new magpul 10/30 mags

Recommended Posts

From the old SNL spoof bank commercial: how do we do it? Volume

I'd be interested to know if they are limited in such a way that they can be loaded with the bolt closed or not.

Magpul never made 10/30 mags. Standard capacity mags were always pinned by a third party

this, and most places charged $20+

Solution: Buy 10/30 Hexmags.... problem solved!

The Hexmags are fine especially when i got them at cost. But I would have rather have Pmags or Lancers as they are a superior mag.

What's the prevailing opinion on these? I just ordered some. Been curious for a while now.

I'd rather have 10/30 Pmags than 10/30 Hexmags.  Hexmags are flimsy and not reliable.

 

And with the price being roughly the same now, Pmags for the win.

True...but Pmags are overly priced... the best mags in my opinion are Duramag (used to be C Products Defense) Stainless Steel.... they make a 10/30 and regular 10, I might have seen a 10/20 at one time too...I ran pmags.. hexmags ..aluminum crap...but the Duramags are lighter and I just love the metal feel instead of plastic and I beat the crap out of them dropping them on the ground...and the most you will spend is $11.99 a mag.. I got them on sale for $8.99 from Gun Mag Warehouse when the BAN on 15rd came in effect. Try them out you might switch over like I did.

Gen 1 hex mags had issues they would split at the seam near the feed lips when fully loaded.

But gen 2 hex mags fixed the problems, And you could trade your  gen 1 mags for gen 2 for free

Let me know when they do a 10-20 mag,

10 round capacity in a 30 round size magazine makes no sense.

It makes plenty sense - several people use mag pouches, etc.  20 round mags would get lost inside pouches where 30 round mags would fit perfectly.

I’ve never had an issue with gen 2 Hexmags. But I’d still buy these Pmags to add to the collection.

I'd rather run 2 magpul 10's coupled together.  But it's good to have options.

 

I have some of these too but I feel I can get a new mag off a belt or chest pouch faster than I can flip these coupled mags. But I guess it’s whatever you practice.

I guess it would be in poor taste for me to mention how happy I am with all my new 30 rd p-mags so I won't. Also won't mention the 20 & 30 mags for my CX4 & 92. 

If  I ever get to America. I'm going to get at least one  D-60 p mag

Well I have no 2nd gen hexmags, but mine have been slowly splitting at the seam in back with use. About 20% of them so far Also all olive drab, but I think that they are the oldest matters more than they are olive drab. 

They are nice in that they fit everything without modification, but I prefer the PMAG construction overall even if I do have to mode them to fit into everything.

My original hexmags are 'patent pending' ones, not sure if gen1 ever had a patent number on em. Most are kept "fully" (10) loaded with zero issues as of yet. When 10 rd bill came about, I got something like 5 or 6 OD gen2 hexmags for under $50 off gunbroker. No issues with those either.

While PMags feel more robust, i have no issue with hexmags.

Factory 10/30 options are "nice" if we are forced to have 10s...
