    I’d say the video submitters have pretty good bona fides on ARFCOM. In fact, their credibility is orders of magnitude better than the two of you combined here.

    Ok did some Google kungfu and found out that's from the ar forum. I read the post and stand by what I say. Those are not Glock carriers and they even say so. I want to hear from glock carriers and 43x and 48 carriers. I sold my 365 and bought a 43x and two 48s. I love these models. I strongly hope the S15 mags work but I'll still keep carrying the 48 either way.

    Especially buying something sight unseen that you don't even know if it's going to work. And then maybe it WILL work, until it stops working.

    I only trust Glock OEM factory magazines in my Glocks.

    I believe so. AR_Diesel was the original poster of those videos over at AR15. He claimed them.

    Before you cancel and declare the world is flat. Think for a moment about a YouTube channel being made just to complain about these mags. Um hello.

    Or you could take the view that one of the first people to receive these magazines set up the channel in order to share videos of his initial impressions and experiences that fellow shooters here and elsewhere were literally begging for. But you can believe in whatever conspiracy you want. Good luck with your purchase.

    This video feels like nothing more than a paid [by Shield Arms] infomercial.

    FYI: Dropping mags on the ground is not a torture test. It's just everyday reality for most of us.

    So you prefer a biased opinion?

    I would love to get hundreds of reviews from hundreds of people. If 80% say somethings awful then its prolly awful. If two people say it sucks and two more says it's great well that's not very helpful.

    Every opinion is biased.

    A few have been shipped but most preorders have not been sent yet. Still waiting on mine that was ordered on the first preorder day. So yea come back in a month or three.

    If I would have known I would still be waiting in December for my preorder made September I would not have spent the $250 for 6 of these. How about that for an honest review.

    I don't think people who are looking to buy these are interested in the pre-order experience.
