Nov 21, 2013: ZMAGs: The Final Cut

We still have several beta testers who haven’t had a chance to test the new ZMAGs. But their input is due any day. Based on what we’ve heard back from the testers who have already completed testing, the ZMAG are performing well—with a 99.8% feeding success rate so far. Obviously, we’d like to get that number as close to 100% as possible. So, the production units are going to feature a polymer follower. I believe this will help eliminate any follower binding that may be contributing to the small number of misfeeds.

A lot of wheels are in motion to bring these magazines into production before the year is out. But it will be close. That’s why I’m forecasting a January shipping date.
