    We don’t even know if the reliability of this new product backs up the premium pricing.

    50 round Glock drums can easily be found for $50. Magpul is definitely banking on their reputation.

      Amazingly useless comment. +1, would read again.

      “new product…” yet “don’t know if the reliability…”

      Glock mags come in two categories: factory and everything else. Out of the aftermarket, Magpul are the only ones that are worth trying. ETS and KCI are hot garbage. You a Promag-in-my-XD guy, Joe?

      Magpul does a ton of R&D… these probably work. And they’re made in the US.

      Do you think they just designed this over Christmas vacation? They’ve been working on this for more than a year. They know what they are doing. And $120 is far from “premium” pricing.

    • Alpha2 says:

      The only thing I’d worry about as far as reliability would be the Glocks mag catch considering all of the weight of a loaded drum…and that is easy enough to remedy. As for Magpul and their reliability, as Jack said they do a ton of r&d so I’d venture a guess that if they are confident in bringing them to market that they probably work just fine.

      Like every other company trying to sell in a competitive market?

      Show me the $50 glock drum that works.

      • MarkD says:

        50% of the time they’re 75% reliable, usually…… I don’t know what happened this time. Must be the Ammo

    And there are plenty of 5.56 drum mags that are cheaper than the D-60, but as we have seen, you get what you pay for. There isn’t another 5.56 drum that I would trust for real world use. As you said, I think their reputation in this exact product category is probably a pretty clear indicator of reliability.

  3. Zach says:

    I’d be much more interested in a viable US 30rd MP5 mag.

  4. Jeff S says:

    I’m sure they work perfectly fine and are more than worth the money in regards to liability and durability

    The D60 is fantastic (other than loading), I’d be willing to be these are just as good.

  5. Jay D says:

    $120 seems reasonable for this type of magazine. With current ammo prices it would cost more to keep those mags full. 🙂

  6. Mick says:

    I assume MAGPUL would want to get in on the Sig 320 train, but anyone heard anything official?

    • SSD says:

      I have asked about this and it all comes down to magwell size and the thickness of polymer magazine walls. It is very difficult to do.
