Surefire magazines
 
Does anyone have experience with Surefire magazines? I found some 60 rounds mags for around $90, are these things worth the price?





Here's the link to where I found them: http://www.webyshops.com/Product-Type/Magazines-pt/SUREFIRE-MAG5-60-High-Capacity-Magazine-60-Round-Fits-M4-M16-5-56-Caliber-MAG5-60.html

Honestly they really seem cool but for $90 I can get 6+ standard capacity magazines (that hold twice the ammo). They just seem really expensive and heavy for any practical use. Well maybe if I was on watch guarding a fortified position.

But I guess mebbe its kinda cool if I had one of them nifty giggle switches (full auto).

Where ive seen them theyre about $100. Surefire has a video of them running the mags through full auto weapons. Are they "worth it"? Thats up to you. Personally, i dont need them, and i dont want them. They will add a lot of weight to the gun.

Ive got one. They work exactly as surefire claims.

Its heavy unbalances the gun makes it hard to fire from prone or a bench.

That being said its whats in our hd carbine loaded with 60 ss109 and one in the chamber. The benefits of 60 rounds for the wife to hide behind outweigh the weight and balance issues

Hrm, you lucky man, I don't think my wife can hide behind only 60 rounds, she'll probably need more like 250..... :rolleyes:

This comes to mind when I think of my wife shooting an AR....

90 bucks is a good start towards this...

Far better use of your money.

It's just I can get Pmags for less than $20 now. I guess I'm just curious why these are selling for around $90. Do you prefer these Surefire mags over the Magpul ones?

They are selling at that price probably because the market will bear that high price.

I can use both the Magpuls and Surefire in my AR10 with no problem but in my Saiga AK nothing but Surefire works correctly.

Personally I think $90 is a bit high and I don't really need a 60 rd mag.
2-30's(Magpul) for less than $40 bucks sounds good to me.
