I'm testing the 5.56 Nato ones out on my Ruger and PMI Mini 14 mags and they seem to be snug. Anyone have an opinion? What's the best prices you've seen these go for on the net?
I use them but not for the intended purpose of making mag changes easier. They are for shock absorption to avoid beating mags up when they hit the ground.
Excuse my ignorance, but what is the purpose of MagPuls anyway? To make it easier to get the magazines out of a pouch?
My problem with MagPuls is that they increase the width of the magazines, and will not allow me to put the third mag into some of my three-mag pouches. Those Ranger Plates seem like they might work, but for now all my mags will keep the tried and true "loop of 550 cord secured by 100mph tape." Maybe for my next trip to the sandbox I'll try out those Ranger Plates - gotta keep my membership in the tacti-cool club active, right?
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Have used them for years.. As some have said not to pull mags
but for shock absorbers.. They are not for getting the mags out of
rifle, but out of pouches.. One quick flick of finger and mag is there!
nice thing is you can take them off if they get in the way..
