Every single one of them that I own has now broken at the rear of the feed lips. 1000 rounds each max, in my Tacsol .22 AR. I'm done with them, I want the cmmg metal lipped Evolutions.

I've only broken one, and it was the front of the feed lips, I assume from the follower smacking forward when the bolt locks back. What lower are you using, it almost sounds like its holding the mags too high and the bolt may be hitting the mag?

Mil-spec set up mega lower. I'm not sure there would be a way to change how the mag sits. It seems like this is a common problem with these mags... I'll inspect my lower, my bolt looks fine.

never had an issue with the old ones I have. My father has some newer ones, seem the same to me?? :shrug:

I should add Ive even dropped em a few times on concrete, but never on the feed lips...

ya, I keep them in a soft case, never dropped. Fit is good in the upper, no issues until they begin cracking. They don't appear to be the glass filled ones, hopefully they replace them with something more durable. I want metal feed lips, this plastic crap is dumb. I'ma look into the new cmmg's.

I talked with CMMG yesterday and was told 2 weeks on the 10 round modular mags. I have one and these things rock!. Not like any .22 mag you've handled before. Very solid feel to it.
I wasn't crazy about the skeleton skin but in your hands, it looks different. I like it.

I got some of the newer glass filled black dog mags and they seems fairly well made to me. Haven't had any issues, but I probably only have about 200 through each mag. Can't wait to get my paws on some of the new cmmg mags.

Black dog sent me 4 replacement mags, gave me the new X-form mags (can change feed lips to steel, they sent the plastic version). cost me shipping to them for my old mags, but otherwise free. Good service, I hope these hold up better than the Gen2's did. I'll report back once I try them.

It's been two days and you haven't shot them yet? What's the hold up? :D

We need a field report. Run a brick through each new mag and report when you can.

Just 2 of them. I recently ordered some other mags, so i'm selling 2 of the 4 Gen-4's.

Tested out the new Gen4 X-form mags tonight... the two I used fed absolutely great, no sign of feed lip damage, ran them hard, no misfeeds even on quick double taps, held the bolt open fine (until removing the mag). Overall, these are great, wayyyyy better than the Gen2's that sucked. My AR-22 Tacsol is very happy once more.

BDM sent me a couple of the Gen 4's. I've not had one failure with them.
CMMG Gen ll BHOA mags have been released now from what I understand.

Which vendors are carrying them right now? And, how do you know it'll be Gen4 X-Form?

It says Gen-4 X-form. They have replaceable feed lips.

Wait, why do blackdog mags rock now? Don't the gen 2's still suck while the gen 4's are ok?
