Received my two Pmags from Midway in the mail today!

I think that when the supply pipeline fills back up, and no one is waiting for them, I'll order a 10-pack of them from Brownell's.

Loc... Do you own a Bushmaster lower by chance?

I'm wondering if the P Mags "drop clear" when ejected?

I have a Troy Industries poly that does but I've heard they are a bit thinner than P Mags?

With "mil spec" it should not matter but I've got several old GI 30's that are a real tight fit and must be yanked out.

Tack

I have an older Bushy Dissapator and two Colts. (LE6940 and early 70s vintage SP-1)

So far, I've used Colt, Sterling and Adventure Line (surplus) mags in all three with no problems.

I haven't had a chance to shoot with the Pmags yet, but they slip in and drop out easily in all three rifles.

I'll know more when I get to the range next week.

Great...

The Troy mad I just picked up is my first poly mag. Always run GI mags before and have always been leery of plastic but they keep getting good reviews so I figured I'd give em a try.

I'll be trying the Troy on Monday.

Memorial Day... Honoring our fallen brothers by shooting tiny groups with a highly modified version of our US Battle Rifle is IMHO, a great way to do it.

I used pmags on this range report. Only problem was when I had the pmag touching the table while shooting. The AR would not lock back after last round fired. Worked fine after adjusting the rifle. I was firing 2 round (for hunting) and 20 round pmags.

I was bit leery of them as well.
But a couple of young fellows that served in the sandbox joined my Legion Post and they swear by them. Bought them "out of pocket" to carry on patrol instead of their "issue" mags.

That convinced me to give them a try.
