Post by reads » 09 May 2009, 16:36

Is there any company other than f.n., producing mags, for the ps90?

It's nice to see other options.

I wonder if they're as durable?

I'm weary of aftermarket or will-fit replacement parts and accessories. I have had bad luck particularly with magazines. My local shop has PS-90 mags in stock for $84.99 and they are in poly bags, not the usual blue and white boxes. I should have checked the maker's mark to see if they were American Tactical.

My guess is these AT mags are being manufactured under a license agreement from FNH.

I think any patent on the mags would have ran out by now. Plus they are made overseas, and we all know how much they care about patent rights there. :laugh:

Just ask Mark Larue how he feels about them. :lmao:

I would have assumed the patents would be expired, but I remember corresponding with Mag Parts about the unrealized 100 round mag they hinted about. He noted that there were design patents still in effect. I haven't researched it so I don't know if that is true or not.

You are right about the casual attitude toward patent rights with many overseas mfgs.

New PS90 Magazines (From Tactical Innovations)

Post by moreland281 » 10 May 2009, 10:37

Has anyone tried these?
I noticed they only run $30-$35 and if they work that is not a bad deal (still looking for a PS90, but might as well get the mags while I can as well)

I have bought a LOT of guns and accessories from Gordon Miller, and trust his opinion greatly.
If he says they are quality and identical to FN mags, I would say go ahead and try one.
I have 10 mags for my ps90 but just got an AR57 upper, so I might grab a few of these. I like to have 10 mags per weapon if possible, but with mag prices lately that hasnt been possible. If these work that would be great. I would love to see more quality after market mags being produced. I own a lot of HK's and those mags are sickly expensive right now and the only alternative (Promag) sucks!!

If anyone tries these please post your results!

I'm waiting for someone to post results as well. Colt223, HK mags are on the high side, I agree. Luckily I have quite a few with each gone other other than the mk23 and I only have 5 :cya:

Just as a precursor, I have posted this information in the "Spare & Interoperable Parts" section of the Wiki.

I'm curious to hear of the results of these magazines. Now if someone would develop magazines for the FNAR...

I would do terrible things for inexpensive SPR magazines.

I just called AT and they say manufacture them and that they work well in both ar57's and ps-90's. I'm bit the bullet and order some this Friday an hopefully shoot next weekend, and report my findings.
