I have never personally fielded any. No one coming in the shop, from any of the Tac Teams or with police units, along with any of the military guys, are currently fielding polymer mags. Or at least they aren't in the hard and soft cases when they come in for repair or servicing.
That said, plastic will probably end up inheriting the Earth after we are all long gone, so maybe they are making some great mags and I just haven't been exposed to them yet.
I know that Magpul
is turning out some polymer mags that have a clear, see through polymer window in the side so you can instantly know how you are doing on ammo. I was kind of wondering if they were any good, but at $15 a piece, that's a little spendy at the moment...
