    Got some PMAGs

    I just got 10 PMAGs in the mail today - they are quite nice. It doesn't matter where you push on the follower, it goes straight down. They are sturdy too. I don't know what kind of chemical it would take to dissolve whatever they're made out of, but I think I should probably find out so I can avoid that. Other than that, I think they're perfect. I loaded 8 with .223 TAP 75 for HD - the other two will be for the range. Next month I'll get 10 more in another color for some 5.56....

    I liked LaRue's prices best from what I could find - I know you can probably get a better deal shopping around and with a mil/LEO discount, but I paid regular price for mine and have no regrets.

    Bragging done for now.

    I like 'em also, they are built tough and feed great. The only negative stuff I've heard about them are that they won't drop free, however all of mine do.

    We had issues with them not seating correctly in a S&W MP-15. They work fine in all of the Colt guns though.

    Mine is a Noveske - they seat easy and drop free for me. This lot was made in 11/07 - IIRC it was some of the initial run that had a few problems...I think they were replacing bodies for those.

    I love PMAG's and believe that they are one of the best (if not the best) mag on the market.

    Just as an FYI, we sell the non-windowed PMAGS for $13.50 apiece and windowed PMAG for $16.50 apiece in QTY's of 10 or more.

    IIRC, one has the nifty little window that lets you see how many rounds are in the mag, and the others don't.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Grant,

    I posted a while ago about PMAG issues with a S&W MP15T. The problem was determined to be an out of spec mag catch. Once replaced, the PMAGs worked fine.

    Just an FYI. No thread hijack intended.

    There is a video floating around, probably on You Tube or whatever it's called, where some guys took a variety of AR magazines and drove a pickup over them. Sorry that I don't have a link to it, but it is very impressive to see a truck spin out on top of a PMAG and then they load it up and it functions fine.
    Sure impressed me, I plan on getting some of them.

    Yeah the window lets you see rounds - in the pictures I posted I've got 25 rounds in them - with 30 the little window is mostly covered in brass. There's paint on the spring to show the round count after you lose sight of the brass - if its halfway up the window, your mag is half full. Pretty simple. The video is easy to find on youtube - just type in Magpul PMAG - here's a couple: YouTube - Magpul Window PMag truck test and YouTube - Magpul Maglevel Window Magazine test

    I didn't need a truck video to convince me - I've seen far too many crappy aluminum mags to trust them. You do a belly flop with a bunch of gear on and those things get abused hard. Feed lips get bent - you're screwed IME
