I assume from Plinker Tactical, but there is no information about price, availability or where to buy.

No I tried months ago. They only sell to distributors. Tacticool22 was going to carry them and were suppose to have them weeks ago but it doesn't look like Plinker Tactical is holding up to their ends with getting these out by their projected date.

OP how did you get ahold of yours???

Distributors???

Name a distributor other than TactiCool22 who is carrying the PT charging handle. Only one other place has ever listed it, that I can find, and they never actually shipped any.

I'm not bad-mouthing TactiCool22, I like their products, but as it stands they are the exclusive dealer of the charging handle and probably will be for the magazines, is my prediction.

I was told by Plinker Tactical that they are sending them to RSR Group, and they won't be the only ones getting them...

I heard from a little birdy that Tacticool prob will not be carrying these. They were suppose to have them weeks ago and Plinker Tactical did not come through. Im sure Tacticool will chime if if they are going to carry these. Its not Tacticools fault.

I would not get my hopes up.

I will email Plinker Tactical today and ask if these available for export. Their mags and charging handle may fall under ITAR rules. If they do then they would not be available for sale outside of the USA.

I got the magazine direct from Plinker for review purposes. Not sure when they will hit the distributors. I do know the mags took longer to develop than expected.

Isn't Buds the place that had that CC info breech recently? I seem to remember that people had a bunch of fraudulent items charged to their accounts till they got it straightened out. I am not sure I'd be willing to buy from them till I known they have the problem straightened out.

Midway has them too, but more expensive...Plinker Tactical Mag S&W M&P 15-22 22 Long Rifle 35-Round Polymer

You could use a money order for Buds and not worry about CC.

If you look at the dates from the Bud's thread, the CC info breach was last year.

Still in the evaluation phase. The first couple I tested had feed issues. I have been working closely with the good folks at Plinker giving them feed back on the issues. I have been told they have corrected them. New magazine will be here today. Testing to begin this weekend.

I'm not the exclusive dealer of the charging handle, but I am the number one seller.
I decided to not carry ANY magazine because of all the rules and regulations covering them. There is enough in the States, let alone international laws.

That's what grandchildren are for - except that I wound up being the designated loader for my 8-year grandson. He can empty 11 25-round magazines faster than I can reload them!

Forget the speedloaders, I need to have me a son.

My sister will probably beat me to it. Then I can steal him when I go shooting. I can't wait to give my nephew his first firearm.

Ha!

A week later and I get the news I'm going to be an uncle.
Let me try something. My sister needs to win the lottery, but I'll probably beat her to it.

So a little up date.

I have gone through 4 of the Plinker Tactical 35 round magazines in my 15-22. The rifle was purchased new in April of this year. No mods and has always been flawless with the 4 Smith & Wesson 25 round mags I have.

Things are not so pleasant with the Plinker mags. I have yet been able to get through a full mag without a fail to feed, or fail to eject issue. Many time the first round is the only round that will feed. My Gun just does not like these mags.

I have a friend that has a new in July of this year 15-22, and his has no issues with these mags. It will cycle all 35 rounds and ask for more. Go figure.

We have swapped bolts for his gun to mine, and from my gun to his, with the same results. His works fine, mine will not.

I plan to try and swap uppers this weekend, and see if this changes things. Till then I wish all those who have purchased the Plinker 35 round mag the best.

A few picture to follow.

Do you think the springs may be torqued a little when the mags are fully loaded? Does it look like there may be more spring pressure than necessary with the whole 35 rounds?

There has to be some reason why the rounds are cockeyed in the one photo.

It looks as if the feed lips on the PT are not as "tight" as on the factory magazine.

Check your ejector bar. I know it works, but it may not work well enough.

Also notice how the PT is off set to the left, evident by the bolt stop.
