I tried one. It worked for the 20 or so rounds I put through it. The body is so thin it flexes when I squeeze it...just doesn't appear that robust so for me, there are better options such as GI mags or PMAGs if plastic is what you want.

In South Texas AR Mags are rather high priced right now. Even used Military TYPE are over $12 each. I'm wanting a couple of more Mags and was looking at these.

I never used them but when I checked them out at a shop they just felt and looked a little too 'cheap' to me.

I have not seen or used the 20s, but I have a couple of 30s that I really like. They fit better than the GI or PMAGs and are quieter as a result. They have worked fine for me. Quite honestly, I didn't even know they were being made anymore.

Thermolds work as good or better than any other AR mags.

This is what I get and where I get them from.

Excellent quality magazines and good service from the owner.

NHMTG is the same company that makes OKAY magazines for the military and makes the magazines that have Colt floor plates. (They all have the same CAGE code).

I would get all I could afford and box them up for a rainy day. They won't wear out just sitting in a box but they do wear out using them so it is a good idea to have extras for the future.

Even if there never is another magazine ban. (However in that situation you will be paying that or more for half worn out magazines. Been there/done that, didn't get a T-shirt though. :rolleyes:)
