    just picked up my very first AR15 , a Bushmaster M4 Patrolman model for $950. My only gun experience until now has been with various semi-auto pistols. So, my question about the AR is , if i want to pick up an extra 30-rd mag , can i safely and reliably use a polymer Magpul Pmag in my Bushy ? Or should i try to find another Bush mag instead... thanx in advance for any advice !

    Authentic Magpul P-Mags are fine...they should run without problems. Given the price and demand at this point just beware of counterfeit mags being sold on E-bay. Polymer products, especially Magpul seem to be especially susceptible to Chinese knock-offs.

    Troy Battlemags will work great also.

    The two mentioned above are good choices. Another great choice are the steel Cammenga mags.

    The PMags will be fine.

    Plain old USGI mags work, too. They're much like your BM mag unless BM has changed what they supply with the rifle.

    Pmag= best cheapest, most reliable mag on the planet but don't take my word for just ask SOCOM.

    Magpul Pmags, Troy Battlemags, and I also like the Lancer L5 mags. Avoid any other poly mags for the AR.
