Didn't want to look through 58 pages on industry thread using my phone so I'll ask it here. How are the E-Lander mags seating, functioning, and dropping free in ur M&P rifles?
Thanx in advance!

I have an M&P and have had no problems with the E-Lander mags. Loaded them with 30 and they seat just fine for me. Emptied a mag with no function issues and they drop free as they should. I am very happy with my purchase, have fun with the wait though

Thats been my experience as well. A slight tap to seat and function fine.

Thanks guys, keep-em coming. Researching for my brother who just ordered an M&P.

Mine worked fine in a friend's newish 2012 M&P15; sixteen of them, no issues at all. He liked them so well, I let him keep one. (Just one... )

I ordered mine from Mako over a month ago, still waiting.

I have a M&P Sport AR and I had to raise the upper mag window shelf about 1/32" to 1/16" to get them to seat as easily when fully loaded with 30 rounds, as my USGI and Magpul mags. With the dreaded Dremel tool and a sanding disc it took about 5 minutes to remove enough meta and check the fit, so they would seat and release easily, not a big deal as far as I'm concerned. Empty they seated and released just fine, no problems. It was only when fully loaded that you had to give them a fairly hard rap on the bottom to get them to seat. Once the craziness dies down I will buy some more of them. They are very well made mags and it doesn't hurt to have some diversity in my stash of mags!!

Ditto for me. I tried my 6 E-Lander mags in my M&P 15 Sport, M&P VTAC II, Del Ton TRX Extreme, and Seekins Precision build and all had the issue described by Diamondback when fully loaded with 30 rounds. I'm planning to dremel off a bit of the upper latch shelf which should solve the problem.

Do you have a leatherman? I used the file on my leatherman Wave to do it. It took about 5 minutes per mag while half-watched a TV show.

So can you run them with 28 or 29 bullets instead?

Do you have pictures of what you are doing or directions? I have a M&P 15 and have ordered some E-Lander mags from The Mako Group.

Thanks - I really appreciate it!

Here's a picture of the E-Lander mag. All that you have to do is file the top of the window shelf and remove enough metal so that it seats as easy as Pmags or USGI mags. Remove a little metal and trial fit with the mag fully loaded. Repeat the process until it seats and releases easily when fully loaded with 30 rounds. With a Dremel Tool it took about 5 minutes per mag because I was being careful not to remove more metal than absolutely necessary.
