Does anyone know if you can use mag couplers on PMAGs? If so what kind work?

It can even double as a mono pod! lol...

No way, you need digital camo duct tape!

Electrical Tape seems like a very practical solution.

Most mag couplers suck as they let the mags slip around when you handle them rough. This one by Springer Precision rules.

One of the guys in our squad at the Tac Pro 3 Gun Match today tried to use one of these. The top bullet in the "exposed" mag pushed forward and during the mag change is tied up his rifle. When he go it cleared, the now empty mag on the right side interfeared with the ejecting round, and he dropped the whole thing in the dirt. He retrieved a mag from his vest and continued the stage. He took the clamp off an threw it in his tac bag after the stage. I have never seen one of these things work right. The tactical tape is the best answer, but rounds in a Pmag will slide easier than an aluminum mag. I would never try one myself.

That is wrong I have never had the top round walk in the reload mag in my coupler set up with P mags. With GI mags its does happen but I have never seen it with P mags. I have been using these couplers for over 2 years now in training and at 3 gun matches.

My favorite coupler is made from Sig. It slides onto both mags in the middle and seems more stable. But this is just my opinion.

Dang, I am glad you are smarter than I am. Guess I didn't see what I saw. Sorry that you have never heard of the top round walking in a coupled Pmag.
Guess nothing ever happens to you!

BTW, I have been shooting in 3 Gun Matches for 9 years, and have never seen a coupled mag work. Oh well!

What about a redimag or redimod? Either worth the trouble. Certainly more expensive but if they work as advertised I'll bite.

Really you have been shooting in matches for 9 years and never seen a coupled mag work. Time to tell a lot of the pro's what their using does not work.

Here are some posts by other three gunners on Brian Enos using couplers with good luck.

I havent had any problems with my 20 rounders, 30 rounders, 30s with NC extensions or my coupled 30s (makes a 60 round mag).

Never had any problems here with 20 or 30 rounders or with my Nordic P-Mag coupler (I have one of the original versions).

I carry two PMAG's coupled together using a First Samco mag coupler at work. I haven't had any problems.

Another huge advantage to coupled mags is they make a great mono pod allowing for a more stable shot. You mention the shooter at your last match having to retrieve a mag from his vest. Vests are not something you see many three gunners use.

Me reloading very fast with a bad lever and a coupled mag at 30 seconds in.

Coupler working great as a mono pod. (1st place at this match)

2009 Larue match reload went fine again with coupler.

I have used Springer Precision mag couplers in every match since they came out with no issues. Maybe I am just lucky.

I have had such good luck with them in three gun I had them issued to all the patrol officers at my department. No issues with them in training either. Again maybe we are just lucky.

I would use a redimag but I am a lefty and have a left handed rifle. I contacted the mfg. and they told me they dont make one for the right side of the gun.
