Native VS Adapted TL8


On the top is a MecGar 17-round magazine for S&W 59 series pistols

On the bottom is a S&W 17-round magazine for S&W M&P 9 pistols.

The MecGar is just a little narrower and just a little longer.

The S&W is fatter because the polymer frame can have thinner walls than the metal plus stocks design of the Model 59 for the same grip width.  It is a TL8 magazine for a TL8 pistol.

The MecGar is a TL8 magazine for a TL7 pistol.

The difference in TL is sometimes vexxing.

2nd Generation Smiths are made firmly during TL8's time period.  But I tend to rule that they're still TL7 guns.  The third generation is a TL7 gun made with TL8 techniques.
