    Purty. Mall ninjas will sell their firstborns to get those.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Might be worth buying to sell during the next panic.

      • mikewest007

        That’s a… that’s a good idea, I like that!

    • floppyscience

      First born children aren’t worth that much nowadays, eh?

  • dp

    So here is the solution to at least 30years old problem; and it has to be HK again. Nobody else has pair of eyes – obviously.

    As much as design of original AR15 magwell is restrictive, there is plenty of material space outside. And also, space around bullet portion can be used as well to create natural stiffener. And this all is topped off by unbeatable German plastics technology. Far superior over Thermold and surely better than Magpul. That’s the way and thumbs up!

    • schizuki

      “Surely better than Magpul”? Really? How so? I’ve heard nothing but outstanding reports about Magpul. What’s wrong with them? Do they jam? Break?

      • Tom

        Its better because it has HK stamped on it and costs several times as much.

        HK – Because you suck and we hate you (someone had to say it).

        • mikewest007

          Or, as I once put it, “Hecklin’ ur Cock”.

        • http://www.thefirearmblog.com/ Phil W “Senior Writer TFB”

          Somebody better stop saying it. I have this urge to hit delete. That saying is so damn old I’m sick of it!

          • SUPERSOAKER

            HK is a great company and there customer service isn’t nearly as bad as people say.

            Despite all the haters, HK makes some of the BEST and most reliable firearms hands down. Its like someone hating on Mercedes just because they can’t afford one.

          • FourString

            Snark aside, “Its better because it has HK stamped on it and costs several times as much” is not particularly valid when you look at real world performance. How did H&K get their reputation for reliability, fairy dust? The Glock fanboys apparently think so.

        • Frank

          $20 is several times what a Pmag goes for these days? Huh? People need to drop all of the hivemind about HK guns. They sell hi cap guns to regular people. They’re more expensive because they’re built with tight tolerances and have high QC. The same reason something like a Remington R1 and a Dan Wesson don’t cost the same even though they’re both 1911s. Ones built tighter and not produced in the same volume.

        • Nadnerbus

          Also, all your base belong to HK, while we’re hitting these memes at the height of their popularity.

      • dp

        I spent bunch of years in engineering, good part of it with magazines and feeding in general. I may not be exactly up-to-date with current P-mag, but I know what’s involved and what counts. Many of you do not even mention cold weather conditions (of course, weekend shooters); these are things military cares for a lot. Just a short glance at HK product tells me they got it – again.

        • anon

          >Many of you do not even mention cold weather conditions

          herp a derp, make assumptions about a product in a certain environment when you don’t have a fucking clue about how they actually work.

          HK makes good stuff but they do not automatically make better stuff than their competition just because they are HK.

          • Jay

            Just ask the Canadians about pmags and cold weather. It’s not just rumor. They don’t last long in cold weather. It’s known fact.

          • William C

            You mean the thermold mags they used to have for their C7s?

          • Jay

            Nope. Civilian Pmags.

        • schizuki

          “Just a short glance at HK product tells me they got it – again.”

          Oh, well, who am I to question a “short glance” versus the positive real-world record of Pmags?

        • Hard_Harry

          I love watching people licking magpul’s nuts. but as soon as a positive(and intelligent)comment shows up for these mags, we’re all of a sudden just a bunch of HK fan boy snobs. Priceless

  • TangledThorns

    I’d like to see a review between HK and Lancer’s translucent mags.

    • deadhorse

      I have always preferred the Pmag because of its well known ruggedness and lack of “noise”. I recently bought a couple of the lancers and do not like them at all because they are extremely noisy. Just like a regular GI mag. Just my .02 cents….opinions may vary.

      • ST4

        Lancers are, “extremely noisy,” compared to Pmag? First time I’ve heard of it.

        • deadhorse

          My threshold for “noise” being pretty low, I believe that they are. Now I don’t mean by dropping it or throwing it around, I mean noisy as in pulling from a pouch, loading/reloading, etc. It reminds me of the GI mags. While I never had a serious “disagreement” with GI mags when I used them, my only complaint was the noise they made, mainly the spring. The Lancer is the same.

          • Anon

            Interesting… firing the actual weapon must be difficult for ya then. I’m sorry…

          • deadhorse

            Touche. lol I mean the clanking around of mags, of course!

          • Tom

            I only notice that on my Lancers when they’re mostly empty. They definitely have that hollow USGI mag rattle of the spring when empty, but with 10 or more rounds in them the tension on the spring seems to shut them up.

            I like Lancers better than Pmags, but like both just fine. I like a lot of the AR mags really, there aren’t as many cheapo plastic crap mags like there used to be!

