cool!

When do ya think Magpul will make Ranger or Lumpy plates for them?
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 2:55:27 PM EDT
seems a bit excessive for semiauto use. i like the idea of being able to own a 60 round mag, but i'd rather spend my limited funds on other items.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 2:55:45 PM EDT
Or when will Magpul make the whole thing? For $50 bucks?
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 2:57:15 PM EDT
Just meh to me. A few friends have them. They are good for running a carbine COF if you want to avoid changing mags, but otherwise they are huge, the follower sucks, and they cost far too much.

Are you wearing a bear costume?

Ps. eff surefire.

I was thinking 3 gun

Do you still have that ACR?
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:03:59 PM EDT
holy cow...I would rather have 500 rounds of wolf....lol
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:06:18 PM EDT
I thought I wanted one before I saw those pics. You would think $110 would get you something that doesn't look like it came out of a Chinese Tapco factory. Those welds look like shit. For that kind of change you would think they would be built like a Knights or LaRue magazine.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:14:26 PM EDT
I'd like to get one. Surefire can suck a barrel of dicks for grossly inflating the price of these magazines.

Then it would be worth it to me. That's exactly why one of my friends bought his. I have seen one be unable to load more than 30 rounds, though, so check it out.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:22:53 PM EDT
Makes sense in one of those gay IAR things. In a semi-auto AR-15, not so much.


But not everything has to make sense. Seems like it'd be fun to have one or two...
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:25:40 PM EDT
Ive seen those 100+ rd mags for just a bit more. Id like one of the surefire ones but I think my ass would hurt everytime I used it because the price is rape

Just loaded it with 60rds of Wolf using a LULA, no problem here.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:36:34 PM EDT
I wonder why then they are still listed as "Coming Soon" on Surefire's website, which is what it has said for several months now.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:42:23 PM EDT
I thought I wanted 60 rounds too (mag coupler). Till I put it on my rifle ... weighs too much

I can see the appeal, and it seems well-executed. Let us know how it runs.

Price is a little higher than a standard magazine, but quite a bit lower than many AK drums.

A lot of posters in this thread have evidently never purchased any other magazine than a STANAG AR one.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:45:03 PM EDT
Those would be great for big 3-gun stages but I'm not paying that much for one.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:46:05 PM EDT
What happened to the PMAG 40?
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:53:14 PM EDT
I lost my mags, guns and mind in a boat accident.

Link Posted: 9/14/2011 3:58:10 PM EDT
I have one I use for work and 3Gun, it's been flawless so far.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:00:22 PM EDT

Is it really a $110 inconvenience to change an $8 dollar USGI 30 rd. magazine once???

I don't think so.

Runs great, no issues what -so -freakin -ever !!!

Yes it costs money, you dont want it thats ok.

All the hatin' can stand behind the red line while the line is hot.......

Don't drop it on your toe!

FIRST IMPRESSION: That thing is almost as fat as I am!!!!!!!!

SECOND IMPRESSION: That thing would rock on the Robinson M-96 with the Bren Configuration.

make a video of you shooting it with the scar
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:14:37 PM EDT
Meh, for that price I'd rather just spend the extra for a Beta mag. I like the concept, execution, not so much. I'll have to do with my RediMag for now.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:16:54 PM EDT
this will be a game changer for 3 gun that's for sure. I will resist buying one...........at least until I see some range reports.
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:20:16 PM EDT
can you load it by hand?
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:24:25 PM EDT

Yes I cycled a few rounds out of it and reloaded them by hand just fine.

Both of them are gone, I'll have something cool again soon enough!
Link Posted: 9/14/2011 4:26:43 PM EDT
Just to answer a couple questions real quick

- Yes you can load it very easy by hand, no lula needed, the design of the springs and followers is one of a kind.

- Much lighter than I expected, I dont have a scale handy, but like I said lighter than expected.

- Smooth operation, coated with some kind of teflon feeling coating

Any clip that holds over 31 rounds here in Ohio is considered a machine gun and illegal

That's my feeling. I have also heard that they haven't been very reliable for those that are using them in 3-gun. I'll be waiting on the rumored Magpul quad stack.

For the record I'm not averse to spending that much on a mag as I have a few Brazos tuned 20 round mags for my STI as well as a few Knights mags for my .MA-10, but those mags are of very high quality, they aren't just a couple of barely trimmed stampings spot welded together.

Never gonna happen. Soon as they start making components for the Surefire you know it's dead.

I put 60rds of Wolf through it today, ran great and even took the wife and the video camera but unfortunately they don't get along and only the last 27rds were filmed, I'll try again this weekend.

That is not accurate according to Shotar


"You can own the mag, but you cannot insert it into a non NFA firearm."
Link Posted: 9/15/2011 9:09:10 PM EDT
At least make it LOOK like it should cost more then $11.

Why not just get $15 40 rounders?

as a Californian I am curious why you can own and use one but I can't.. is there an LEO clause that makes anything over 10 rounds okay for you?

Probably.

The only way I'd move back to CA is if I was a cop.

Can you field strip the magazine please? I want to see the cool looking follower and internal components to make it go from quad to double stack

isn't it not ideal to run mags through the 249? more of a last ditch option?

Yes




He must of been testing it. GI mags always had the problem with the mag spring not being able to keep up with the cycle of the gun.
