I've got two "Made in Italy" mags and one "Made in USA" mag for the LC9. The Italy mags seem better built, slicker, and "more finished off". Could be my imagination, probably is - but it seems like perception goes a long ways when gun-guys sit down and talk. Just my thoughts ... but I think "Italy Mags" will increase in value (and price) as time goes on. What do ya think .... .... My bad. I just found other (and better) posts on this subject. Disregard.
