I have some and love them. I was wondering if anybody had actually worn them out yet? is it even possible? I have GI mags that I keep around simply because I cant bare to throw away mags. the feed lips break down, the floor plates start shifting when loaded etc etc. will this eventually happen with Pmags?

Life cycle? Concept > design > prototype > production > sale > use > abuse > discard?

Life span? I have no idea and neither does anyone here. They haven't been around long enough to know for sure. I bet everyone is hoping for 10-20 plus years of use.

There is a thread around here somewhere from a Team member in country with a very high five-figure round count through one Pmag. It might even be up to six figures(100,000) by now!

I think even if you did wear one out completely, magpul would prolly replace it ;)

What if most of them just sit in my safe, unloaded, waiting for Armaggedon? Gotta last a while, I'd think.

They're not going to do you much good unloaded

That said all magazines are semi disposable and should be treated as such. As Pat Rogers says, "Don't fall in love with your magazines"


I am thankful that Magpul takes the time to answer legitimate questions on this forum. Thanks.

That's a joke right? They'd last for damned near ever in those conditions.

Yeah it would take the plastic a long time to degrade, especially in a climate-controlled environment.
