Very Cool Mags.
by Mark from Orlando -
Got three of these for my S&W M&P AR because I thought they looked cool, and I wanted that transparent window for easy ammo view. They are very cool, work flawlessly so far, are nice and solid, good craftsmanship and consistency, and fit very well. No complaints here.
Looks nice (may require work)

Has a tab on the back which I assume is to prevent over-insertion. Have to file that down to get the mag to seat in in a lower with a flared magwell. Feeds fine after that.

Does not work with Spike Industries cobra trigger guard. Mag gets stuck, could dremel off the front lip but I was disappointed. All other brands of mags have worked with cobra just not this one. Cool design and very light

I figured I would give the HERA mag a shot and compare to others in the market place. I am not disappointed at all with this product. I ran this mag on my Saint, Savage, S&W, Aero Precision, and Anderson without any glitches or hitches. The mag appears to be well built and functioned flawlessly. I closely examined and compared this mag to others in my inventory and the engineering is second to none.
Lucky to get 2 stars - don't know how others can rate higher....

So, I'm not sure how other people can give this thing more than 2 stars... The magazine that I received didn't even fit my PSA lower's magwell. It didn't fit my other anderson lower either. WAAAAY too tight. To state that it'll drop free is laughable, being that you can barely get it all the way inserted - mine got stuck. After about 45 minutes of sanding, it finally fits, and FINALLY drops free. I bought it because it has a great look to it. But overall, it's pretty garbage. Also, not compatible with stripper clips unless you cut a groove in the sides for a spoon or mag loader.
It gets the stars that it gets because after some work, it actually does work alright, and doesn't jam. Too many downsides to order another though. :/
1st Look and Impression

It get 4 stars FOR NOW until I get to the range to see how it performs in the field. Out of the package it looks GREAT!! The window on the back is larger then Magpul is nice and clear and has serrations on it and on the front of the mag. They are not as serrated as I would like but it has a good feel and grip to it. It DOSE insert into my PSA lower with ease and ejects just as good. Same with my Sons of Liberty lower. It holds 31 ROUNDS!Yes it holds 31 rounds and still inserts with the bolt foward/closed with ease!! I loaded it by hand witch I had no problems and was easy. I also used my Caldwell AR-15 Mag Charger. It feed all 30rds with ease. It did unload easy with just a push with my thumb. Last the polymer body dose not seem as thick as Magpul and is lighter. As of now would I recommend it? Definitely yes. I will post a final review this Sunday 9-22-19
1st Look and Impression Part 2
by Jason -
So the mag work perfectly. It feed with Wolf brass and steel casings. 55 and 62 grain. Even shot green tip 5.56. Even after throwing it on the floor, covering with dirt and dusting it off it ran perfectly. Now I read a few reviews 1st the Strike Industries Corba trigger guard(not Spike) on the back of the mag there is a tiny piece of polymer that hits the mag well to stop the mag from inserting to much. It hits the cobra mag assist part. All I did was take a knife and took a thin slice off and it worked fine. These mags are great and suggest buying.
Great, very inexpensive magazines
I've got 6 of these magazines, that I've had and used regularly for about a year, and I'm ordering more as I write this review. I bought them because I wanted some inexpensive window magazines to use on my training course where I train and teach home defense combat tactics. They have all held up great to heavy use. I've fired pretty much any factory load .223 and 5.56 ammunition through these magazines and never had any issues. They even cycle blanks with no failures. They are regularly dropped from the receiver to the ground on my course, kicked, stepped on, and just generally not given a ton of love, and aside from a few scuffs from their rougher-than-usual life, they've held up perfectly. They fit securely and drop free from multiple Anderson lowers, my Tactical Machining lower, JoeBob lower, and my Spikes lower. I've had quite a few students ask what magazines they were so they could order some.
PMAGS = Trash but Keep in mind....
Done with P-Mags. these magazines are perfect, the best part is that the window allow you to see the full 30 rounds, this is the reason why this magazine will be a bit longer than the traditional length. If you have issues seating this mag into your mag well it's because you put an extra round too much. it Fits 30 comfortably and still sits and drops free, when I added the 31st round it bulged it the top.

Work flawlessly no hang ups, no failure to feed just a thing of sound engineering.
