I only have about a dozen standard GI mags, but I have two new H&K mags that are new. Should I keep them and use them as my primary defense mags or trade them 4 or mor pmags?

The H&K mags are very nice and I have heard they are the cats meow in terms of mags. I have also heard good things about the Pmags.

What should I do?

Thanks

pmags. I would hold onto the USGI mags considering the election. If you want to increase their reliability you can upgrade the followers to magpul anti tilt followers. Something tells me the H&K mags are just overpriced and youre paying for the name.

However good lucky finding any pmags in stock, due to the election, they are sold out in many places.

Hang on to your HK mags....I have 2 and they are sweet.
I'd save them and use them for defensive ammo.
I don't really think you'd be able to trade them in an equal value to PMags, seems like people are falling out of love with the HK mags.

That said, I like my 2 HK mags but I wouldn't trade 4 PMags for 1 HK mag.

Pmags, CProducts stainless mags & USGI with Magpul followers are better than H&K mags in my free opinion. While HK mags are steel, they have had rusting problems, as well as quick spring fatigue and some parts breakage reported. The fact that H&K won't sell replacement parts to "civvies" is the deal buster for many. You don't want to spend that kind of cash on a mag if you can't rebuild it. I'd take 6 PMags over 2 HK mags for around the same $ any day.


My opinion....worth what you paid for it.

The proof is in the pudding. The HK mags were the bee's knee's before Magpul came on the scene. But when you can buy 3 mags for the price of 1 and get 3 superior mags from a company that actually likes civilians it's a win.
I wouldn't trade any of my pmags for an HK mag.

+1 for Pmags. Good luck finding them right now though. Everywhere that they are priced decently is sold out.
