RTI ARMS PROPHET BULLPUP MAGAZINE PERFORMANCE? IS THAT BUTT PAD COMFY? Function was faultless, and if you can drop pellets into a chamber, you can use this magazine, no problem at all. The ‘swap-around’ capability is a bit of simple genius, but I’d recommend you concentrate on which side you’re loading, because I messed up a couple of times and inadvertently prepared the mag’ for insertion on the left-hand side. Sad to say, but I’d probably place a discreet little sticker on the ‘facing me’ side of the Prophet’s magazine as a visual reminder. Not particularly, is my answer to that, but I can’t say I really noticed any lack of contouring or contact, apart from when I shot the rifle wearing a shirt, rather than a jacket. Our shoulders aren’t flat and straight, but a shooting jacket will perfectly accommodate the Prophet’s alloy butt plate. That said, I’d have something curved and comfy custom-made to improve contact.
