Surely the ability to clip them together without needing a clamp is worth something? I mean, even if you have one for other guns, you can only clamp two together whereas you can clip together three or even more for some reason...if you're stationary, it's a good idea, as the mags can act as a sort of mono-pod to stabilize the gun, and to switch mags, just press the lever, lift, move over one, drop. Very fast when actually put into practise.
I totally get where you're coming from though. I've experienced all of the issues you brought up, but all are fixable and can be worked around.
