Talking Chip McCormick Mag Buys The Farm!!

Okay Chuck, we're gonna make the thread "WORTHY"!! It's gonna have pictures!!!rockon.gifrockon.gif Parental guidance is suggested. Some pictures contain images of a violent/destructive nature. Some viewers may find these images disturbing! Others, not so much!!!! noidea.gifnoidea.gif

This is what happens to a magazine that locks open with live rounds still in it and then fails to lock open when the mag is empty. No Reprieve!!!! No Pardon!!!! No Parole!!!! Just a quick and violent death by one man firing squad!!!! JUSTICE IS DONE!!! Let this serve as a warning to other magazines to keep yourselves squared away and functioning in an efficient, military-like manner!!!

Dead CMC Magazine.JPG That Left a Mark!!.JPG

OMG!!!!! fear.giffear.giffear.gif

The funeral will be this Saturday at noon. The magazine will be buried with full military honors!!! In lieu of flowers, send the Lineman ammo!!! I LIKE .45 ACP FMJ!!!

At last, the deed is done............. and a fitting punishment it was.

Keith, have you considered mounting it on a small wooden plaque and hanging it on a wall near your gun stuff? I think it would make a cool trophy.

Great idea, Chuck!! I hadn't even thought of mounting it. I guess I'm now in the market for a plaque to mount it on!! Hello Home Depot!!
Pictures upon completion of the "mount"!!!

If nothing else, that magazine will never make it into the mag well of my Pro Carry again!!! It is far too bent out of shape for that to ever happen again!!

Keith, here's a kit for mounting antlers I found that would work.

Death penalty? Should have given it life imprisonment with an airsoft gun.

Nice work Lineman! Personally I would've shot it at least 3x to make sure it was good & dead.

Looking forward to the 'Mount' photos!

I have a Chip mag. It's a ten shot. A great big extra long dose of stupid.

The only time my Kimber fails to feed right is when that stupid thing is in the gun.

I believe the problem is the design of the follower. It's just a piece of sheet metal bent in a "V" shape.

O.K., it's SORTA like a "V" shape. I don't like it regardless.

I carry Wilson Combat mags with the shaped plastic follower. They work every time.

I like the idea of putting a round on the offending mag just to show it who's boss, but I gotta admit I'm a bit shocked it didn't go all the way through.

I would have bet good money that a .45 hard ball round would leave a nice round hole you could look through.

Oh well.

I bet it went flying!

I have a few of those hanging on the wall in my man cave/computer room.

I think the mag mount will look good with the rest the stuff. I have a set of 8 point antlers that I need to mount also. So, I'll pick up a couple of mounting kits at Bass Pro Shop and skip the trip to Home Depot!.

Geeze, did ya at least try giving it mouth to mouth or hit it with the paddles? CLEAR! BZZZzzzzzZZZTTT!

All kidding aside, I have Wilson and Chips... Both very nice mags, but the Wilson has got to be the smoothest mag I have for loading and dispersement of rounds. It's like ice...I've never had a mag so easy to load without busting up my bad hands...
