New hexmag 15 rounders

23 posts in this topic

Haven't seen anyone talk about these yet. New patented mag blocking system that doesn't require "permanent" blocking. They claim the only way to revert back to 30 is with a tool that only they have. How are there normal mags? I might stock up on a few of these

I didn't see anything about a tool, I though they were "permanent" because they have a shorter spring so if you took out the capacity-reducer-thingy they wouldn't feed any more. Theoretically that would be a bonus since if you moved to America you could just get a full-capacity replacement spring.

 

But I've been wrong before.

Yes to what?

 

Legal to possess in NJ.

No tool needed.

Readily available.

Functions well.

FYI, had one of these spontaneously fail while sitting inside the safe.  Was loaded with 14 rounds and the case split on the back spine (strangely not along the seam/join).

Went to grab it from the safe and it vomited all the rounds onto the floor.

 

Told hexmag, they sent a new shell immediately.  Hasn't repeated with any of the other 4 I've had yet.

I have a few std 15rd hexmags. They feel cheapy to me, compared to the 10rd pmags i have, but thats probably because of them being half empty when 'full', versus the pmags being compact and therefore much more rigid. I'd imagine the 30rd pmags feel the same. As far as functionality, no problems as of yet. Heard of some issues with them here and there on older mags but word is they are quick to fix things when they go bad. A brand that backs their product has my backing :triniti:

I've heard they can do that after dropping them once or twice on concrete. Hopefully they figured it out.

The trick is to NOT DROP ANY MAG on concrete.

I shoot IDPA in an indoor range and drop mags on the concrete floor all the time. Dropping loaded mags, with the extra weight of the rounds I can see as a bad thing, but empty they should be built to handle it, in my opinion.
