Does anyone know if 38 super mags will work for 40 S&W?
Specifically for hi cap mags in a Para P16.

Negative, You can get them in but they won't come out without jamming.
the magazine feed lips would hold the round to low, so probably might not feed reliably as the slide may miss the round on its cycle. You would need to open up the feed lips for it to work..Find a 40/10 mag and mike the opening, then go to work..good luck, be careful or you may just destroy $75+ in magazine...expensive mistake..
