M1 Carbine mag?

What is the best source for 30rd magazines for the new AO Carbine? Thanks in advance, J2.

KCI makes 30rd mags, but I've noticed they take a bit of persuasion to fit all the way in to the magwell, at least on my Plainfield...

The Koreans are supposed to be pretty good right now. I don't know if it matters which vendor (re any specific make). I assume most--if not all--o the new or recent prodution mags not claimed to be GIs are Koreans these days. Try or
Edit: I thought another web address fixed but apparently not.

One thing to know,if you are going to use 30 rd magazines,it is best to have an M-2 magazine catch.The M-1 catch only engages the 2 lugs on the back face of the mag.I have seen those lugs fail with an M-1 catch,ruining the mag.The M-2 catch has a tab on the starboard side that engages a third lug on the side of the magazine..

It will help safeguard your 30 rd mag investment

I have had no problems with the mags made by Fulton Armory.
