    Thinking about selling off my pre-94 mags to ban states and getting some PMAGS. They look like they are all that and then some.

    cause you can run over pmags with a truck and they still work. Elastic deformation > plastic deformation

    .......because the odds of our rifles being run over by trucks and then directly put into aggressive combat have never been higher...
    seriously though, the PMAGs look really cool and i wanna get some but for what most of us use them for, standard USGI mags will be just as reliable and then some. I guess its preference at this point....paper or plastic lol

    Yes, but if you store them loaded without the little cap you get feed lip spread and they're worthless. Furner's mags have went over 10 years so far without being run over by a truck, I bet they've sat loaded for a while though.

    If they were cheaper than aluminum mags I'd probably buy 10, but priced as they are I'm not sure why a person who wanted to put some mags away for a rainy day would feel like they're a better choice.
