I'm sure plastic mags are ok for range use but when things get ugly, guns get dropped, or fallen upon, used as clubs, ect...

I like metal mags because they never failed me under harsh conditions. They're proven.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

My .02 cents

Guys really don't 3-5 sec rush anymore. Not once did I see a single person 3-5 in any of the times we took contact. In my experience it's nothing more than a training exercise.

Stock GI mags get bypassed as they are not as reliable as PMags. There's a reason manufacturers have started selling GI mags w/ Magpul followers. I use PMags as do many deployed soldiers of all levels. They even have an NSN #.

I understand sticking w/ what you know but you are missing out on the most reliable magazine on the market.

Polymer is flexible and more durable then the aluminum.

If it ain't broke improve on it

PMags are nice. I used them for a while and was very satisfied. I could get rounds to pop out when dropped, but only when dropped from 4-5 feet onto a hard surface like tile or concrete.

I have since found a mag that I like better. It's produced by Lancer, and called the L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine. It's a polymer mag with a single piece molded in steel feedlip. Even with the steel feedlip, they are still lighter than a lot of other options, PMag included. The Lancer weighs 4.4 oz unloaded with the PMag coming in at 4.8 oz. It has an anti-tilt follower that is near impossible to get to bind, even when trying, and is very simple to take apart for cleaning.

They can be had in your typical colors, as well as some translucent models that allow you to see how many rounds you have in the mag.

I would encourage everyone to try one. They're great mags and can be had for around $13 from Brownells.

Same here... I have about 15 PMAGs and 25 or more GIs. The best 15 or so GIs have been upgraded with Gen 2 and Gen 3 Magpul followers. My only complaint with the PMAGs is they are slightly larger than GIs but they work great.

Like some said earlier on this thread type "pmag" in a YouTube search. That was enough for me.

Not sure that's a valid argument, it's not like people are video taping their pmags performing flawlessly, you only get the negative. I bet the good videos would out number the bad videos 1000-1 if people recorded every perfectly running pmag. The "you tube" argument is a little bias...IMHO

I have 301 Pmags right now and its all i use now. So far ive ran over 10,000 rounds through them in 3 different AR, and 2 of my cousins have also ran a few thousand rounds through them. I personally like them better then GI mags. Just because some idiot happens to have a screw up and puts it on youtube dose that mean its the mags fualt or operator error? Also do you guys saying polymer shouldnt be on plastic carry a polymer handgun? They take alot more force with no problems then a mag dose. So wheres the issue with having a polymer mag when a Glock or Springfield can take more abuse?
