The Smith and Wesson Model 69 Series Magazine is a factory new magazine that is patterned after the original S&W magazine. This magazine would have been issued with virtually all of the 9mm versions of the popular 69 series of semi-automatic firearms from Smith and Wesson. Building upon the popularity and market dominance of the 59 Series, S&W created a compact version of this proven design and called it the 69 Series.
With the popularity of the Model 69 series pistols increasing due to the number of police trade-ins being sold, there is a clear need for a high quality magazine for these ultra-reliable compact pistols. The design of the Model 69 has been replicated by various other manufacturers, making this magazine ideal for use in any firearm that has been designed to accept S&W 69 series magazines.

Despite earlier reviews, I have a 6946 and the magazines functioned flawlessly. Went in well, dropped free with no hangup, cycled as well as the factory model.
Bought 2 of these based on the reviews. 1 will go in with force and will not drop free. 2nd one will only go about 1/2 into the mag well. The floor plate extends out in front of the front of the grip by about 1/16".
Do not recommend.
I bought 3 of these magazines for my 6906 model and they work great! Great prices and fast shipping.
QUALITY MADE REPLACEMENT MAGAZINE FOR S & W MODEL 649,669,6904,6906 ETC. FIT & FUNCTION AND FEEDS AND LOCKS BACK PERFECTLY-NO COMPLAINTS-I HAVE PURCHASED A DOZEN OF THESE MAGS WITHOUT COMPLAINT-THANKS-KILO OUT
After twenty years and thousands of rounds fired, it's past time to pick up a couple more spare mags for my 6906. It's been difficult to find the new the factory version, however. I ran across one on an auction site and it was $100 - used was $50. That's just not practical for me. Decided to follow the crowd to these mags and I'm sure glad I did! Reviews were pretty much spot on. To the casual observer these look and feel just like the factory version - right down to the stampings. The only exceptions to this are: 1) The front edge of the floor plate sticks out about 1/16 of an inch more than the factory version. I can feel that edge on the little finger of my strong side hand. It's honestly not a big deal and I'm sure I'll get used to it, it's just that when you've held something in your hand as much as I've held my 6906, it becomes an extenstion of you - you know exactly how much it weighs, how it points and how it feels. It will take a bit of getting used to or a little modification if I can't. 2) The floor plate keeper on the inside is stamped steel on the factory version, plastic on these. I honestly have no idea if this will ever become an issue. I suspect it won't but I felt compelled to mention it. So there you have it. As you can see from my star ratings I really like these. They appear to be extremely well made and almost completely true to the original. Fit and finish is excellent! Cheers!
I purchased 2 of these magazines for my Model 6904. They fit and dropped from the pistol perfectly. Ammunition fed with no issues no matter what brand. Fast shipping and great service. Thank you keepshooting.com
Ordered based on reviews which turned out to be exactly correct. Very fast shipping and the magazine was exactly as advertised, worked without failure and the shipping was extremely fast. Great company to do business with
Purchased these 12 round capacity magazines for my S&W 469 pistol. The magazines are polished to a bright sheen. The small pinky extension at the magazine base is identical to the factory magazines. These fit into the gun perfectly & drop out cleanly when released. The magazines feed ammunition flawlessly. They have the slide hold open feature after the last round is fired. I've had no problems with these magazines. The discontinued 69 series S&W pistols are still popular and pre-Brady ban factory magazines are very difficult to find. I'm glad I found this site to pick up a couple extra magazines for my pistol. Thank you, keepshooting.com!
strong spring - great feed
slightly thinner casing than original but I see no issues
drops out cleanly
love the holdback
great price and 5 day delivery
I highly recommend these AND ks
I purchased my Smith and Wesson 6906 used with only one factory magazine. I went looking for extras and found Keep Shooting. I bought two of them, shot them both at the range a few times with three to four full magazines worth in each. They are good! The only point of contention, and this is really minor, is the weld on the back that makes the magazine one complete piece is a bit sloppy compared to factory Smith and Wesson mag. I do need to stress that this is purely cosmetic and in no way impedes function. If you want to save some buck, these mags work and they are so close to factory it's nil! Awesome magazines.
I was skeptical about using anything except factory S&W magazines in my 6909, but I was wrong. These are at least as good as the factory mag and in my opinion they are actually better. The stainless steel is polished to a high gloss, they feed faultlessly, lock the slide back when empty and drop effortlessly to the ground when ejected. Buy without reservation, these are well worth the money and they are of excellent quality.
Received two S&W 69 magazines today. First quality. Dropped easily from my S&W 6906. Function was perfect with lockback on last round. These are well made and work as they should. I wish I had found you guys sooner-er. Thanx for a quality product!
Along with the great price of this mag they also fit just as if they were S&W brand. I have purchased 9 of them now
Looks just like s&w made it. Guns original mag didn't have pinky rest, so this mag was perfect. Just placed another order for a 59 and 69 mags. You guys are on to something, maybe start making hard to find mags like pt145 and the like.
Ordered 4 of these in KIT format. (Had to 12 round not allowed in NY.)
Easy to change to 10 round so I can use them. Work well in an older S&W 469 I just got. The one mag just wasn't going to cut it. This is about the only place I could even find this mag. And by far the lowest price. I will look here for any other mags I may need. Well made, good strong materials, just like the ones from Smith if not better.
And a far better price.
love these. good price and fit perfectly. Now have 8
not quite the finish of factory but quite acceptable
When I originally bought my 6909 it only came with one mag, since I always have at least 3 mags for any of my handguns (I Prefer to have 7 or more) I ended up paying another $42.00 a piece for those 2 spares! For the longest those were the only 3 mags I had to that gun till I found these. Now I finally have a full mag pouch for this gun.
Best part is they cost half as much and work better than the original 3 do.
Just goes to show that KS knows how to build magazines!
The 69 magazines fit perfectly into my S&W 6906. Ejection is flawless. Reload is smooth. Another outstanding product from Keep Shooting. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I just received the two I ordered, I was very impressed with them, having been in the military for 26+ years I have seen my share of equipment; that was made by the lowest bidder! Good job, cant wait to try them . 1st class mags.
These mags fit and function just like the original mags or better that came with my gun and cost less than other sellers that offer the same mags. Thanks KS.com
I will recommend Keepshooting.com to all of my friends and coworkers.
It fits better than the factory and feeds real good its worth it. I'm going to order some more.
These magazines are no longer being made, they are commonly seen elsewhere for $35 or more. They are not aftermarket but they original S&W factory quality magazines. If you are using your 69 series to shoot IDPA like me this is a great buy. Pick up 3 or more and it bring the per magazine price to under $21! That's a steal!
Fit and function match that of the factory mag. Looks a little better, in fact. Great price. Used factory mags can go for $40 bucks elsewhere. Nicely done.
These magazines function flawlessly in my Smith & Wesson 469. The quality of construction is as good or better than the factory magazine that came with the pistol.
I purchased several of these mags. They worked just as well as the factory mags. A good buy and a good seller, fast shipment.
I got a very nice S&W pistol that was marked just Model 69 that came with three mags. Two were S&W and worked fine, one was Promag and it didn't work at all.
I tried one of these and they work as good as the S&W that came with my gun. They also eject much better than the S&W magazines. Maybe that is because they are new or maybe they are made to do that.
Would recommend these fine clips to anyone needing to feed a S&W 69!!
