PMAG vs Troy Battle Mag (CBIR)
Well they are pretty similar, the PMag is a little heavier but I don't count ounces. You will have to add some grip tape to the Troy it is a little slicker than the PMag.
PMag $14.20 +$5.00 for the Ranger Plate =$19.20
Troy $13.95 + $0 for the pull tab = $13.95
I like the PMAG better, it just feels better in my hand but the troy has the price. I thought the Troy pull tab (feels like soft rubber) would break after a couple hundred mag changes but so far hasn't even phased it.
The followers are similar except the PMag's is more rigid, I can depress the Troy follower and make it uneven, I can not do the same with the PMag. This may not even matter since I haven't ever experienced a jam due to magazine error with the PMag or the Troy mag; a few jams shooting wolf ammo ;).
Conculsion: PMag wins my money. I think the PMags look more cool, they feel more robust but the price point is pretty huge. I would buy the Troy mag if they went on sale for less than $10, that would make the Troy win (2 Troys for 1 Pmag). For now my magazine pouches are full of PMags.
If you have a loved one going down range do not let them leave without 8 magazines, it would really suck to get shot because your weapon jams due to the crappy USGI Magazine.
