They do with the factory mags.

Ok couple quick questions ...

Is the bolt suppose to lock back every time when the mag hits empty?

Yes, it is supposed to. If it's not, likely a mag issue.

Ok cool. Thx guys.

My Manticore mags don't allow the bolt to lock back either.

Just to keep the volley going, my bolt locks back when my M-PGS mags empty out. I hate when that happens (the empty mag that is!).

Are factory mags suppose to drop free?

And does the GHW Paddle Magazine Release change this element at all?

I have the GHW paddle and mine drop free... After modifying the mags.  If you haven't done so, check out the Youtube videos on modding the mags slightly with a file.

Cool. Thanks. I just checked it out.

These are my first factory 30 round mags.

Tested 4 factory 30 round mags, bolt locked back every time. Smooth, flawless operation every time.

I did have to do that little file job for them to get out a little easier but didn’t take much and now they are great.

Look up the mod for them and you get them there. You file down part of the back of the mag and it helps. Took me 2 mins

In which conditions do they not drop free?
When the bolt is in battery?
When the bolt is manually locked to the rear through the use of the charging handle?
When the bolt is held open by the slide release?

If the drops free in the first two, but not the third, that's because the recoil spring is pushing the bolt face against the slide release, which is allowed to shift forward, due to what I believe is a design flaw with the disassembly pin, enough to touch the back of the magazine and create enough friction to prevent the magazine from dropping free.

I have shot Speer 147 out of my EVO with factory mags and never had a feed issue. I purchased 5 Mantocore mags and went to the range last weekend and had nothing but failure to feed issues.  Of course I sold my factory FML.
