The Amend2 Mod 2 Magazines are exceptional quality polymer magazines with improved features comparative to their original magazine design, and many shooters would say: comparative to other polymer magazines on the market including longstanding, well-reviewed magazines. What is absolutely clear, is that Amend 2 mags are built to take a beating and are built to a very high level of detail and precision, which is more than most polymer magazines can say. The anti-corrosion stainless steel magazine springs offer simple, smooth operation and doesn’t get spring strain which can cause failures to fire or feeding concerns. The 30 round magazine (the MOD2 variant is available in 10; 20 and 30 round capacities and in a few different colorways) is able to be easily locked into place without a ton of struggle unlike many polymer magazines under a closed bolt. They also have little to no flex and cannot be overloaded by an extra round or two. This is capable of being used in any variant of the AR platform that is chambered for the 5.56/.223 and most shooters have expressed good compatibility with even heavy grain .300 AAC Blackout cartridges. The smooth loading of the magazines is a benefit of the very robust magazine follower and the well-tuned spring. The interior cavity is smooth, and the magazine is both durable and finely finished. The magazines are well reviewed for their reliability and solid build quality.
The MOD2 variant offers a few changes that are mostly cosmetic, but do offer some functionality improvement, mostly attributed to finer finishes on edges including the bottom plate and the new finger grooves and relief cut patterns. The follower is truly an anti-tilt design that has a much heavier stature than competitor followers, and the reliability proves this design feature as credible. The magazines can be Cerakoted due to the finish quality and the way it is designed if you intend to match custom Cerakoted firearms. The magazine is easily disassembled by pressing in a very large #2 shaped spring-loaded plate which is proprietary to this manufacturer. These are perfect replacements for standard steel or aluminum bodied AR-15 magazines or other mil-spec/mil-surplus mags that aren’t able to reliably produce the type of results that a modern design magazine can for the varied shooting scenarios of the civilian shooter. The dents that were common in aluminum and steel magazines, as well as the follower issues, baseplate fitment concerns and mag lip deformation are no longer issues when you employ the services of the Amend2 MOD 2 magazines.
