Okay, Iíve seen the PMAGs, the EMAGSs; I canít find the LR-PMAGS (the 7.62x51mm/.308) and I want to know if anyone here has any experience with any of them and if they know if the EMAGs will be sold in smoke tinted. I have watched these things be torture tested and canít argue with the results.

I'm pretty sure they are not out yet. If they were going to come out soon then you can forget about that as Magpul has almost stopped production on everything other than PMags. There is now even a pretty long wait on any stock other than the black CTR. Last time I was in contact with Magpul they said that they are literally pumping out PMags 24 hours a day thanks to the demand.

I have some experience with the Pmags, both the standard and window models. We (the agency I work for) had heard they were good mags and passed all attempted failure tests in a torture run at Gunsite. So, we decided to try them out.

We have a variety of rifles including personally owned AR's (numerous varieties), Viet-nam era M-16A1's from the Army, new production Colts, model-1 frankenguns using some of the A1 full auto lowers, etc.

We have yet to have a failure with the mags, except when we max them out. I have one mag that will take 31 rounds, not sure why. It is a window mag and I realized something was wrong when the last round went in on the left side of the mag. It was fully maxed out and when I fired the M-16 it provided enough tension on the bolt to prevent it from fully cycling. I had inserted the mag during an exchange so it was chambered. The other mags load to 30 and I haven't had that problem.

We have also found they are 100% on full auto with full length M16-A1's and on our 10 1/2 inch entry guns.

As an instructor and officer who carries a rifle at work (not that we ever really get into shootings) I highly recommend the Pmags. They are the only mags I have never had a failure with (when you don't cram the extra round in). Most of our Colt mags work just fine, but some of our officers still carry Bushmaster mags. They are burm mags. All they are good for is throwing over the burm.

I had a difficult time finding good mags in Iraq and would have loved 10 pmags instead of 10 mix and match old mags. Better mags showed up later, but it still would have been nice to have the Pmags.

They sound good, i think i may get a few of the EMAGs if and when they come out n smoke tinted, they have normal PMAGs in that color but PMAGs can't fit alot of weapons.
