Ain't that the truth... 3 major manufacturers have enhanced mags planned that will blow the HK out of the water, and be priced far more reasonably.

I heard Joekin Firearms is going to have some super AR mags. But they might go out of stock before they go on sale

Because the HK mags are LEO, and people are fascinated with things they can't have.

Yes, the HK mags implement some neat ideas. No, They're not worth $40. If your life depends on your gun, get some magpul followers and extended life springs. They'll work just as good, if not better than the HK anyday.

An envoy works just as good as a trailblazer- some prefer more exclusivity, the prestige, or just want some of every kind. Value is in the eye of the beholder. From a functional standpoint only, I agree they are WAY overpriced, but if ya have to have 'em and you have the scratch go for it- I am. But you still have not answered the question Capn? What are these new mags you speak of. I assume one is the Okay "high reliability", but what are the other two? Inquiring minds want to know!

TIA,

The three manufacturers do not currently make 30 round mags. I don't know if any of them will actually bring theirs to the market, as there has been some talk of foregoing the entire thing if "other" magazines end up being a better mousetrap.

Maybe polymer mags with a steel insert in the polymer,that would be the best of both worlds.

WELL, IVE GOT SA80'S REBUILT WITH CRHOME SILICON SPRINGS, MAGPUL FOLLOWERS AND REG MAGPUL'S AND THEY ARE JUST AS GOOD A AN HK! Now by the time you break it all down Im $27.00 in each mag and that includes buying the mag! You cant beat an tricked out SA80!

When the ban is over I will be getting some from this outfit.store.botachtactical.com/hkarma.html
That is if the price is right, and it usually is at that site.

I remember a thread from an ARFer from England who was picking them up for $18 each. I believe that they are being marked up to 40 for LE when they get here.. I might get a few when the ban expires, but the USGI have done well for me, so I'm in no rush to pay over $20 for one.

Edit - England? Maybe Germany, from somewhere, it's been about 4 months.

and extended life springs


Wolff +15's?

BTW, jah, the MagPul followers are definitely worth it I think. I am going to get more soon.

"After this test procedure each magazine was fully loaded with rounds and fired twice with no problems experienced. In U.S. military testing the HK M4/M16 magazine improved feeding reliability of the M4 carbine by 30-50% overall."




Since when do USGI have feeding reliability problems

Buy the overpriced HK Mags if you must but don't buy from botach unless you like waiting, wondering and then getting screwed.

I am just one of the many who have had bad service from them. These guys are the kind of place that give all internet dealers a bad name.
