    Your going to want three if you want to do any service rifle shoots.
    And more mags is always good!

    Only just notice that this 30 round mag is in a firearm with an A-Cat Stock, Wonder if the firearm is A or E.

    Nothing stoping you putting one of them on a e cat rifle,and if I made them I would sure do so for any advertising photos I did.
    They are a light and well made stock so I'm sure there are a lot on e cat builds-sometimes just to make a point I'm also sure

    Hopefully when they have sold a good amount they can drop the price back. I dream of NZ made AR mags for $40 each (doubt we would ever see anything close to US prices).

    Reviving an old thread rather than start a new one, is anyone using the Gen 2.1 Spears mags? I want to get some clear 30rnds before SI 3 gun but won't if there are more reliable options for cheaper, minus the clear option

    Anyone had problems with the seating of Spear mags in your AR?
    I just got a 7rnd and it fits, but is tight. cycles ok though.

    I bought a 30rnd clear Polycarbonate mag from Spearmags to see how they go, fits nice and after some use easily drops free when released, even when empty. My only concern is they seem a little fragile to be dropping onto the ground.
    Has anyone compared the durability of clear ones to the normal polymer ones?

    Fit smooth as in my Smith & Wesson, cycles fine too. It's the factory 5 round steel case thats caused me grief :-(

    Yeah you have to clean up the flashing on them a bit, they're ok but it's not great that a product requires final finish by the customer to be functional in 100% of AR receivers I tried them in (5)
