    About the stated problem. Does it make any difference if the mag is or is not loaded to full capacity. I keep mine loaded one less than full capacity because some are difficult to insert if loaded 100%. The lower receiver is S&W, and I had blamed hard insertion on the Smith receiver.

    Tried this. Slapping the baseplate pretty hard makes the top round creep forward, which is not great, but other than that, no effect. Except on my palm.

    PSA: not all PMAGS are created equal

    I have had it happen with 30 and 28 rounds. Most often on a vigorous reload. If the bolt is forward, insertion is super hard. Iíve had to slam the gun mag first onto a nearby object to get it seated.

    Lancer AWMs do not have this problem.
    @willie, as much as Iíd like to blame S&W because I donít like their guns, I doubt it has anything to do with it.

    So are my new but old school GI aluminum mags obsolete?

    I've had it happen with pretty much any amouny of ammo in the mag. Often times I'll end up using partial mags in a biathlon event. I've had the same failure occur with ~15 rds in the mag.

    Coincidentally I got a Lancer L5 off the prize table at Rockcastle. Seems pretty nice and having an accurate round count might be beneficial in a RNG event. I'll still see if Magpul will swap my mags, but I may be buying more L5 AWMs.

    I do like that the Lancerís round count is faster to read and more accurate. But they didnít drop free in my Noveske lower any better than Gen 2 PMAGs which is a big part of the reason I only use M3s and GI mags.
