I did a search and didnt find any posts about them, so I thought I would start one. The Gen 1 Discussion. http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f95/tapco-mags-mini-14-a-26625/ After seeing the Nutnfancy review I picked up one. [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znJCdgFfhbk"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znJCdgFfhbk[/ame] I have a newer tapered barrel Mini, and boy is that thing tight. I Inserted it about 10 times, nothing like steel on polymer to straighten things out. It is still tight but not as bad. I will take it to the range and give her a shot saturday and post my full opinion. I noticed in the Gen 1 discussion the magazines had a problem with the heat. I just wanted to see if any one is using the Tapco magazines and what they thought about them.
