We’ve been testing these magazines for a few months now with no issues. They go on sale today for 20% off.
During my 1,000-round test, the AKM PMAG jammed once, when an old round’s bullet dislodged from the shell casing, spilling powder inside the magazine body. I consider this to be a 100 percent success rate, since it was the fault of the round, not the magazine.
Business End Customs will customize Glocks by beveling the edges and chopping the grips to fit shorter magazines. They also customize 1911s and Smith&Wessons.
Tactical Distributors is a great site that has a large selection of gear for the professional or tactical enthusiast. They sell everything including clothing, watches, knives, backpacks and more.

- Ruger .338 Compact Magnum
- 600-yd Playing Card Shoot

“The accepted wisdom seems to be that leaving magazines loaded does not hurt the magazine spring. The loss of stiffness comes from cycling the magazine springs. This has always made sense and seemed to agree with most of my engineering classes. Creep is a material property that you see most often in plastics and with modern heat treating should be pretty much none existent in good spring steels. Well this small experiment seems to point to the possibility of other conclusions:”
