Thermold AR Mag

I acquired a high capacity Thermold mag today. It is marked "THERMOLD D&D Inc. Wilson N.C. It has a spring loaded extension that pops down. Any Ideas on the particulars on this magazine?

Re: Thermold AR Mag

"As I recall", the Thermold was set up so you could load it and store it with little spring pressure.
When you needed it, you would shove the bottom section up and this would provide the spring tension needed to feed the ammo.
This allowed storing the mag long term with no worriers about the spring weakening.

"As I recall", the Thermold was not a very good magazine, and seemed to have a lot of problems.

Re: Thermold AR Mag

Thanks dfariswheel. I'll just have to try it and see. I have a lot of mags for Ar's so if it isn't a keeper, so what. The price was right. Worse that could happen is that I get my moneys worth.
