I don't need to do a prepay to get things going, was just going to offer it here to the falfiles members so they would have a chance at the first run of mags.

I would not offer this until after the mags have been approved and thoroughly tested!

I appreciate the offers for testers, at this time I think I have that covered.

I would hope I will be using moses mags exclusively at the GA. FAL match May 7th, and I would also hope all testing and such will have long since been finished.

I plan on documenting tests on video, and most certainly will be doing some testing with a couple full auto FAL's we have at CMP Armory.

I will not release the mags until they are fully tested and meet all my stringent requirements.

I plan on offering a limited lifetime guarantee on my moses mags.
So no one should have any worries.

Now that gives me a warm fuzzy!

With that offer, I'd be willing to pre-pay for two mags.

Thanks moses!!!

While I'd be interested, I live in Kali. I stocked up before our ban(about 20 mags).

Molds are still being made, takes a while!

I had a Pmag analyzed to find out exactly what polymer they are made from so that the Moses mag can be just as tough if not tougher!!!!!

If it helps, I think they used the same stuff that goes into those international shipping pallets (the ones that are used when they cant use wood due to fear of bug infestations).

That stuff is wicked strong, we had a few of those at our high-bay back when I was in CE and this guy in my shop ran over one in a Hyster 5k fork-truck. It held up.

With the limited first run how many people would like to pre-pay to insure getting there mags in the first run?

Price will be $23.99 per mag.
Are these the 25round mags? If so, I'm in for 5 Black, prepay OK.

Cheers

First mags are gonna be the 20 round mags.

If they are successful enough I will then use that capitol to fund the 25 rounders.

If I do the prepay it will not be until I have tested and approved the proto types.

Good idea to wait for the testing to be done before taking prepay. Just think about all the angry posts people make when other companies take forever to ship after taking payment!

If these are as tough as a Pmag then these will be a huge success. That is all I use in my ARs these days, and they are awesome. Have a couple friends who have been over in Iraq and Afghanistan and they told me that is what everyone uses if they have a choice in it because they are so much more reliable and lighter than the standard mags.

OK talked to the molders today and the mold for the floorplate, follower and inside bottom plate is almost complete, they are just doing some touch up/finishing work on it and should be running parts in the next 2 weeks.
The mold for the mag body is about halfway complete.
I was told I should have mags to test in January!!!!!!!!
That would mean January 2011!!!!!

This pic has some design lines in it that aren't gonna be there of course but I had to use this version for the logo to show up.

No design lines but logo doesn't show up.





This is just the prototype mag made out of a super glue type substance.
Color is not correct and lines and shape are not nearly as defined as the real mag will be.
Also some minor cosmetic changes have been made to the final design which are not present on the prototype.
It does give you a good idea of what it will look like in your FAL though.

sweeet, Moses the savior!

so theoretically speaking do you know how many will need to be made in the first batch after the proto is approved, so that no one is left without?
Or will you take a final tally after the proto testing?

cheers

just in case, I'm in for 6 20rounders and 6 25rounders when they're finally available

As of right now I am gonna do 2000 on the first run.

I am told that it should only take 4 to 5 weeks at the most for subsequent runs so people shouldn't have to wait too long if I run out.
