Troy Industries 30-Round BattleMag - Black
Ratings & Reviews
I'm buying more right now
by Elliott -
I dont know what all the negative comments are about this mag. It has worked flawlessly and fits great. I know a lot of people are complaining about the disassembly of it but if you don't go super aggressive and just do what the instructions say, you wont break it like many people are saying in the comments
A Good Mag...But Not Great.
by wolf_pack1998 -
This mag looks and feels flimsier than a PMAG, but I assure you...it's very reliable. This mag has run FLAWLESSLY through three ARs. It's slim profile from top to bottom fits and seats inside the mag well w/out any issues. The grip texture feels good in the hand when handling it. NOTE: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS before attempting to remove the bottom plate. If not careful, you could break off one or both retaining tabs. Overall, if you're looking for a good, reliable and cheaper PMAG alternative, these Battlemags are good.
A Good Magazine...Not Great.
by wolf_pack1998 -
Even though this mag looks and feels flimsier than a PMAG, it has run flawlessly through three ARs. I like the slim profile and grip texture when handling the mag. It also seats in the mag well w/out any issues. NOTE: READ THE INSTRUCTIONS on how to remove/reinstall the plate. You could easily break off one or both of the retaining tabs. Overall, a good, reliable and cheaper alternative to a PMAG.
Great magazines at a great price.

I recently picked up 10 of these on sale here at PA. As usual shipping was fast. Functioned perfectly in 2 different guns with 3 different types of ammo. I have many different types of pmags, lancers, metal mags and others and these troy mags performed the exact same as all of the others. Will buy more when they are on sale again.
Go to magazine
by Matthew -
This is my go to magazine, runs in all my lowers without issue. Also works with 204 ruger cartridge for those shooters running a varmint rifle.

These are decent mags for plinking and target..I've tried them in Spikes, Anderson, and Aero lowers with no problems...Catch them on sale for six bucks and they are well worth it...The "trick" to swapping out the floor is to very lightly secure the mag in a vice so that both your hands are free. Then using a punches, dowels, or whatever you have that will depress the tabs, GINGERLY push in on both tabs simultaneously. When the tabs are just inside the mag walls, lightly use the tools to push the floor upwards and out of the mag..Basically just work both side at the same time. Takes about 20 seconds.
Over 10 in use and zero issues.
Looks like all the negative reviews are from people who broke them switching base plates. I have switched them out on all of mine without ever breaking one, so it is 100% user error causing this. Great mags that work and are cheap right now.
by howard -
No problems with them in 3 different AR's..A little loose in the Spikes lower, but it doesn't effect function. They seem fairly durable, although made from a little thinner material than Magpul, but should hold up just fine for plinking and target practice. I didn't try replacing the bottom, so can't speak to that..Caught them on sale for six bucks, so I stocked up, and I'm happy with them..Will buy more if I catch them on sale again..If they're not on sale, I'd throw in a couple more bucks and get P-Mags.
No Issues good magazines
by PaulS -
I purchased 2 of these last November 2016 from PA and have been using them on and off for over a year now with no issues. I've kept them loaded for around 6 months and did not have any issues after that either. Overall they seem to be reliable and decently constructed. I haven't attempted to replace the base plate so I can't speak to that. I consider these good range mag's and stop short at calling them battle mags as there are plenty of other higher quality mags that I would consider for that. I have not had any failures with these magazines including bolt hold open. Great deal for the cost!
by Corbett -
Used them on my 300 and worked just fine. Would def buy again. Shipping on this order was kind of slow, but not Primarys fault. Items ordered from Virginia but went to California before heading east.
We've been impressed
by CHRIS -
I'm surprised by the negative reviews. We've been running these almost exclusively for 556 since around 2012; maybe longer. We have over 50 of these in rotation and have not had any magazine related failures to the best of my knowledge. I don't think we've had any magazines break either because we're still running mags from the original batch. They ran 300blk perfectly too when we used them for that. We've since switched to lancer for 300blk to avoid loading incorrect ammo. My favorite thing about the battlemags is how easy they stack and pull from punches. The ones we have hold 31 or 32 rounds if you cram them in, so with the appropriate 30 rounds they easily load with a closed bolt. Maybe they've changed things in the last year or two but the ones we have are great. Just thought I'd share our experience.
