Default Synthetic Magazines

Hey guys,

Over the past week or so someone posted a web site that had really good prices on synthetic magazines for the AR. I have two dozen metal mags right now and would like some synthetic to try out but don't want to spend a great amount for something I may not like. Anyone remember the web site? I believe they were $8.50 each.

Thanks

The P-Mag is the only non-metal, non-drum/snail feed magazine I would ever consider trusting.

I can't say anything for the un-reliability of other polymer mags, but P-Mags are the only thing I use in mine. I'm waiting for Magpul to come out with some for the AR-10 and I'll pick those up as well.

Thanks guys, I've never used anything but metal mags in all my years. I still have a distrust of plastic but everyone seems to be impressed with them so thought I would give them a try. Thanks Robo I'll try the Pmag.

Try a Lancer L-5. I too like my P mags, but the Lancer isn't junk.

Polymer is the metal of the future! Just admit it!

Also, here's another vote for P-mags.

Was also thinking of a p-mag... Anyone know how they do in freezing conditions ? Do they get brittle ?
