Ive heard people rave about them.  Also heard people say they had issues, and that they were coming out with a new revision to address the issues.  As far as I know, the new revision is not out yet, but I dont follow them too closely to be 100%.

To me, I would rather buy Magpuls for the same price.  I have also been running Lancers when I can grab them on sale.  I really like the smoke and translucent FDE Lancer's.

I bought six on a sale.  I haven't had a chance to actually shoot with them yet.  The polymer is 'slicker' that a magpul  and seems not as robust IMHO.  The hexmags would benefit from the hex tape they sell, I think.

I have inserted and dropped the Hexmags in my ARs with no problem and they all have manually fed rounds without issue.

I too, would just stick to PMAGS if at the same price point.

I bought some just to sit aside.  I got 12 on the deal the poster mentioned above. 

I have not even opened one up to mess with it.  Just bought em to sit on til someone cries about prices or availability or I get bored and mess with em.

I'm one of the people that had issues with them puking rounds out all over the place.

I got a few that i've never loaded and they seem ok. I don't know if its just because i'm used to pmags but they don't feel as sturdy. I got for like 8$ and free shipping so i purchased a few to add to the stash.
