Review: Background
Looking to complete my 416 I needed a quality magazine that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg and still look cool. This was really the only magazine that matched what I needed as other magazines sit too far in front of the trigger to look authentic AND they're more expensive.

Inspection
When I received the package I wasn't too surprised, it was loosely packed in a zip-lock bag with everything you need ('cept for allen keys). The instructions are very simple and practically redundant, though it's a nice touch to complete the package anyways.

Installation
Just as I said above, installation is very simple. The magazine replaces the two pushpins around the tombstone as well as the foregrip, though you can actually remove the bracket that attaches to the foregrip nut so you can still use it. Anyways, the magazine just slides over the tombstone and braided steel line and then you feed the attachment screws through and tighten, that's all there is to it.

The one problem that I find with this, though, is that you can't remove the tombstone and trigger frame without complete removal of the Lapco magazine first. It's not much of an issue but it's worth noting.

Field Review
Not much to say here other than it's very tough. The magazine showed no sign of wear after a few games at various locations, and I was not babying it at all. It also doesn't add any noticeable weight to your A-5 which is a HUGE plus on it's part!
Conclusion: I recommend this magazine to anyone looking for the authentic M4 look, or just a really nice magazine. It's cheap compared to the alternatives, very lightweight, and very strong so you know it'll last.
