Do you get any problems with getting them into standard PLCE mag pouches? (I am assuming we are talking about the little rubber things that go over the end of the mag, with a loop on?)

Top bit of kit,
Goes against the skillies who tell you to have the mags uppermost in your pouches, great if you want to loose the top round!
I've always gone with mags down so the magpuls have taken over from my harry black and paracord improvisation!

I'm Skill at Bullets, but I would clearly tell all I were training to place Mags Down, always have done for the reason stated. (That is also taught on the course)

Well i've never had a problem with mag down on A1/A2, so i'll stick with it if it's right or wrong! with my magpul.

Has anyone used the dust caps for mags too, not sure if they are made by magpul? Not sure how practical they are?

Are you a SAA Instr or SASC?

The SASC have always preached never to put magazines top down to prevent damage to the lips of the mag.

I am SAA and always place them top down, so as never to loose the first round.

Going back to the gucci magplus bit of kit, way back on Telic 1, I acquired a similar piece of kit from the Yanks. It was a clear rubber cover that fitted over the top of the mag, it easily flipped off with your thumb prior to fitting the mag to your weapon, and as well as keeping the top round in place it kept sand out, fantastic!!

the_mentalist - I 1st saw the dust cap things in Kuwait in 2002, but didn't think i'd need any 2 months later on OP Telic thinking they would have been a good buy!

I think the Yanks were issued them, they gave me a bag full. I kept 4 for myself and gave the rest to my blokes, I would recomend them.

I've always gone mag down for three reasons:

1. Don't lose first round.
2. Don't have to change grip in order to put the magazine on the weapon.
3. I can see which are the full ones (I always place part/fully empties mag up).
