    I've tried a few mag couplers over the years and my favorite to date is the Magpul MagLink. Here's what I've found while using it over the last few months:

    Pros:
    -Durable. This mag coupler has held up to banging around in my range bag, swapping mags many times, and all the shooting I can dish out to it without missing a beat.
    -USA made
    -For those living in states that don't respect The Constitution with their magazine capacity limits, it gives you a way to have an extra mag at the ready.
    -Works with both the MOE Pmag and the GEN M3 Pmags
    -Easy to put together
    -Can be configured in a couple ways so it doesn't interfere with manipulating the controls of the AR for both right and left handed ARs
    -Very lightweight
    -Cost. I picked it up for $14.95 shipped


    Cons:
    -Weight. Having 60 rounds hanging from your rifle increases the weight; no getting around that.
    -Some people that have used it think changing mags is awkward. I haven't found that but your mileage may vary....

    Here's a video with some shooting, mag changes, and a discussion of the products hits and misses:

    I wouldn't mind one of those on the truck gun.

    Thanks for the review!

    its a great product. IMO, the best cincher for the PMAGS (duh). I only use mine on matches though and never once cross my mind about using it for anything else. unless im going to war. the cons you listed are not really accurate.

    1)weight = no duh, 60 vs 30 rounds
    2) its push and pull...

    i have something similar for my 15 round mags, works great. One thing I found is the magazine not in the rifle should cover the bolt release, that way when you reload you have easy access to the release.

    I'd say they're accurate :dunno: You stated 'no duh' that they weigh more so you seem to agree as well.

    I'm aware of push pull but some people have said it feels more natural to just do a standard mag change. I don't have an opinion either way but a couple guys that have used mine have said that...

    Thanks.

    Not to derail, but could you give a quick summary of the second rifle in the video? Really like the looks of it.

    I've got a full one in the works but here's a summary:

    PSA A2 Premium upper/barrel
    MI Gen2 rail (15'')
    PSA lower, lower build magpul kit w/ STR stock
    Magpul MBUS
    BCM BCG

    It's a great rifle--very accurate and hasn't had a failure yet with a steady diet of steel ammo :supergrin:
