Moses 20rd Mag for SCAR 17S

IMG_07721-1000x300

There is a newcomer to SCAR17S magazines. Moses Mag makes polymer 20 rd magazines here in the US. Previously, the only other polymer magazine, for the SCAR17S, was the Molon Labe Industries magazines. The Molon Labe magazines have inconsistent performance. General consensus is they work, but are not as reliable as the factory magazines.

Moses Mag sells their magazine for $27.99. Moses Mag, started making polymer FAL magazines. For those not familiar with the SCAR 17H/S, the magazine is a modified FAL magazine. The feed lips are slightly different, and there is a side magazine catch notch for the SCAR mags. You can actually modify FAL mags to work in a SCAR17 with a little dremel work.

They posted on their website on 6/13/2015 that they completed the injection mold. They say that their polymer magazines are 40% lighter than the factory metal magazines.

I like the baseplate design. It is a 7.62×51 round that looks like it is traveling thru the air. Slight issue, is that it is a complete round and not the projectile but that is just nitpicking. It is a cool design. From the looks of the baseplates, they will be molded in OD Green and FDE. But at the moment, only black magazines are for sale.

Here is a photo of the SCAR 17 magazines right out of the mold. You can see two are still conjoined by the molding sprue.

Here is a video of them test firing the magazines.

    I have to wait for a review. Otherwise I am sticking with factory steel mags.

    Good for you, Johnny, for making the big time.

    Maybe the floorplate design was made by Cave Johnson. That’s 65% more bullet per bullet!

    • Rabies

      If that was the case, I would want the base plate to have a lemon on it.

    Maybe I’m OCD, but that baseplate design would irritate the hell out of me. Sure its a minor detail, but in my mind if their willing to overlook such a simple and obvious design flaw, what else will they overlook?

    • Laserbait

      I have to wonder why people think that design looks like an atmospheric pressure wave. Must be victims of Common Core physics, sigh…

    • Paladin

      Maybe I’m not OCD, but……no wait, I am, diagnosed by a fancy head doctor and everything. Even then, I can calm myself down, and ask myself, did they design it like that for a reason? If they did not do this on purpose, and overlooked such a simple and obvious design flaw, then I agree with Laserbait. Screw the bullet! They really expect me to believe that the pressure wave of a round going through the air looks like that?

      Or maybe they designed it like that on purpose. Perhaps to make it big enough to print the full caliber on there, to cover their themselves against idiots. Perhaps it was designed to show aforementioned idiots exactly how the round goes in, so they don’t do something stupid and blast these guys online. Or perhaps it was designed that way just to get under your skin.

      Sorry for the rant, but as an engineer/designer it gets really annoying when people criticize you for HOW you executed something without giving a damn about the WHY. Even worse when they assume they know the WHY.

    Incorrect. DDM Supply LLC makes a polymer Scar 17S magazine.

      Oh didn’t hear about those. Thanks.

      • махатма ганди

        Thermold makes a polymer SCAR 17 magazine.

  • Mr. Kill

    The FAL mags are good. Same baseplate.

  • Christos

    Molon Labe Industries just released their new GEN2 magazines and there are no inconsistencies in the new magazines.
