Here's a better look at the steel locking tab.



This gives you a better look at the texture of the magazine. Its aggressive enough without going overboard. When my hands get wet or sweaty, I sometimes have a problem with PMags slipping. It's not an issue with these mags.



A pic of the bottom. You can see that they have put in a drainage hole for those of you in wet environments. Just so everyone knows, they recommend putting a piece of electrical tape on the inside covering the hole if you live in a sandy environment. I live in Florida, parts of which are pretty sandy, and have had no issues. If you live in the desert, that might be a different story.



Overall, I have been very pleased with the one that I bought, and it has become my mag of choice. I will be selling the PMags and the Troy BattleMag that I bought, and buying another 19 or so of the L5 AWMs. At this point, they don't have any with windows, but they have models that are translucent. I believe they can be had in brown or smoke, but they are a little more costly. Somewhere around $28 ish IIRC.

I got mine from Midway USA for $15.25 each. Not quite as cheap as some other options, but worth the extra cost in my opinion. Here's the link:

If you decide to try some out, and I really encourage everyone to, make sure you buy the Lancer L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazine, and not the standard L5. The AWM is the one with the steel feed lips.

They look pretty similar to the pmag on the outside
