Just saw these on Delta Force. I've never heard of them before. Anyone know anything about them? Troy ???

I have one as a collector's item. Not sure if it is practical for anything else.

I have two of the 30/45 mags. The spring is weak and the mags jam like a bitch. Also, they have a rib that keeps them from locking up in most of my AR's. They look cool but that's about it.

I have a few. They work just as well as any other Thermold. They feed 30 or 45 rounds fine at the range. Whatever your experience is with Thermold it will be with these.

Sorry, I've never used mine. I dn't see why it woudn't work, although it would be very long in the 45 rd. configuration.

I have five of the 30/45 round Thermolds. None of them will function in my Colt M4. The mags can not be seated with the bolt closed. They can only be seated when the bolt is locked to the rear and then the feed lips prevent the bolt from closing. In my Colt A2 I have the same seating problem. Once the magazine is seated it will function in the A2 but you can feel the drag of the feed lips on the bolt. You can even see plastic filings coming off the lips.

I have used a few and they have worked fine, but I did have 2 springs break...wasn't that not supposed to happen with these? What it actually looks like to me is that the springs had a flaw in them as they had a little rust showing half way thru the break point. I have extended them quite a few times and non of them have broken tabs. Replaced the springs with the ones from some junk 40's I had lying around. They run fine now with 30 or 45 rnds.

I have one and it works great with 45 rounds loaded. I don't use it much, but when I do it's as reliable as my 30 round GI mags. Although, it certainly won't last as long as a GI mag.
