Bought a couple of these to try out and thought I would give my review based on several outings at the range (no jungle warfare experience). The good: The snakeskin exterior gives a nice grip. They include a "pull" for the bottom of the magazine that can be inserted (Magpul charges $5 a pop for similar - actually it's nicer but $5?). The bad: The feed lips are not as stiff/strong as Magpul. The Magpuls are just a bit easier for me to load. Hope that helps. Basically, I will be sticking w/ the Magpuls - but the Troy are a close 2nd. Haven't had a single failure to feed from either set of mags. And the Troy seems just as well manufactured as the Magpul.
