    Amend2 Magazines

    https://www.amend2mags.com/

    I was wondering if anyone has any of these magazines and if you like them, are they reliable?

    I bought 6 at my LGS several years ago; 3 of them have stayed loaded since then and have shot other 3 in several different ARs. No problems with feeding or locking in magwels. I'd buy more if I ran across them.

    I have a pair of them, that work fine. I bought them last year, and have used them several times without issue.

    Me and my buddies were coming out of the Louisville NRA convention on Sunday afternoon and this guy came up to us and asked us if we owned ARs. When we said yes, he opened up the duffel bag he was carrying and handed each of us an Amend mag. He said that they were flying home and couldn't carry them on the plane. He wanted to be sure they went to someone who would keep them and not sell them off. It has been a good mag and haven't had any issues yet. I went out and bought a couple more just to support them.

    So I take it they are just as good as Magpul Pmags?

    I've bought a few Duramag Stainless steel. I need to test them out for 556. 7.62x39 and 6.5 grendel mags from them work great.

    I have owned 3 for a year now. In comparison to Magpul, the springs are a bit weaker, but not enough to be problematic. They fit and function fine.

    Definitely not: the plastic is quite a bit thinner, which results in substantial flex at the top of the magazine.
    Personal experience: the flex results in magazine expanding to the point of not dropping freely from the magwell.
    That being said, after some time of loading/unloading, flexing it back and forth they seem to be fine (but no way of telling how it'll behave in an adverse environment).
    Overall quality is also noticeably lower (not bad, just not as polished as pmags).

    I'd never heard of these until this thread. Lo and behold, I got an email from Odin Works advertising this:
    https://www.odinworks.com/product_p/...77e9-272594545
    I don't get emails from Odin Works very often, but I am on their email list. Coincidence, or some nefarious plot from China?