          • deadhorse

            I noticed a “clang” as I am firing; did you? I will be at the range this weekend so I will double check again.

            And I agree with you about the Lancer being better than some of the other polymer/plastic mags out there.

      • FourString

        that’s interesting, maybe TFB could include that in their review

  • Harley W Daugherty

    unit price? $49.95…………..i figured it would be that!. given HK pricy mags for pistols

    • floppyscience

      The magazines are $19.95. Where are you getting $49.95?

      • FourString

        Seriously. How the hell did Harley get that many likes other than from mob-mentality/monkey-see-monkey-do misinformed posters.

      • Harley W Daugherty

        sorry my comment was poorly worded, Given HK past cost of mags, i was surprised they were not in the 50$ range! .

  • AldanFerrox

    Well 19.95 Dollar isn’t very much.

    • sianmink

      They’d never be able to move any at their usual 39-49$ mag price point.

      • SUPERSOAKER

        my hk45 clips cost me $75

        • floppyscience

          Maybe if you used the factory magazines instead of having clips custom-made you wouldn’t pay so much.

  • Lance

    Besides higher price doubt these would be any better than a Lancer mag.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Except that Lancers commonly fail at the feed lips and pretty much are on a good day are only equal to a PMAG, never excel past.

      • FALster

        I came up with zero results in Googling for that (I did find quite a few Pmag feed lip failure results however). Can you forward me to some hard evidence? I know quite a few users of the Lancers that could benefit from proof of such a claim. Not trying to be a butt, just trying to get some info. I myself am content with USGI mags.

        • JumpIf NotZero

          I broke a lip off of one a previous gen ago. I have two now that have the aluminum lips and saw a picture somewhere of one of those exploded in a fantastic fashion. I’ve seen broken PMAGs too, split along the spine, but fwiw, every broken pmag I’ve seen – still feeds and functions just fine.

          These HKs might be fine, as I understand it HK has made… Unusual spring choices in the past that effect their mags.

          Life is too short but to buy anything beside M3 pmags.

          • Alex C.

            Unless you have a platform that wont take them.

          • Anon

            dude who broke one and saw a picture that one time. sounds legit. ship it

          • FALster

            Point. I will hold off forwarding this until something more substantial has been researched. Perhaps we’ll even see something of the sort posted on TFB in the future.

  • FourString

    Holy crap. $20 for an H&K magazine? Let alone one that’s built from the same materials as an original G36 mag? Sick.

    • sianmink

      It’s only $20 because they know they’d only sell a handful for the inflated G36 mag $49.95 MSRP. It’s one of the few products that H&K is forced to bow to market pressure and not charge 3x as much as everyone else.

      • FourString

        Yes, competition, ain’t it grand? Can we just celebrate that as a good thing? Or is that simply too optimistic? I certainly hope I will not be shot because of saying anything remotely positive of H&K.

  • schizuki

    Is there some middle ground between “H&K makes the superbest, awesomest, bestest-engineered weapons since Man first hurled a rock” and “H&K is over-rated, over-priced mall ninja bulls***”?

    • FourString

      as polarizing as the new lexus designs, non?

    • Hard_Harry

      There is, just not on the internet. Too many internet tough guys, that have years of experience.

  • Kyle

    MSRP – 89.99

    Because you suck, and we hate you, but so help us god do we love your money.

    • floppyscience

      What are you on about? They’re $19.95 direct from HK.

      • FourString

        probably a full out troll because there’s simply no way to arrive at 89.99 with a logical mind …

      • Kyle

        Given the cost of most H&K products, I was exaggerating. H&K USP magazines hover around 40 dollars. As much as H&K dislikes their civilian market, they sure love it’s revenue.

        I know they’re 19.99 now, because I looked at them and decided to pass on them. Usually H&K products are over priced and you mostly pay for a name.

  • http://twitter.com/Wielsucker Wielsucker

    Just recently became HK free and loving it. They hate me and I them.

    • William C

      How enlightening…

    • AnoSynum

      What a ridiculous comment. “HK free”. The sense of entitlement of some people…

      • http://twitter.com/Wielsucker Wielsucker

        Sorry if my snark offended but I’d rather spend my money with people who listen to and care about their customers. Excellent (yet still overrated and over priced) products but lousy attitude toward civilians and non LE.

        • Hard_Harry

          HK does not have a lousy attitude toward civilians. The U.S. Govt does and that constrains anyone trying to import weapons into the the U.S. And before you lay out the old “Well they should just build a factory here” line, feel free to pony up the many dozens of millions of dollars it would take to do so.

  • Pete Sheppard

    I’d like to get one for my mag collection–will they make a 20rd?

  • fjkhoury01

    Wow that thing is ribbed for her pleasure.
