Hey there Magpul! Just bought a fire resistant safe that is not supposed to get above 300 deg from ambient temp if there is a fire. My question is what is the melting point of a Pmag? I bought this safe to protect my firearms and mags and was curious to see how hot it has to get before they will start to deform. Thanks

A PMag should be unaffected by 300 deg. PMag material melt point is much higher than that

That video was cool.

And I will say, are squad cars are painted black (trunks), and with 110 degree day, I know it his over 160+ in there.
