I have two LaBelle and two Sanchez USGI magazines that I use with my RRA M4. All 4 have green followers and function flawlessly but there is something that has been bothering me lately that I cannot figure out.
Both the LaBelle mags enter and exit the lower with ease. But, the two Sanchez mags require some extra effort to get them in. Now I am not talking about forcing them in with all my strength, just that it takes steady pressure to get them in. I guess you would call them "tight-fitting" Why is this?
At first, when I only had 1 Sanchez mag, I figured it was just differences in individual mags. But now, after I got a second Sanchez from a different source, and it still has that issue, I am beginning to wonder.
In general, are Sanchez mags just wider than LaBelle mags? Or is my situation just coincidence that both the Sanchez mags are tight-fitting?
Any information you guys can provide me with would be great! Thanks!
Take a micrometer to the mags, and compare the tight ones with the not-so-tight ones. Also, put a T-square to it also, some mags are kinda smushed, ie not square. I've had some Sanchez mags that were like that, but 5 minutes with a c-clamp does it. Go easy, though, because if you pop the welds, you are not gonna be happy. Ghost
