I finally decided to go ahead and order a few MagPul PMags, will I like them? I have never been a polymer kinda person but I hear such good things about t hem. The price was not bad at all, they are hard to pass up.

I like the few I have. Better than the metal mags IMO. I'm just too cheap to pay anywhere near retail.

Some people rave about them like they are made of unobtanium and others could care less. I think they're fine but not anything that special. Personally, I love my Orlites.

I have some with the windows and some with out. I really like the one's with out the window even more than the one's with. I will buy more as the budget allows.

The ones with the window just seem cheap to me how ever the wife likes hers with the window.

I have both the USGI and Brownells mags but I really like the Pmags more. Enough that I am even looking for the 20rd Pmag for shooting prone.

I have both but prefer my colts to the Pmags. I did upgrade the followers to the magpuls.

+1 it's all I use. And they don't scratch and ding up your mag well.

Where are you finding good deals on them? I'm tempted to order up a couple.

make sure you get some 20 rounders. I prefer them to the 30's for everyday use, due to them NOT sticking out below the weapons so far.
your milage will vary :D

yeah the 20rd mags are the bee's knee's when shooting off a bench doing load development.

:rofl: I'll bet you put a piece of tape on your brass deflector to keep it from getting dinged up too.

j/k :wavey:

I haven't used metal GI mags for a couple years. PMAGs are just that good.

I like my Pmags and I agree with having a few 20 round Pmags for the range.

Unobatanium....nice Avatar reference. Hey then you wouldn't have to worry about dropping them I guess :)

I like the PMAG's too. Been using Lancers lately. The see thru feature is kind of neat. I got 6 of them and have been using them in matches the past few months.

PMags, for me, are better in every meaningful way than USGI mags.

Unobatanium has been around a long time before Avatar.

On topic; PMAGs for me.

I have six Pmag 30s, and am quite pleased with them.

No, because you'll LOVE them. And never want milspec mags again.

I bought some of the 20 rounders a while back for hunting.

After 1 use, I liked them so much that I ordered a bunch of the 30 rnd windowed PMAGs.

You can call me officially on the bandwagon.

That and the DOD, PEO report that says the PMAG....

Increases reliability by improved round stabilization under all firing conditions.
- More durable magazine feed lips
- Magazine feed lip cover to protect against debris and long-term storage
- Optional Visual round counter

Same here.
20-round Pmags are the utmost.

I have been here more than ten years and have never seen this much consistantly good feedback on a product. I just ordered 10 more including 4 20 rounders.

Thanks

I think Pmags are the best mag out there, bar none. Better even than those highly rated HK mags, and certainly a better value (HK mags around $50).

I have had some trouble with the 20 round Pmags often not locking the bolt back on the last round. Anyone else have that problem?

Which isotope of unobtanium would that be? Some isotopes have a very short half-life and will decay to bullsheetzium in short order. Not good for reliable mags.
