Do LMT rifles accept/work with PMAGs??? cause I sold a bushy I had, which i regret doing, and have about 30 or so pmags laying around, and im looking at getting a LMT soon. Ive heard that it will not drop free, and ive heard from others it just won't fit in the magwell.

PMags work fine with my LMT lower.

I have a Defender2000 lower that works perfectly with PMAGs, both the older style as well as M-Rev.

Maybe on the other hand some P-Mags are a little oversize.

I use PMags exclusively in my LMT rifle. No issues.

I've had no issues in my LMT lower with PMAG 20's and older 30's. I haven't tried the newest Maglevel or M revision yet but expect them to work fine as well. I wouldn't worry about it especially if you are going to buy a new lower.

Update: I checked my new Maglevel, M Revision and straight 20's in my LMT lower. All dropped free without hesitation. Some were "snugger" than others in the magwell but no problems dropping free. I guess this is a hit or miss issue.

I really like the quality of my LMT lower. Fit, finish and parts are excellent.

So far, my LMT CQB16 that I rec'd 12/08 has yet to fail me with any mag, ammo or accessory I've used.

Only P-mag I have is a bit tight. It will drop about an inch when empty but needs a pull to come out completly.
100% reliable!

I have 2 LMT lowers. Both will not drop a PMAG. Due to my bad experience with LMT's crappy QC on both my lowers
and my LMT upper and the incredibly bad customer support I'd recommend you buy a Colt or other quality brand.

Ouch.

Any details? What you're reporting is 180 degrees from personal experience...

Seems you are just blaming this problem on AR Mfg.s where the real blame lies with the Mag. Mfg. how many AR lowers can be wrong?

Still Magpul bashing? Did they not send you a hat or something?

The blame for out-of-spec lowers is the companies making out-of-spec lowers.

My Experience

Someone elses experience This one is from another guy. Way worse than mine. Feel bad for that guy.

I can say I'll never buy another LMT product after my experience.

ETA: links hot. I think.

I only have 1 PMAG. I like the old USGI mags just fine.

My LMT lower is slightly tighter than my two Colts, I had a couple of old PMAGs that won't drop free at first with my LMT, but after some use they're now all dropping free.

My new M rev PMAGs don't have any problems with my LMT.
