I came across this magazine in early 2013, I was looking for extra mags for my S&W 15-22 at a local gun show, but no one had any factory mags for sale, but they did have plenty of these 35 rounders, plenty of vendors were willing to sell me as many as I wanted, but the average price of $35 made me think about it real hard. As I walked down to the last booth, I decided I had to make a purchase because I did not want to feel like I wasted a $10 entry fee.
As I was grabbing for a couple boxes of .38 rounds and an AR15 ProMag magazine for $7.50, the vendor told me he was willing to let the Plinker Tactical mag go for $19, so I took it.
Off to the range I go, I start to load the mag and from the get go, I note to myself that this is the last magazine I will be buying from Plinker Tactical, it has no thumb assist for the spring and I was only willing to load 30 rounds due to the fear of damaging the rounds, as I write this and have visited plinkertactical.com, I notice that they must have plenty of complaint because they offer a "load assist" for $7.99. Now to the positive, it is made of a durable polymer and I did not have any problems inserting it into the rifle and have not had a problem cycling rounds.
