But these are darn Good mags!
+1 on that RC. They're excellent and I'd put them up against Colt or any other mfg.
However, re: their DPMS-style 308AR mags, they work fine but need slightly stronger springs
I really like the Brownells mags ... especially the straight 20-rounders, probably because I am an Old Guy and they both look & feel right to me.
I currently have 1 30rd 10pk and 2 20rd 10pks. Never had any issues with the Brownells AR-15 mags.
Pmag Gen2 no window 5 for $50
I boxed up 15 back for a rainy day. The others have worked well for me.
The 2nd Gen 30 round PMags are good as well, and some vendors have had them for $100 per 10.
My personal favorite AR mags are the Lancers.
Monday I had decided to get some more mags while I could. Put them in my cart at Brownell's along with a couple other things on sale, 10 mags were $99. By the time I was ready to check out, they had taken the sale price off IMO trying to maximize profit because of the Orlando shooting. Crappy I thought, but that's business.
I bought 9 from Bravo Company for $105 shipped. BCG shipping is based on $ not weight or size so buying a 10th would have made it a $15 mag instead of 12. The BCG 20's are
Just reading & participating in this thread had me, once again, on the verge of buying another 10 of the Brownells 20rounders ... although the last 10 that I bought (December) are still in their individual packaging sitting on a shelf.
The only way that I have found to reliably stop these impulses is to head to the basement and remind myself that I am awash in the magazines.
Ayup, I seem to have inherited the Hoarder Gene ... and the 10yr AWB made a big impression on my Psyche (as it did with many, I am sure).
Remember the hassle of trying to find "pre-bans" at a reasonable price?
Thank goodness my Hoarder Gene was, apparently, sated by the 100pk of LN HK G3 Alloy Magazines that I bought for $1ea/delivered a dozen, or so, years ago.
The Brownells aught to serve you well. Lots of great mags on the market, and they're certainly a good option.
I'm with you man. I've been buying mags off and on for the past several years. I'm good there, except for 20's. Guess I need a 10 pack of usgi 20 rounders!
The longrunnning AR15.com thread dealing with a commercial extreme range operator (full auto etc. )in Las Vegas also had him rating the Brownells as the most durable mags the last time that I checked. He also gave props to PMAG's and MagPul's excellent warranty but doing mag drops on concrete on an indoor range got to some of them eventually--all were replaced under warranty.
