on the Pmag there is a window at the lower portion of the mag, representing the last 10 rounds in the mag.(last 10 that will be fired, or when the magazine is most fully loaded)

but as the mag feeds the gun, the rounds disappear and are concealed with in the remaining portion of the mag and what is inserted in the gun.

this is the time, if you're worried about remaining rounds left in your gun, that a window would be MOST beneficial and yet is not addressed with the window Pmag, either inserted or when removed from the gun.

so why do people pay more for a feature on the Pmag when it's intended purpose is not achieved?

You can check to see if its fully loaded. I believe thats what they were going for.

Did you take the time to notice the painted indicator mark on the spring? It gives you an idea of how many are left even if you can't see the rounds themselves. Go to Magpul's Pmag page and expand the image they have there, you'll also see that there are marks along the window cutout that you can use along with the painted indicator that tell you how many rounds it works out to.

well good.

it was a question (answered) not a put down of Pmags.

I probably have 30 window-less Pmags, but never knew of the round count feature.

thanks.

You gotta cut an extended window into the mag well for further verification.
