I have recently taken to the PMAGs and other than wishing they had a more aggressive waffle pattern, I have no other serious complaints about them.

I was wondering two things about them. Mainly, how well they hold-up over time and what/where is the best price for them? (FWIW I don't care if they have the little window.)

PMAG's hold up great.

$14.99 is an every-day-of-the-week kind of price.
$11.99 is a great sale price.

Finding them between $10-$12 will be as good as you might expect. At least, I've never found them cheaper than that, and I buy them when I find them in that range.

FWIW, you can do some stippling on them to give them one seriously aggressive texture.

CoRoMo, do you stipple with heat (soldering iron/woodburner) or a drill?

Another solution is adding grip tape. I cut out the tape to fit inside the lower recesses. This adds a good bit of grip.

Soldering iron: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUY0n3asxww A Pmag is a cheap way to practice too, rather than practicing on the old USP 45.

The least expensive online price I've found for Pmags was ~$14 shipped.

Currently $11.99 ($13.99 for the widowed versions) at Surplus ammo.

I've got more than 50 of them and never had even a hiccup that I could attribute to the mag.

I use a mix of PMAGs, Lancer AWMs, and Troy Battlemags. All hold up very well.
