This is interesting:

You’re going to need a 9mm or .40 compatible upper assembly obviously for this to work, but this is pretty cool.

0:21 – hahah I lost it when he did the cutting with a karambit.  I don’t know why, but I always associate those knives with guys who wear fedoras and have transition lenses in their glasses.  I know some guys aren’t going to like the idea of cutting their Glock mags, but worst case scenario you can dedicate a couple mags to just this setup.

Coming summer 2017  – $75 MSRP according to the website.  Thoughts?

TacDaddy does An interview with a guy from the company, explaining this new magazine:

Man… shooting range interviews.  There always has to be someone mag dumping some type of cannon as soon as a camera starts rolling haha *smh*.  I know those guys are at Big 3 to demonstrate their products, but they should have a quieter area where interviews are done or something.

Here’s a video from the company demonstrating its functionality:

TorkMag’s dual spring, balanced torque system actively equalizes force on the nose and tail of loaded rounds, preventing the bolt- over-base and bullet nose diving malfunctions that have plagued large magazines.  Because their workload is shared, both springs can be scaled down without sacrificing optimum resistance and reliability. The springs’ reduced footprint beneath the follower allows our design to be highly space efficient.

Torkmag-AR15-Magazine$22 for the 35 round magazine, $40 for the 50 round stilt over at TorkMag.  Oh wow, a new company WITH a functional website, and products in stock… that rarely happens.  If it functions as well in reality, I like the idea.  Sure a 2nd spring is another potential point of failure, I get it.  Any operators want to weigh in?  Is this a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist since anti-tilt followers were invented?
