i've just spent a hell of alot of time at various wholesalers tracking down several things for several people.

i noticed something at one place and kept checking it out at the others and i've come to the same conclusion that many others have before me.

most of yall don't think your tier 1 badass best of everything ultra awesome rifle will work with a magazine that doesn't match the rest of the rifle, do you? 4000 FDE in stock and 0 black pmags. you guys better start building more FDE guns!

and you've probably given your wives shit about matching shoes with an outfit, haven't you?

if you're that worried about it, spraypaint works too guys

Black polymer is stronger than colored. I thought everyone knew that.

We're going to spraypaint it all anyhow...

Do I insist on proper color coordination on my ARs?

You're fuckin' A right I do.



(I did spray paint an FDE Magpul MIAD black once, when all I could find in stock was FDE. It now serves as the grip on my 6920).

LMAO, that's the reason I buy FDE mags in the first place. All the guys I shoot with want black Pmags, so when we get done on the line I can easily find my FDE ones.

PM me the link who has 4000 FDE ones, been looking for some.

I never did understand that color coordinated shit.

Seems gay as hell unless you're fighting in the desert.

I'm sure all of the wannabes have their shit matched.

Just order windowed pmags... the same place has almost 10000 of those.

I can buy whatever color accessory I can find since I got one of those Scar 16s that came pre-camoed (supposed to be FDE, FNH can't color match for shit)
Link Posted: 1/29/2011 8:30:13 PM EDT
For some with safe queens, their rifles are more of a Barbie collection than a tool. It is all about the accessories...take a 6 pound carbine, add 5 pounds of sights, lights, optics, rails, handles and even a compass in the stock with a sundial.



Link Posted: 1/29/2011 8:31:44 PM EDT
The only PMags I own are FDE.

I buy what's in stock. I could care less about what color my Pmags are on my AR. Currently I believe I have ample Black,FDE,and some green ones. I slap one in and off to the horse races we go.

Perfectly stated. Although the "silver" are actually dry film lubricant, a moly disulfide coating.

It's not that they have to match my rifle,,,it's that I have a black purse.

I thought we were going Coyote this season

If MagPul could showcase their colors on a weekly OLN show, say "American Magpul" we could vote by text and fix the whole off-trend overstock problem.

FDE? WTF? That's sooo 2010.
Link Posted: 1/30/2011 2:33:37 AM EDT
Sorry bro, but PMAGs are so last year. This years mag is the new Lancer with the steel feed lips insert. We are only about 12 weeks from the first post proclaiming that anything else will get you killed.

You only have one purse?

Piss poor planning, what if the strap breaks or something in a SHTF scenerio?

You could get killed.

I own probably the ugliest AR on arfcom, by the fact that it's just plain black.

Thats what I have read, and thats the only PMAGs I buy. And yea, I will stick one in my carbine with gasp FDE furniture, and the one with OD green furniture. I am sure I am the source of much laughter at the range
