    Okay Gents:

    Can you guys give me some recommendations as to quality 10 ROUND AR15 mags, other than PMAGS? I have PMGAS and they're not working great with my platform. There's alot on the market, but I have no experience with this stuff. Are Lancers good?

    ^^^Wow! I can remember when plain Jane 30 round mags were going for $30-$40 during the Obama scare! That's a pretty good deal.

    You mentioned Lancer AWM mags. I have several of them and think they are the best of what I own. Never had a failure to feed with them, ever. Of course, my AR does fine with stainless GI mags also.

    I think Lancer makes the best AR mags available. Pmags would be a close second for me but I like both.

    PMags don't work on your platform???
    Given that I have the exact opposite experience, you might want to try ProMags :evil:

    Seriously, I am partial to the D&H teflon coated aluminum mags. I have several 10 rounders. I think they just make 10 and 30. For 20 and 30 I just use PMags.

    My most reliable magazines have proven to be Brownells with the orange, green, or gray followers. (have about 10)

    C-Products from about seven years ago with green or Magpul followers.( have about 15)

    And P-Mags.( have a few dozen, though those haven't shown me to be as durable, and before you shout back, just telling my experience.)


    If I could find any of those in 10 rd, short, barely stick out of magwell length, I'd buy em in a heartbeat.


    I have one nine round Colt marked & one ten round Bushmaster marked magazine that haven't ever given me any issue.

    Found some nine rounders that looked like my "Colt" one several years ago. Buying them proved to be a mistake.

    I have sold every AR mag that I own and upgraded to Lancers. The best kept secret for AR's. Looking forward to the AR-10 mags.

    How are those ten round Lancers working?
    I believe that's what OP was asking,
    and certainly what I'm asking.

    I have a bunch of the newest Lancer mags and I love them. I use the translucent grey ones so I can easily see exactly how many rounds I have loaded in the mag. It also doesn't hurt that I've seen some torture tests where these mags came out on top.
