I've used 4 milsurp mags with no issues. N that's a great price.

I'm now buying Lancer L5-AWMs. Really like them, especially the steel feed lips. Very nice looking mag, too. I have quite a mix of GI, PMAGs, Troy Battlemags as well but lately I'm using the Lancers exclusively. Anybody else like them?

No complaints, they feed ammo fine but they can be hard to find, at least locally. I have three and no malfunctions yet. I found a three pack in my LGS clearance bin for $30, he decided to standardize on PMAG and Lancer. I like the steel feed lips of the Lancer so will buy them from now on. Both the Troy and Lancer are smaller than PMAGs (if you have small pouches).

I would by 2 or 3 anyway, thats a great price and you can always get your money back out of them.

I use count down mags in my AR that I got from AR15outfitters.com they work really well and count down each round from 30 so you know how many rounds you have left.
