    I'm planning on buying an ar15 when I get out of the marine corps in a month. The px here sells 30 round m16 Mag's for only 9.50 a piece. Should I buy some to take with me? Thanks for the advice.

    Don't DO IT! Get out the Corps, the grass ain't greener on this side of the fence...lol. Depends on where you going on the mags though. Don't want to get in trouble with the Communist state of NY or another similar state.

    Been there done that. Sorry to hear that but wish you the best.

    Good luck. They are being very picky with the drawdown and all, plus with prior service you come back in at the needs of the Corps. I had a married couple (both Sgts) come back in when I was a recruiter. He got out as a helo mech and went back in as a grunt. She got out as Aviation admin and went back in as a cook.

    Skip em and get pmags from magpul. I could have saved a lot. I bought a bunch of milsurp and between the few good ones and the ones i tossed i woulda been ahead if i just got pmags in the first place.

    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 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.
