Default Anyone have experience with Brownells 20 & 30 round mags?

I just ordered 1 of each to test, do any of you have much experience with them?

Pros & Cons please.

I put this in the AR-15 Discussion thread and forgot to stipulate AR-15 mags.

About as good as it gets in a affordable metal magazine. I like the ones with the chrome/silicon springs,
but they are ALL good. Only problem I've ever had (and I have lots of these mags) is with the 30 rd version.
They have a finish that is a little rough, and a fully loaded 30 rd MAY drag the top round on the feed
lips and not feed right the first few times. Polish the inside of the lips a touch with a dremel, or just
use them a few times and they will smooth out.

I have used them before and never had any problems with them. Pretty durable. They can take some abuse.

I've got some of the twenty rounders. Decent mag and a fair price. I dressed mine up with ranger floor plates and better followers. Probably paint them in the near future when I finish the scope and mounts to match the rest of the varmit rifle(winter digital).
