    Since everyone is out of Pmags I picked up one of these the other day. Should I expect epic fail?

    I haven't heard to many negatives about them...but why not just buy aluminum mags, they are proven to work.

    If you heat them up rapid/auto fire, they're prone to melting/deforming.

    Otherwise, I've never experienced anything else bad with the couple I had.

    The L5 mags are probably a better polymer alternative to the Pmags, albeit, a little more expensive.

    All vendors gouging and selling above msrp have lost my business forever. People losing jobs on a regular basis and we're in the middle of gun control scare, the right thing to do is get as many mags and lowers into peoples hands as possible, not horde a thousand mags to sell them at $25 a piece.

    My local gun shop wanted $1295 for RRA lowers. Will not be buying from them. All this and I'm about as free market capitalist as it gets, but this shit is just wrong.

    Just the lower? Not the complete rifle? Is it stripped or complete? The last question is moot since it's anal rape either way but thought I'd ask anyway.
