Most of us probably won't experience this, but it's good to know in any case.

BTW, I'm not trying to bash Magpul. I love their products.

As Pat Rogers had said that magazines are disposable. If it no longer functions reliably, get rid of it from your tier-1 gear.

It is best to function test your mags with your gun before you rely on it.

please read the whole thread..quite an interesting story since the complainant is also selling patented magazines called Fusil-USA M4 30 round magazine.

I read it to the very end. Some of the posters are saying that it was a smear job against Magpul. The original poster at m4carbine.net says otherwise.

Akula is right. We need to test our mags before we trust them. Regardless of brand.

Don't fall in love with your magazines, they are consumables :)

That's bad marketing, unethical imho. I'm a MagPul user, but I never thought that my PMAGS were impervious to damage...but to bash a product, only to be found out to be selling a competitor...bad trip yan.

That's true. That's why I stick to the Okay and Parsons brands. They last.
