« on: March 04, 2018, 04:53:26 AM »
Hi Guys,

Been a while since I've been on.
I'm wanting to buy some magazines.  Which generates a couple questions.  Has Remington done any mods on the magazines since the second edition was released?  Do any of you have a good source for magazines and do you think some have a stock of older ones?  Don't really want to pay almost $40 from big green, but also don't want to pay $30 for an older version. (if that's the case).  Any suggestions?
I have been one of the fortunate ones who have had zero issues with my R51.

Thanks,
Rog

I bought four back in July from J&G Sales online about $22 each + shipping.
P/N 17696 retail blister package "Copyright 2016"
Identical to the two that came with my Gen2... Joe

Check out Grabagun online. I just bought 3 mags yesterday for $15.35 each. They were a little cheaper last week. These are Remington factory mags.

Definitely good advice Rog. They are the cheapest I have found so far.

Rog,
     If you can get the latest mags from Big Green, I believe the 2018 mags are
better and  have been modified.  Although Big Green has not said so.
I have 8 Mags.  First 7,  I got in 2017 had to modify them to get them to work.
I got number 8 in February, and it runs like a Singer Sewing Machine.
So could have Remington have modified the mags without telling us?

Rocky,
     Let us know, if they are in vacuum packs, or wrapped in plastic.

You will be the second to know.   I am shipping off Charlotte to have her mag release pin fixed...same problem that I had with Huntsville but that seems resolved.

I bought 3 magazine from Grabagun for my R51. They arrived yesterday. They are Remington factory mags in the cardboard and blister pack packaging.

So I got some from Remington that were loose in a bubble mailer (I expected them in factory packaging), and you buy them from a separate party and they come in factory packaging. Sheesh. What's up with that?

I do not know. When I had my original problems with my mags Remington sent me two that arrived in bubble-wrap envelopes. The ones I ordered from Grabagun came in the green Remington aftermarket package. According to Grabagun the part number on these is the same as the factory mags.

I think I will try Grabagun next time. Thanks for posting Pat!
