Oddly enough I had a Pmag get bitchy on me on my last outing. Got a little grit in it that decided to be an issue (jammed up the follower). Took it apart, ran a rag through it, no more problems.
This really surprised me considering the two advanced carbine courses that I took in the spring, the mags were dumped into the dirt much of the same quality as on the MA video, and got little more than a thwak or 2 on my leg before getting loaded up again and never complained.
Even the chamber on my AR got loaded up with powder during the Mike Pannone failure drills (severe bullet setback) and was a non issue. Heck of a time cleaning though.
NOTE - A dirt covered mag is a good test of your lower if it will still seat and drop a mag free in that condition. Props to PSA on that score.

I'd want someone to shoot me with my own gun if I ever fill my rifle up with dirt like that. It's good to know that my Colt would run fairly well if I happened to drop it in the dirt or mud. Thanks for sharing the video MA.
