Green Beret Reviews Best Rifle Mags | Tactical rifleman


This week I cover a boring subject, magazines. Sorry, we can’t have blistering excitement every Friday. Sometimes we have to slow it down and talk about the little fine details that make the difference between just plinking on the range and being ready for a full on Fire Fight.
Magazines are the “Achilles Heel” of most weapon systems, whether we are talking rifles, pistols, or shotguns. If they don’t feed right, the weapon jams. If they don’t lock the slide back, we can be stuck unknowingly with an empty gun. If they don’t drop free from the weapon upon release, they can cost us critical time during a speed reload… time that may cost us our lives.
While it is not “sexy;” we do need to inspect our magazines every so often. Make it a habit. Know what to look for. If you find a problem; sometimes just cleaning the magazine helps. However, when in doubt, dump that bitch, and get another one.
I get into a bit of a history lesson, about the different generations of magazine development, during this video. That was not my intent. So, if I failed to mention your particular magazine, I really don’t care. If you want to share additional details in the comment section below, go for it. I will not comment on magazines (or other gear) that I am not familiar with. I’m not one of those that just regurgitates what he reads/hears/sees on the internet.
Currently, I run dozens of different brands of magazines. I’m leaning towards Lancer Mags, as they are holding up better than many of my other mags. I don’t care what brand you run, so long as they are reliable.
Go inspect your magazines, and I’ll be back next week with a most “exciting” video.
