Post how that works out. I tried some of them a couple of months ago. They would not work. Couldn't get a single round to chamber. I returned them and have been promised replacements but but haven't seen anything yet.I've looked at the Molon Labe. Ordered 2 of them last week to test them out. I've got 4 factory magazines.
They did back before the company split up under CProducts. CProducts 25rd SCAR17 mag, they were hit and miss on reliability. Mine will never feed if loaded to 25rds, if loaded to 23rds they feed fine for range only mags.I seem to recall ASC making metal mags for it as well.
Not entirely true. Factory mags are well built and have come down some in price since the panic... if you find the right vendor. Molon Labe makes polymer mags that are reported to work well, but are longer. Promag makes one also but is known to be problematic. Moses Mags are still in development (supposedly getting close to final product). FN FAL mags can be modified to work in the 17S, there is at least one youtube video showing the process.factory mag is your only option. scar 17 mag is a proprietary design and still under patent protection..your only option I believe is one of a couple different lowers that may or may not be available that accept m110 style p-mags.. im sure someone on here will elaborate on those options shortly.. my advice would be to stock up on factory mags.
10 days passed and they haven't shipped. I emailed them and got a response almost immediately:Post how that works out. I tried some of them a couple of months ago. They would not work.

I apologize for the delay and thank you for your order. We have been in the process of switching over from our Gen 1 mags to our Gen 2 design. We have redesigned the springs, follower and feed lips to make the new mags more reliable and to correct any problems that were experienced with the Gen 1 design. It has been our plan to upgrade all magazine orders to our Gen 2 products, free of charge, to make sure our customers are receiving the best product we can provide. We are now in full production of the Gen 2 magazines and are working six days a week to assemble and ship out orders. All orders are being shipped out in the order they were received and should be out shortly. You will receive an email notification when your order has shipped which will include a tracking number for your package.
I received a package of new mags earlier last week. (2) 20 round mags and (2) 25 round mags. I loaded them up and checked to see if they would load a round. Success. I haven't gotted to the range yet, but these seem a lot more promising than the previous version. Once i have the opertunity to use them at range i will report back.10 days passed and they haven't shipped. I emailed them and got a response almost immediately:
Agreed - aside from the first round loading, hand cycling ammunition tells you nothing.Once i have the opertunity to use them at range i will report back.
