    Anybody have any experience with the Troy BattleMag? I just picked up a three pack in the bargain bin (my favorite LGS decided not to stock them since he already carries three brands).

    They look good and I've read good things. Besides I can always use a few more mags. The BattleMag is a little smaller than PMAGs, about the same a GI mag. Anyway, I've been curious about the Troys, I'll give them a try next week.

    Found a torture test video. Looks like they're as durable as PMAGs.

    Did they ever load more than 22 rounds in it during the shotgun test? The video stopped playing for me.

    They did 30 rds after shotgun. Then put a .308 through it, packed 2 of them in snow for a while, ran over them full and empty with an excursion. Any thing that will hold up like that and perform afterwards is worthy of my coin. Plus I have liked the looks of them for a while. I have always just been a Pmag fan.

    No, just 22 after the shotgun blast. I think there were plastic shards and pellets at the bottom of the mag body jamming it up. They should have explained that. I didn't think shooting the mag was that impressive but later they try to crush it under a 4x4 truck but it survives. The video I've seen torturing PMAGs was more impressive, they run over PMAGs on blacktop not just dirt.

    Anyway, I think the Troy is plenty tough but not superior to the PMAG.

    Sorry! Thanks for the correction Q. I'm with you on the Pmags all the way. The Troy may be like the Napoleon Dynamite Tupperware test on the hard blacktop.

    Kwaynebb, I didn't see your post until I posted mine so I wasn't correcting you. But I'm pretty sure the video never showed them getting 30 rounds in after the 22 in the mag that got two shotgun blasts. That was a fresh mag that they shot with the 308 then loaded with 30.

    No no no! I was genuine because I didn't pick that up the first time I watched it. I noticed my second time through that when he loads the mag he says thats about it. I thought they were just loading light because that was all they had in their pockets. I didn't mean for that to come across as sarcastic by any means. Sorry about that.

    No worries, Kwayne, I didn't take it as sarcastic. And heck, at least you remembered the model of 4X4. I didn't! :D

    Hey, Kwaynebb, I keep meaning to ask... what finally happened with your RGUNs purchase last year? Could you update that thread you had? I hope it turned out well, I know he was glacially slow.
