Question...how many rounds through the unfixed PMAGs did you all fire before noticing this problem and the damage it causes? I bought a mint looking used 16S and fired 90 rounds though an unfixed PMAG and I can see wear already. I`m not sure if the previous owner was using PMAGs and I didn`t know enough to specifically check for this wear before I first fired the gun. I`m bummed that I didn`t check and join the forum before my first shoot with my SCAR!
Did you notice anything mentionable?This is a great thread and an observation that I'm sure most people would over look, myself included. I appreciate the information given and will be checking my mags and lower receiver ASAP. With over 5000 rounds through my 16-S I hope I don't have extensive damage. Thanks again.
Same reason I joined in too. So much valuable information in here that other forums that I am enlisted in do not provide.Excellent post, love all the pics with the directions. I've heard about the problems with a few magazine brands but never saw such a detailed explanation. Thanks again fro the heads up, when I get my Scar 16 I will test all the mags I own and any in the future with your lower test. Thanks again, It's posts like this that made me join the forum.
Rather than list them all, it's safe to say that any metal (steel or aluminum mags will be ok). LWM and Gen 3 Pmags are fine.