Troy,what were you thinking?try again
by Randy -
Decent.loads and feeds fairly smoothly,reliable.nice visible blue follower.mag body is slippery despite narrow band of texture on corners.
<br>Baseplate designed by a moron.if you disassemble to maintain or swap flat floor plate for included pull tab you will likely break the tiny idiotic locking tabs used to secure it and good luck getting it back together.just a stuipid design that ruins an otherwise good mag.ok for plinking or target practice.i wont trust with my life. I got on sale for $6 ea.otherwise id return.stick to Pmags,Lancer,G.I.mags
Cheap for a reason..lesson learned
by Jeff -
Ordered 4 of these just cause they were on sale. Opener one and went to switch out the floor plate for the grab tab just to see if I liked it. Putting it back together and the tabs that lock into the magazine body broke clean off. I'll stick with pmags.
These mags are junk. If you attempt to remove the base plate you will most likely destroy the retaining tabs that hold the base plate on. The plastic is extremely soft. I assumed that since Troy is a quality parts manufacturer, these would be decent mags. I was very wrong.
Cheap plastic mags
by Mark- -
Cheap plastic mags. The side is shiny and slick poor design floor plates tabs will break.
<br>Side by side with Magpul no contest.
<br>I will give a long thought before I purchase another Troy product.
Excellent mags for your AR and double pouches. Feed and Fit Well!
by Raymond -
Great mags, Double up nicely in mag pouches. Seat well when SMACKED! and always drop free. I've used them in several different rifles with the same results.
You get what you pay for.
by Ryan -
You get what you pay for with these. They feel noticably weaker than most other polymer magazines, almost like they are made out of the same ABS that toys are made from. If you try to install the pull tabs that protrude from the bottom plate, you are almost certain to break the locking ears off to get them off unless you are painstakingly careful. Once these break, your mag is totaled. Stick to standard aluminum mags if you are that hard up for cash. Or pay the extra money for the proven Magpul PMAGs or Daniel Defense polymer mags. These are pretty much disposeable.
by JOHNNIE -
Bought 3 of these to try out will not buy again the tabs on base broke when I was adding the pull piece only broke on 2 but will stick with pmags
Worst feed ammo
by David -
I agree the magazine fits in the reciever fine but ammo keeps jamming up and wont feed. I do not have this problem with any other magazine but one of these (I ordered two but only tried one so far). Jammed up because it looks like the follower does not keep the ammo at the correct angle so it wont work at all with more than 20 reds in it.
Great magazines !
My favorite magazines! Drops free everytime in all my rifles. Functions flawlessly. Magpul, Hex, Amend 2 magazines don't always drop free. Can't go wrong with Troy or Primary arms!
these mags run flawless. they are durable as all hell. for the guy who says he can't get them to seat in the magwell slap them in don't baby them mags are meant to be seated with the bolt open but obviously you can seat them with the bolt closed but you know you gotta slap them in these are tools not fine china.
Troy battle magazines
Very nice definitely in the top 3 out there. When on sale at 1/2 price ($7.99ea) buy as many as you can. Thanks Primary Arms.
well built but......
I bought five of these magazines on sale and they are well built; however they all seem to have a hard time staying in my mag well. my magpul lancers and GI mags do not have this problem. If they would stay they would be great.
Troy Battlemag-Will Get The Job Done
They work just as they are suppose to...however I am not thrilled about the fitting (hint the 4 star). When properly mounted in the magazine well they move back and forth alot more than I want for a battle mag. So for battle set ups it's back to the Magpul's but practice/training Troy's will do just fine!
Good reliable mags
These are nice mags. When there on sale buy as many as you can
