Are pro mag AR 15 magazines any good?

A good mag at a good price. I got OD color and it matches Magpul OD very well, while Hogue is just a little bit lighter than this mag’s OD. Good mags for the price! I’ve used these mags several times already and find them to be durable and reliable.

Are ProMag reliable?

But the locking tabs are still weak and the plastic quality sub-par, so while they may work for a while they’ll break eventually. So yes, ProMag mags are junk. If you want pistol mags, get factory or a reputable 3rd party. If you want cheap but reliable rifle mags, get Tapco.

Are aluminum ar15 mags good?

In my opinion, now that almost all aluminum mags are using Magpul followers or some other brand of the same design, aluminum are superior. They’re thinner, so they take up less space, and fit in your mag pouches way easier, especially the double pouches. As for what the Army uses, it can be a mixed bag.

How many mags should I have for my AR-15?

Most people who own AR-15s aren’t conducting military operations, however, if you ever need to “bug out” and you decide to take your AR-15, having between 10-20 magazines is more than enough to take with you, wherever you go.

Is it bad to keep AR magazines loaded?

Using the spring (loading and unloading the magazine) frequently will cause it to wear out as well. Some springs may stay loaded for decades and still function, and others might wear out after a much shorter period of time. So just to be safe, the best practice is to rotate the magazines periodically.

Is it bad to store Pmags loaded?

According to magpul, loaded pmags can be stored without the dust cover more or less indefinitely. My experience also supports this, up to 3 years at least. That being said, I would recommend cycling through your ammo anyway.

Can a MSAR magazine be used in an AR?

I would convert my AR to accept MSAR magazines if I could. On this side you can see the operational bits. From left to right: The take down bar, ejection cover (for right or left side ejections), bolt catch and release, magazine release, rear pin and sling swivel, rear plate and butt.

Is the MSAR StG 556 shorter than the AR 15?

In the case of the MSAR STG-556, it is shorter than my AR-15, even when the AR-15’s stock is fully collapsed – yet both rifles have a 16″ barrel. This can be especially beneficial in close quarters self defense use, although a rifle is not my first choice when it comes to home defense.

Where is the magazine located on the MSAR StG 556?

The first (rather obvious) thing to note is that the MSAR STG-556 is bullpup, meaning that the action and magazine are located behind the trigger. Compared to traditional rifles, which place the action and magazine in front of the trigger, a bullpup is able to make use of what would otherwise be wasted space in the stock.
