Certainly, but he had the sense to buy an AK-patterned rifle, less mag picky.

Because when you drop that metal mag and it lands lips down my pmag will be fine and your metal mag will be toast. Plus my pmags come with covers that snap into place to keep pogie bait crumbs out of them as well as dirt and sand.

Cane's magazine is a Tripp Research 52-round behemoth, I assume. Not my $120 cup'o'tea, but I will be buying their 1911 mags.

Back to the issue at hand:

C-Products are great, which I think are steel. I'd buy steel first, polymer second and aluminum last.

So funny, I would assume that a PMag with a window would be the coolest thing for her, especially in dark earth or something (someday they'll come out with a Ruger Raspberry color...then Cane will be all over it).

Pmags are alright, but in my opinion, the Lancer5 mags beats it hands down on functionality, design, and atheistic. C product mags are what I use also; I have the steel black with the orange anti-tilt follower.
