Default AR prefered mags

Is there a prefered magazine out there ? I ask because while trolling thru my local pawn shop they had 60-80 of what looked to be used mags until I went thru them ,
Picked up a new bushmaster with magpul guts, a clean colt mag withi magpul bottom pull and another one cant remember what brand but it looked unused .$8 each. Figured if one of them worked good I wasn't getting hurt $ wise

Decent shape mags the Colt is probably the roughest of them all but it said Colt so I had to have it
The Bushmaster Mag has a Pmag anti tilt follower the others are just standard issue

I wouldn't do a thing to the finish. Aluminum mags get a scuffed up look in time but as long as they're reliable otherwise the finish doesn't matter. In fact honest wear is a badge of honor.

And definitely don't mess with that Colt!

BCM sells black teflon coated mags if you want a dark finish. About $10...

yeah I got to thinking about that after you said it and IM going to leave all of them alone and use them as is . He told me when they start getting low in the glass case they put more out, I may go back this week and see if I can rummage thru the rest of them . If there are more Colts there I will snatch them up , he also had some other Colt AR mags in the case he was wanting $20 each , Not sure what was so special about them but they were really clean and nice , May have been a 10 or 15 rd mag if my mind serves me right
