    I donít know but now that Magpul is making metal reinforced mags I donít see a reason to mess with these. One big downside of the tango down US palm mags is that they canít be taken apart for cleaning.

    Last I heard Century bought US Palm and was supposed to be bringing some of their stuff back to market.

    XTech is thicc! If you like fat ass girls youíll appreciate the Mag47. They donít fit as well into mag pouches. Some gear makers actually have special pouches for them. I was unimpressed with them personally. I prefer magpul.

    Yeah if you look in the link below they are somehow involved too. Trying to sort out who is who from that article is like trying to read the Old Testament (Joseph begat Gabriel begat Saul begat frank...)

Century, thinking they own the design now, tell Xtech to stop making it. XTech cries to TD, TD tells century ďhahaha, we only sold you a name not a designĒ and tells XTech to keep on keeping on.

    Either way, now that @Hizzie has posted, I do recall th mags being extremely fat, and so crossed them off my list of options, it itís good to have all this discussion here for others in the future (and for me to reference back to when I inevitably forget this whole thing...)

    At the bottom of the US Palm Magazine page are links leading to Century Arms, Red Army Standard, and Canik. "Our other brands". The Century Arms page has a link leading to the US Palms page.



    Quick question? Is Riley Defense G2G or are they crap?
