I shoot 3 gun with my AR so I like fast reloads. Most courses 60 rounds is plenty so I have been using a MAG CINCH to hold two 30's and keep another 30 in my back pocket just in case.

The mag cinch brand are fine but I picked up a plastic/nylon coupler made by FOBUS. I think it is a great product.
I have not shot a match with these so I cant say how well they will hold up. They seem to be well made and should work fine.

A big plus is the price of the MAG CINCH are $19.99 and the FOBUS are 9.99. save 10.00.

In the long run, the Mag Cinch will hold your magazines more reliably than the Fobus/First Samco thingie. I have both.

I think the fabric band of the Mag Cinch takes a tighter grip against the magazine than the plastic covered Fobus rig. And if you buy Buffer Technologies new Mag Cinch Tool you can really tighten up the bands. [url=www.buffertech.com/mc_tool.htm]Mag Cinch Tool [/url]

WINNER IS THE Mag Cinch.... the Fobus mag coupler has needed to be retightened a few times and now will allow the mags to slid alittle if they are pushed in opposing directions. The mag cinch also needed to be adjust a few times but they still will not allow slipping.

I prefer the Israeli spring steel clips with one rap of 100mph tape. I dont one more thing on my gun that stays together with screws.

With a wrap of tape the fobus would be fine too.

I have the fobus system and i have my 40's in them. The screws stay together just fine so far. But I did put some on the screw itself some blue locktite. Once these are together. I am not able to get them apart. pulling them or banging them. I also got these for about 7.50 ea on ebay.
