No. Nothing special. I do like steel though.

Their polymer AR mags are affordable and they're the tits.

The followers are so damn smooth that you'd think they were on ball bearings.  They won't nosedive, and they will last forever.  They're a bit bigger than a standard mag lengthwise, bit heavier as well.

I have seven of them still in the wrapper. I have used them before and like them alot. This last seven I have are for the right buyer with the right amount of $$$.

As posted, they are very 'smooth.'
Other than that, I bought a few when they came out, to add to the mag. collection.

any idea what they are worth?i guess technically used because they are not still in the wrappers.

the black stainless ones?

good mags, but heavy, and they were pricey ( $60 ) when new.
I seem to remember something about them being a result of an H&K program to enhance the reliability of the Brits enfields.

These were all sex and glamour when they first were rolled out (and not available except to HSLD units / not sold to serfs).  But they don't last (ironically for "high reliability magazines with a big price tag).  USSOCOM stopped using them.


 



ETA:  What makes the HK "high reliability" magazines a poor reliability choice is (1) weak, proprietary springs - and since HK never sold them commercially, when private acquirers tried to get replacement springs, HK said "turn them int your supply chain and draw new magazines" - and (2) improperly heat treated feed lips, which deform and cause malfunctions.




For apparently beautifully made, heavy stainless steel magazines that cost as much as the grey market / black market asked for them, these offered no advantage over less expensive, more reliable alternatives.




Except HK.
