    I've never really had much issues with Pmags, but I do have plenty of aluminum mags.

    Really?
    How much first hand experience do you have with Pmags?

    Hexmag have had documented issues since they were released.

    I have been swayed by your articulate argument.

    Plastic melts. There is my argument.

    So does plastic melt before aluminum/steel?

    I do not think so.

    The gun is not designed or capable of melting the magazine by operation. It can melt the front grip. The only way to melt the magazine is thru fire and the operator will be long dead and cooked from heat before the plastic mag or furniture melts. Not to mention the plastic melts close to the auto detention temperature of the cartridges so even aluminum and steel mags won’t exist if heated to those temperatures.

    I am also talking about general fires. not just heat from firing.

    My mags are not in safe but my guns are. Just saying that my aluminum mags will without hold more heat than plastic mags

    Are you trying to say that aluminum or steel magazines will not transfer heat during a house fire for example? You might just want to check on the properties of those metals. There's a good reason things like heat sinks, radiators and engine blocks are made from them.
