Highly Unreliable

I own 4 Surefire 60 round magazines. I tried them for the first time last week. All of them started immediately having failure to feed problems. The follower will catch on the front of the magazine and dip causing rounds to jam or worse... I hope I can return these. All four of them behave this way... very bad product!

Completely unreliable.

Loaded the magazine up first time and couldn't get more than 10 rounds out of it at once without the follower tilting and causing failure to feed issues. Reloaded it a few times and tried and tried again, hoping it would fix with usage, but to no avail. Basically completely useless to me at this point, $90 wasted sitting in my safe.

I have purchased flashlights from Surefire before, so when I saw the ad for the MAG5-60, I jumped on it with NO hesitation. The product WORKS AS ADVERTISED! Easy to handle, no jams. I will purchase another one as soon as I can. Surefire has another GREAT PRODUCT!

The SureFire high-capacity magazine for 5.56x45 mm (.223 Remington) ammunition, also available in a 100-round version, is compatible with M4/M16/AR-15 variants and other firearms that accept standard STANAG 4179 magazines. Constructed from Mil-Spec hard-anodized aluminum, they feed smoothly and reliably due to optimal geometry, non-binding coil springs, and ingenious nesting polymer followers. The long-lasting springs are cadmium coated for low friction and excellent corrosion resistance. Magazines require no lubricants and can be easily disassembled without tools for cleaning.

SureFire High-Capacity magazines provide distinct tactical advantages: increased initial firepower in ambush situations; fewer reloads overall, which means less downtime and target distraction in a firefight; fast and easy magazine insertion, even with a closed bolt; less bulk compared to drum mags, enabling a normal weapon grip. The 60-round magazine—slightly thinner than two 30-round magazines clipped together and about the same overall length—fits in most dual magazine pouches, eliminating special carry pouches required for drum magazines.
