an unseated round. Using your 6rd kit affords the advantage of an extra round, and the piece of mind that the follow up shot will not jamb due to an unseated round.

  57. Tom T. (verified owner)

    It’s beyond me why every handgun manufacturer doesn’t make these standard. They are easy to install, reliable…and sometimes make the magazine work better than stock.

  58. Michael W. (verified owner)

    Thank You for sending me the correct base plate for my Kahr 380 with the Pearce extension. It works Great just like the others I have bought. MagGuts Customer Service is excellent just like the products you sell. I have told several friends about MagGuts products and your Customer Service and they will be ordering soon. Eventually, every firearm I own will have MagGuts in them. Thank You again.

  59. Gerald P. (verified owner)

    Great product and fits to perfection. Buying for my other mags.

  60. Peter M. (verified owner)

    I shot 50 rnds of factory fmj, 25 rnds Speer Gold Dot, & 15 rnds Buffalo Bore JHP. Had 10 failures to feed and 4 failure to go into battery. It seems to be made well enough, but I cannot trust this item for concealed carry in my Kahr .380.

  61. Ronald S. (verified owner)

    Bought 2 6 to 7 round magazine kits for my Karh CW-380. Very easy to install and the new follower provided works better at locking back the slide on the last round than the oem follower.

  62. Thomas P. (verified owner)

    Highly

  63. Christian T. (verified owner)

    Bought MagGuts to cure frequent nose diving of rounds into the feed ramp. Problem solved.. in addition I can count on one more round should I need it. Mag accepts all 7 rounds easily. Great upgrade and worth the money if it makes your CCW reliable for carry. Fast shipping, well packaged, quality product..A+ Now I need MagGuts to make this for my CM9!

  64. Eugene T. (verified owner)

  65. Allen R. (verified owner)

  71. Sudhir K. (verified owner)

    A bit leery of aftermarket products on my pistols. Purchased this product for my Kahr CW380 after reading the positive reviews on a few forums -and also liked the fact that it enhanced reliability and hold open on the last round. Product was shipped quickly and the swap was easy – at least on one magazine. The other magazine was not easy, as it had a different base plate owing to the pinky extension. I emailed customer service, and was told a different plate and spring were in the mail. I received those quickly and I was able to get the swap done. Took it to the range and put about 50 rounds of various ammo through it.No feed issues, and hold open seemed to be working great. Would recommend.

  72. Stanley J. (verified owner)

    I am very pleased with this Product. Going from 6=7 is awesome. I probably 8-10 cycles with the new spring without any Problems. 🙂

  73. Richard A. (verified owner)

    Fixed my P380 feeding problems the extra round is just a bonus.

  74. Allen W. (verified owner)

    Originally got magguts for my shield and I absolutely loved it. I recently picked up two kits for my new Kahr P380 and while they were more difficult to install, function is perfect and round count is increased by one. That is substantial in a pocket .380. If major manufacturers don’t start making magguts standard, I’ll continue to upgrade my magazines.

  75. Christian M. (verified owner)

    Works great

  76. Mike R. (verified owner)

    Great upgrade for reliable mags!

  77. Ted B. (verified owner)

    I have a Kahr CW380 with two 6 round magazines that I pocket carry. For only $23 I added an extra round with the Mag Guts spring kit. So now I have 8 rounds in the gun and 7 rounds for backup. 15 rounds total in a TINY gun. What a bargain !!! ( and with modern ammo, 380 doesn’t suck ! )

  78. Kelly G. (verified owner)

    Very good quality kit. Seems to function perfectly. The mag cat is audibly more positive than with the stock mag internals. This must be how MagGut is claiming higher reliability. The ‘click’ sound with the MagGuts installed is much more defined and sharp than the ‘thud’ that the slide catch makes with the stock internals. You must install the bottom spring plate as described in the instructions with the lip outside the rear of the magazine or you will have insertion issues with your magazine related to user error.

  93. Joshua A. (verified owner)

    Great product. Wish they were a little less expensive, or offer free shipping or something to offset the fact that you can buy another factory magazine for $5 more after you factor shipping. But that is in no way a negative reflection of the product itself. It is a great and useful product. I just got it, so I can’t personally attest to its longevity yet, but it does seem like it will hold up to a lot of reloads for years to come. Has worked flawlessly and locked the slide back every time in my cw380.

    P.S. Magguts, please make a version for the diamondback db9.

    No failures to feed or eject. The written instructions for installation kind of suck, but the video was helpful. The first time I installed the kit, I could only fit 6 rounds… after reinstalling after reviewing video, I was able to fit 7 rounds. Not sure how the springs will hold up over time, but for now I am planning on using this as my magazine for my cw380.

  101. David S. (verified owner)

    The ordering and shipping process went smoothly and met my expectations. Installing the Magguts in my OEM Kahr CW380 magazine was straightforward. There is an installation video online that is slightly outdated as the lower spring is now a different design. Magguts springs are stronger than OEM. Magguts follower is an improvement over OEM in positioning the top round and in holding the slide stop up when the magazine in empty. I love how the kit turns a 6 round magazine into a 7 round with no change in size.

    Because the springs are more powerful, the top round was being pushed into the lips of the magazine so hard that each round was scratched by the lips. I don’t care about cosmetics, but I do care about drag that might result in a failure to feed, so with some sandpaper I smoothed the sharp edge of the magazine lips, which reduced the scratching of the rounds. The Maggots follower scrapes against the inside of the magazine in a way the plastic OEM follower did not. I don’t mind too much as it does not impact performance, but I did lightly sand all of the surfaces of the Magguts that come in contact with the interior walls of the magazine. I also used Flitz to polish the inside and outside walls of the magazine. Magguts had no hangups on the notch for the magazine catch.

    In summary, I am very pleased with my purchase and view installing Magguts in your Kahr CW380 or P380 as a nearly essential upgrade to improve the reliability of the Kahr while increasing your magazine capacity by one round.
