SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show, it is held at the Sands Convention Center at the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas NV, USA. It is a private INDUSTRY ONLY show. As media, we are invited to come out and see all the new firearms in the Industry so we may bring you the viewer new content.  This video is from Industry Day, also known as Media Day.  This is our “first day” where we get to shoot all different firearms, ammo, accessories, etc.  It is a really fun day to try many different types of firearms from skeet shooting to full auto.  Tomorrow starts the first official day of the trade show.

C Products Defense AR-15 Magazine Review

I have been provided the materials needed for this review. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.

I came into this review with an open mind and I hope you do as well. I know this company has had their faults in the past but this review is one I hope lets us move forward.

I met them at SHOT Show 2013 and it took a year but they finally approved my request for mags for testing. I received six aluminum and six stainless steel 30 round AR mags.

Testing 

While I have tested mags in the past by throwing them off towers and dragging them behind golf carts for 10 minutes, I decided this go around I would only test in ways a civilian might damage them. Chances of mags being dragged behind a car or dropped off of a tower are slim (if you don’t account for training courses that teach shooting from the tower).

We have been testing the mags for 6 months or so now and have shot well over 3000 rounds out of all 12 mags. I used mostly steel cased ammo and they never had one hiccup.  The orange follower is anti tilt.

The finish has lasted on all of them and show very little signs of wear. I wanted to test them to see if standard wear such as heavy use would give problems. I also wanted to  know what would happen if, god forbid, I forget I have a loaded mag and I drop it and end up driving over it (yes, this has happened during a review and lunch break).   

Driving over the stainless steel mag caused a small dink in the metal but did not affect the performance of the mag or capacity.  While the whole mag was driven over front to back, the only damage was near the  base plate.

The aluminum did not fare as well.

Even after bending the metal back as best we could, the aluminum mag is not functional and is now just used for display purposes.

Spot Welds

The welds on all of the mags look solid and should not remind anyone of Christmas past.

Even after the crush test the welds held and seem completely unharmed

Final Thoughts

Go into any gun shop and ask enough questions and someone will always tell you about why you should stay away from (fill in the blank) because in 1967 they had (fill in the blank) problem and there for they cannot trust anything new when it comes to (fill in the blank). Look, all I can tell you from my stand point is if you are looking for metal mags and you have no intention of being attacked by a Sharknado or a herd of “I can’t trust polymer guns because in 1943 we used wood…”. C Products Defense mags pass my test.
