Nice. They have dropped down further than I had last seen. Solid price.

Looking at gun stuff this evening, saw Brownells has them for $11.99 each shipped if you do a 10 pack of the translucent FDE. Have to use code "M3P" when checking out for free shipping + $10 off your order. Takes the 10 pack down to $119.99.

Did he throw it at a steel target? Did he shoot it with a .50 BMG?

It's rumored that the black mags are the most durable of the PMags. That the FDE and other colored polymers are a little more fragile. Idk if there is any validity to the claim, however I have watched RobSki drop a few AR's with loaded black PMags on that concrete slab of his and they came out fine.

I have also seen a couple drop tests where steel higher end BUIS bent and threw the zero off a foot at 100yds vs the MBUS that shifted 1" because the "bounce back" nature of polymer.

It's really a toss up with folding BUIS.

I have broken an Aimpoint by my rifle sliding off the arm of my couch. Shit breaks.

There you go. That's why I questioned the UVA stability of the translucent Lancer/ET mags. I can just about guarantee the Pmags with the window will eventually yellow, or crack the windows.

I used to get $6.99 Amend2 mags locally. Now the LGS boutique raised them to $11.99-$12.99. I'll just get my Magpuls on line thank you.

Yep, just like an AK with and without a chrome lined barrel.

One'll last at least until it gets to your great-grandkids, and the other'll last at least until your great-great-grandkids.


Internet loves arguing about "better", even if the margin between "best" and "better" might as well be "zero".

I'm more concerned it works than which is more supreme.

I don't feel cheated with a PMag, Lancer, or even a decent USGI mag. They've all worked fine for me.

hA..just checked MAC's Instagram..the polymer MBUS was a fake he'd gotten years ago off Amazon...he did have a steel mbus break or come unthreaded bouncing around on a gun in Jeep though he says.

Keep an eye on Botach Tactical as they usually run deals. Ends up being $10-11 per mag shipped.

Edit: Found these for $11.55 with $9 flate rate shipping.

Default Lancers

I picked up some translucent FDE Lancers for my .300bo rifle and I gotta admit I like them better than my windowed 5.56 PMAGS. So much that I'll probably not buy any more 5.56 PMAGS. And this is coming from a guy that likes AK PMAGS as much as surplus steel.

Looking at them side by side, the Lancer body (at least the translucent ones) don't look as sturdy as the PMAGs. Never done a drop test though so that means nothing.

Still gotta salute Magpul for their D60 drum though, a nice piece of gear that works for me. So c'mon Lancer, where's my translucent .300bo drum?
