Default Best source for AR15 mags.

Been using Pmags for a while now and they are great, but am thinking about and old school KISS A2 build and want some opinions on GI style metal mags. I'd like them to function flawlessly and have anti tilt followers. Who makes good ones for even better prices?

Thx for you time! And Happy Holidaze!

I just picked up a 4 Thermold 30rd mags at Sportsman's warehouse for $6.99 each. Not top of the line mags but I put 300 rounds through them this weekend without any issues. Great to have around loaded for when the SHTF.

I just got two 20 round "Colt" mags from a gun broker add. The add said they were Colt mags but when I got them it says NHMTG HARTFORD, CT on the bottom plate. I don't know if they are really Colt mags but they are new and look good. I paid $25 each for them but the shipping was $10.00!!!!!! Hope they work good.

If I was gonna use GI mags, I would get the Cammenga Easy Mags. They look like standard GI mags, but they slide apart so they are much easier to load. You should check them out.

My personal favorite mags are the Lancer A5 Advanced Warfighter. They're polymer mags, anti-tilt follower, steel feed lips, and they're still lighter than PMags. Plus I really like their texture.

Bravo Company has some with Magpul followers. The link is for the black ones, they have fde and gray also. I have a couple they're BCM stamped on the bottom plate. I've never had any issues with them.

I had an MRE box full of 30 rounders I "found" while at Joint Readiness Training. They were mostly garbage though. DSGArms has some nice GI mags w/ Magpul anti tilt followers that have worked nice for me.
