MPX 20rd mag..... purpose?

Recommended Posts

Hello.  I am new to the MPX platform and am assembling support gear before mine arrives. Has anyone found a purpose for a shorter length 20 Rd mag vs the longer length of a 30rnd. Prone position,low port or roof top type props come you mind but perhaps these are a non issue with the 30s w/o an extension.. Also what is a preferred mag pouch? Thanks.

It’s easier to reload the shorter 20 rounder during classifiers.

Funny, I actually reload way better with my big stick.  Go figure.  20s are good as first mags to drop in the dirt on classifiers but more so for rooftops.

Agreed above!  I use the 20 rd  to start and reload with big stick during mandatory reload classifiers/stage!

check out webertactical.com for the awesome pouches!

goodluck

I run the Weber Tactical mag pouch for the MPX. Works perfect, and best one on the market that I've seen.

Thanks for the input. Probably worth having one 20. I'll check out the mag pouches also.

Also, if you trim the base plate spring guide you can run 24 rounds.

Damn!  I'll check that set up out. Is there   a specialty mag spring to use with such?. Lot of weight on the mag release,no?

cant tell a difference in controls and it uses the stock pair of mag springs one of the factory spring pad as a pairing plate.  it's not my go to mag for uspsa because it's work to clean out and bends forward fairly far since it's so long for low port shots, just use a 30 with tti +11 as it's field cleanable for dropping outdoors.  but when you need 50+ rds its awesome, i put together a pair and theyve both been great.

You can do the same for the 30 round mags so you can put 34 rounds in it.

I use them as first mag for classifiers. Less curve = less likely to hang up in the magwell.

Not sure you need a 20 rounder. I have one that I use as a drop mag for classifiers. I reload to big sticks too. Even using a 30 rounder to reload too its easy to get you thumb jammed between the mag and mag well. It sucks! Don't do it! Trust me and learn from my mistakes....

Going prone without monopoding on the mag.

 

More easily limiting the shooting of someone who wants to try your mpx out.

As others, sometimes use the 20 for first mag on classifiers, but usually just keep with my standard 30s for classifiers, easier to reload.

 

RE mag pouches, RHT is the bomb.
