The undisclosed company i work for has been testing Magpul P mags. In 85000, yes thousand rounds a group of 10 mags have had ONE malfunction. a FTF with 3 rounds in the mag.

just fyi if'n you want to buy something other than green follower garbage.

why is a company that is testing p mags undisclosed? im just curious.

but those numbers sounds impressive. what constitutes a malfunction? anything outside what you would expect a mag to do or just non-feeding issue. im wondering if build quality is a factor, ie if a mag falls apart after 3K rounds is that a malfunction that makes it into your statistics?

Thats wonderful to know. I'm sick of the green follower garbage... but I guess I'll have to stick with it for a while longer. :(

magpul upgrades work wonders... and here you can get them coupled with great d&h teflon coated mags for a really good price. these have been my favorite mags so far hands down.

44mag.com mags w/ upgrade options.


oh and fyi to all you m14/m1a guys... their 20rnd cmi mags are awesome too.

undisclosed because 1. i'm at work. 2. i don't want to say where i work.

fail to feed, bolt over base, etc. the only issues the guns had were stovepiping.

and if the mags fell apart, i'd have mentioned it.

I have heard lots of good things about the Magpuls. Definitely alot cheaper than springing for the H&K mags. I have also been very impressed with the Brownell mags as you can get stainless or chrome silicon springs for them. Finally after a few decades the AR mag has seemed to catch up to the AK mag in reliability.

well i wouldn't go that far :) the AK actually feeds off the magazine, the AR still just tosses the round towards the chamber

reminds me of the whole push feed vs controlled feed on bolt actions as well.

it's a similar situation. if you could have 98K type feeding in a semiauto you'd be golden. sadly for the AR, the most important part of any gun is the feed :|
