I think people who buy a Scorpion and then complain about the lack of "drop-free" mags, as though it is some sort of fault or design-shortcoming of the gun, need to do a little homework and get a better understanding of the actual history of the Scorpion (and sub-guns in general, apparently). Expecting it to run just like an AR is like expecting a Glock to have the same MOA as a P226, and then complaining because the latter has a decocker. It's not a shortcoming of the Scorpion - it's how it was designed and intended to be used, and it's really no big deal to train to strip the mag and reload quickly at all; unless you are someone who mistakenly bought a Scorpion thinking it was going to be a direct crossover training tool for your AR, in which case, you probably should have done that homework before purchasing, rather than complaining about it after the fact.

Gotta agree here whether the mags drop free or not, folks should ALWAYS train for every functionality scenario with their weapons.  ;)

See my reply in his other thread.  I have shoot several different semi variants of SMG (Vz-61, Sterling and AR9).

Allowing your mag to hit the ground does not seem like a wise course of action when stowing them only take a second.
