I believe they were $8.50 each.

Thanks
Not so huh?

Speaking of magazines, I am seriously thinking about investing in one of these Benchloaders.

You never know....some day you may have to keep some damn Zombies at bay, and you need loaded mags now!

Already have the UpLula 9mm to .45 cal universal pistol magazine loader and it works flawlessly and very quickly.

Thanks guys for the responses, so far I ordered a P-mag and a Lancer 5, I'm looking at the other poly-mags and think I will order one of each (as many as I can afford) and see which one I like best. It will take a few weeks to get them in but after the holidays I'll post a report.

The best synthetic magazines for the AR I have found so far are the ones for the SIG 556 rifle, they are not cheap, come in a box, two mags and a connector and the cost is somewhere in the range of $40 to $42 for a pair. They are made for the SIG rifle, but fit any AR.

They work just fine in the snow and ice over here. No problems at all.

Yes, he is that old. He is so old that he could be in a museum, no wait, he is in a museum.

Ok, I stand corrected, he was in a museum (Lackland Security Forces Museum) but they took the picture down.

I picked up 2 30 round Tapco polymer mags. They work great. $14.00 each
