Give it time. They just need a little dirt to showcase their true colors.I've seen mostly 10 rounds, but, as already said, some guys even put extenders for an extra 2 to 4 rounds.. I'm running ARC mags with an Are 419 mag extender, no issues so far! Cheers pal!
That's odd, I have never had a problem with Accurate Mags. Had lots of problems with ARC mags though.Kelby black bear owner here, AICS 10rd mags with area 419 extension in them. Run very smooth for me and I've had zero issues with them when I run them in my Remington 700, tikka, bighorn, or black bear. Cartridges are 308, .260, and 6 dasher. To be fair I've not ran the MDT mags, but I have tried accurate mags and I had issues with them.
I really wanted the ARC mags to work, love the concept, and I'm a fan of that company.Give it time. They just need a little dirt to showcase their true colors.
The MDT mags seem to have a really stiff spring. Seems really stiff even with 10 rounds in them.Had anyone had any issues with MDT 12 rounders with excessive spring pressure once you get 12 rounds in them?
I haven not shot them in the 6Creedmoor they will be getting used for (parts shipped today from ALTUS ) but loaded to the brim with .308 they seem to have a LOT of spring tension for the first 1-2 rounds out of a work rifle.
Wondering if adding a baseplate will fix this? I really don’t want to trim off a leaf from the spring.
Same here.I really wanted the ARC mags to work, love the concept, and I'm a fan of that company.
Those mags didn't even make it out to the range. Too many issues just in the living room, couldn't trust them.
First time I saw someone drop kick a magazine out of rage was at a PRS match last year - it was an ARC mag with an LRI follower. Apparently his passed the "living room" test but not the "IRL dust test" hahaha. Makes me chuckle thinking about it.
As much as I love ARC, their mags were definitely a "swing and a miss".
The higher the capacity, the greater long-term wear on springs and odds of failure - and we all know that the second someone drops a 15rd mag, guys will slap extensions on them and they will become 18-19rd mags.If someone would just make a AW OR AICS 15 round mag they would sell... hint hint Area 419....
