For all of you skeptics out there, be a believer. These little mag assists are extremely useful for quickly switching magazines. If you really take a look at the design, MagPul actually put a lot more detail into these diminutive accessories than what meets the eye at first. The lower part of the mag assist where you put your finger has a hill-like shape to it and a nice grip texture to it. When you look at it, it seems like the whole thing has a rough texture to it, but its smooth and has a cool feel to it. The trademarks enhance the overall look of it. One side says 5.56 NATO CAGE 1LX50 and the other side says MAGPUL PAT. 6,212,815. I hear that the common belief for the mag assists is that they are easy to slip on and you need tape to keep them secure onto the magazine. I will tell you that's NOT true. First off, they are pretty difficult to get on an M4 magazine. You kind of have to get one end in and then stretch the other end to get it on the other side of the magazine. Then sliding it down to the correct position is pretty easy. Contrary to popular belief, you do NOT have to use tape to keep it on, at least for M4 mags. They stay extremely tight onto the mag, and the only way to get them off is by pulling it but not pressing the mag release. Overall very good product, especially for the fact that they only cost $3.31 a piece. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to speed up their magazine-switching time and wants to spice up their good.
P.S. - They look REALLY good on tan mags
