Hexmag is introducing a new magazine color to the lineup, the Hexmag Dark Gray. Looks like this is the season of “gray” coloring. I’m glad we have moved on from the various brown colors–is our time in the desert is coming to an end…?
Hexmag Dark Gray magazines will be available in 30 round, 15 round and 10 round capacities.
I’ve always preferred Magpul, and have never used the Hexmags. Can anyone give a comparison from a “real world” perspective? I know we did a review last year (http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2014/05/01/gear-review-hexmag-hx30-ar-ar-15-magazine/) but I am not a fan of driving over mags to evaluate their hardiness. Do they hold up to daily use and getting banged around in kit? Do they shed sand and mud and other environmental guck?
So, why do you readers think the industry is now pushing gray variants? Are we moving into a “clandestine” phase? Are we moving away from “scary black rifles” and toward “mundane gray rifles”? Thoughts?
I’m assuming the MSRP will be at the $14.99 price of the others. For more information go to Hexmag.com.
