I was afraid of that.I actually bought one to try them out in my Charlie. The stock will not fold over them without severe dremeling.
It would be really nice if the Charlie stock worked with polymer. They are only getting more popular. I suppose they were still pretty uncommon when Kel-Tec dreamed up the Charlie underfolder, so polymers simply weren't considered.TBH, I was looking at building a spreadsheet that sorted brands of polymer mags by whether or not they fit or not, but that answer has universally been no
I've been shooting the AR platforms since 1974 when I joined in the big green machine. I have seen attempts at polymer AR mags: Israeli Orlite (actually pretty good), early Thermolds (CRAP, though I hear newer ones are better), Eagle clear plastic mags (PLASTIC GARBAGE), PMAGs Gen I (crack and split), and GenII PMAGs, (which are supposed to be pretty good). Then came Troy Battle mags, a answer to a question that was never asked... Now Hexmags. I handled some, and they would make OK range magazines, but I'm betting if you dropped a full one, it would spit rounds out. I didn't see or feel the engineering that a MAGPUL polymer has. They felt like plastic.
I would stick with current new Generation MAGPULs or Aluminum US GI with MAGPUL followers (that's what I run in my Keltec and my ARs).
