Default warning-pmag problem

I had the same problem with a pmag one time.I FILLED the pmag with 30rds useing stiper clips. The 14th rd was on an angle but all of the rds on top of it fed ok. I still think pmags are the best just dont use gi striper clips with them.

Wow...nice catch on that one Robo. I've used the P-mags, probably more than any of my other mags for some time now, and have never had an issue. But...I've always loaded with a Lula or singles by hand.

And I didn't see any probs with the brass in the photo. They will get a few blemishes here and there just from normal handling, loading and storing. But I didn't see anything that would have caused any feed or use issues. But then again, to each his own...if someone needs their brass all shiney and spot free, go for it. But the ones in that pic looked fine, but that's just me

Thanks for the information Robo. One day I will have an AR and I will keep this in mind.

Default Ditto PMags

That's all I'm using now, I haven't had my BushMaster long but long enough to appreciate the fact that the lips on the metal mags bend... just a little and they cause problems, I've had NO problems with PMag's and I have drop loaded Pmags on the concrete floor at the range with no problem not the case with the metal mags I bought from BushMaster and if the PMag did break it's obvious and you no don't load the mag trash it.
