Anyone here own a Tripp Research AR mag? They are 120 freakin dollars for a 42 round mag, I don't know if they are gold plated or what, but that's a lot of scratch for a mag:alex::faint:

Yeah, they aren't cheap. I have a 52 and it has worked 100% so far. For a lot less $ you can get a Pmag extension that will work just as well, or better.

This:

For competition and range use, sometimes more is definitely more. Our 42 round and 52 round magazines have proven to be quite reliable and a lot of fun to shoot. The mag body is precision CNC machined from aluminum billet. The mag spring is made from high strength chrome silicon material. It is easily disassembled and reassembled for cleaning purposes. Some of the top 3 Gun shooters in the nation use this magazine.

They are very well made and reliable. But, since Nordic is making reliable extensions for the Pmag, there really is no reason to spend that much for a Tripp, unless you just like spending money, or want to support the company. I have one, but won't shell out for another one.

Then don't. I hope you don't think I'm trying to talk you into it. Get the Pmag extension from Nordic and you'll be happy.

Money and quality sometimes mean the difference between serious, professional shooters and guys like me.

I think this is one of those cases.

(Although when it came time to buy 1911 mag's for my competition pistol, I went straight to Virgil Tripp in Alpine, Texas.)

They hold more than 30 rounds *and* they work.

I have a 42 and a 52. Money well spent.

My go to 30-40 round mags are old Sterlings and they arent cheap now days either.

The Nordic extensions are also top notch.

They're made to hold a lot of rounds, and to work reliably. It doesn't really matter if you're in a game or not, although that's what mine is for.

Yea your right on the money. A friend of mine has a 52 rounder that he paid a lot for. At the time he got it Tripp was pretty much the only game for reliable high cap AR mags (more than 30). Now we have P Mag extensions from Nordic and the Lancer 48 round mags. Both work great and cost a lot less. I see no reason to get the Tripp mag anymore.

This mag coupler from Nordic cost only 25 bucks at www.brownells.com
