I had a friend in PA order a few along with some after market Baretta 92 mags for my CX4. I will get them next week to try. I've got about 1000 rounds from 6 or 7 manufactures to test along with 3 different hand loads..It's going to be a fun day

Iíve got a couple of KCI happy sticks that seem to run fine. I am thinking I will get more. That said, Iíd like to try to get some 21 and/or 27 also magpuls.

Something I am curious about is, I am guessing cost and/or reliability, why no triple or quad stack Glock mags? (Yes I know only the portion below the magwell could be triple/quad) I guess maybe PCCs that take them havenít been around long enough. Anyway, something like a 40rnd quad stack that is the length of a 25rnd would be neat.
I'm guessing because there are already a decent assortment of drums available?

Glock 17 gen2: Put 27 rounds through it no issue, however it fell out of the magwell with two rounds left. Not sure if it actually seated properly.

More to come, I only get 1/2 hour windows and am expending a lot of ammo just to test.
I had that happen with a regular magpul mag in my polymer 80 G17. Wasnít sure if I just hadnít seated it right or if it was the problem ammo. I ran through a box of JSP 115gr Magtec. Just to try it for the hell of it. My polymer 80 has been running great for awhile now. And it ate a box of wolf just fine. It chocked on 4 of the rounds with FTF and popped the mag out on around round 5 of 17.

Thinking I may go back to 115 grain as well, just to see what happens. Getting some inaccurate shots. Could be me. Probably is me.

I wouldnít take one if they were free, not worth the trouble.

Im trying to convince this company to make some. I have a handful of their drums and they are excellent quality.
