- Functionability of the AG5-60 M-4 Magazine
This piece of equipment is most useful because of its large capacity for ammunition. However, if a Gunner fires all 60+1 rounds in relatively quick succession, excessive heat is generated and the munitions seem to slow a bit toward the end of the exercise. Accuracy seemed to be affected as well. Ultimately, though, if one is in a close- in (~200 meter) confrontation, having the ability to manage the amount of ammunition overrides the minor weaknesses described here. Also, I believe the price is inflated due to the gun controversy under way at this time. A price of around $89.00 seems appropriate and still be within a margin to make a profit. Regards.

Though I've only put a couple cycles worth of rounds through this magazine it has worked flawlessly. Good craftsmanship. Pricey sure, but in this day an age...

Only fired one full mag at the range. After 40 rounds slow fire with no break I was getting some attention then a rapid fire of 20 more rounds and people were asking where they could get these magazines. I have never been in a firefight but I do feel confident that with four of these loaded mags in my vest and one in my Bushmaster I am prepared do my part if necessary.

I am the purchaser of three of the Sure Fire 60 mags. I have to say these are perfect. They are just the right size, not to heavy when loaded and they don't take away at all from the function of the firearms that I use them on. They are very high quality, even better then the Colt and Sig factory mags. If I could afford fifty of them, they would be in my safe. Do yourself a favor and get some.

This clip works GREAT - I wish you would put the 100 round clips on the general market - I can not find them anywhere I would buy some immediately.
