Default Who's running DFM mags?

I'm really liking Franklin Armory's DFM magazines, for a couple of my ARs that I only shoot from the bench when I'm in the mood to just plink and relax.

Anyone else a fan of them? Just curious.

I ran them for a few months when they first came out, it was ok until it got old real quick (didn’t end up liking it lol) then switched to Mean Arms, then to Bear Flag BF-10, then Juggernaut Hell Fighter, now I’m set on Hogue Freedom Kit and King Pin..

I am. I like that I can retain my Mil spec mag release button when using the DFM mag and bolt catch

I'm using them on my 6.5 Grendel hunting / precision rifle with no issues. For what this rifle was built for I'm not "dumping" mags.
Oh no, not another 1911 !

Had one on my AR pistol but I would often have double feeds when using the Mean Arms loader so I ditched it for the Hellfighter Pin from Juggernaut Tactical.

I use the Franklin arms Dfm set up. No issues quick easy to change to standard mags when out of state. Last round bolt hold open I hardly notice anymore . Just part of the reload drill.
Some people love the Dfm some dont , Last rd hold open seems to be the Big deal.
When in Ca I'm generally shooting off a bench or hunting so dosnt really matter..
My ARs are not my got to H.d. rifle either.
