    I hope these fit with no problems. The Gen 1 didn't fit at all.
    How bad were they?
    I only got one of the first gen ones and had to take a little off with a couple passes of a file.

    Look at this thread, mainly the last two pics in the first post, this is the area I had to touch up too.

    How is the new Gen 2 compared to AGP mags
    As mentioned I only have a gen 1 ProMag and a gen 2 AGP, thay are both nicely made but I like the look of the ProMag better with that waffle pattern on it.

    The new Gen 2 Promags are good. I tested it out last week using Walmart bulkpack Federal 7-1/2 shot and it fired all rounds flawlessly. No FTE and no FTF. Before, my Gen 1 Promags jammed and were absolutely useless.

    I have AGPs also. They worked good from day 1.

    However, I really like the new Gen 2 Promags because of its waffle design and its one piece mag body, no screws like the AGP.

    My test on the two replacements I received went T.U. The mag body is the same, and still requires fitting. Neither functioned and failed to feed on the second round in both mags. Popped my AGP in and finished the day with 200 rounds fired without a hickup. They still have some work to do to catch up with AGP. The big thing I see is the type of plastic they are using. It does not self lubricate like glass filled nylon. I will try some graphite or dry film moly to see if they improve. If they do, It will validify my assumption about the plastic. Not something I would trust my life with.

    As far as I'm concerned every product PM has ever made is defective. It's all crap.

    Are you sure they were Gen 2s? I had to mod the rear tab just a bit because it is still a little too fat. Once I did that, they worked great, no jamms or misfeeds like the Gen 1. Even my AGPs need to be modded slightly for a smoother insertion so not all mags are perfect.

    I do want to also add that I recently had worked done on my bolt and carrier such that I can load a full mag with the bolt closed. So part of the credit goes to that work.

    Funny, I felt the same way when I had the Gen 1 mags. Now that I have the Gen 2, I am now converted on that belief. I did expected to be disappointed but I wasn't.

    promags are beautiful looking mags...
    if i was to hang my gun on the wall to just look at i would keep a promag in there.
    however i like to use my gun, all promags i have used have been absolute garbage. they do not feed, and the follower sticks out too far causing the bolt to slam into it.

    there is supposed to be a method of boiling and corking them to get them to work. too much trouble for an inferior product.
    get some agps or surefires.
