    I had a terrible experience with the stainless mags. The bodies were so crooked they wouldn't even hold rounds. Many people on here claim to be satisfied with them, but about an equal number don't like them. The aluminum one I saw at the last gun show I was at didn't look much better than the SS ones I received.

    I have c products mags. They are actually Ar Stoners. Midway just bought a bunch and renamed them.

    Work great for range duty. I keep the original D&M mags in the bags that came with the rifle.

    Mine have been fine at the range. Can't speak for other types of conditions out there in the world.

    A couple years ago, they were the AR-mag DeJour. Somehow, they're now getting a lot of grief. I have several, and they've all look good and run just fine.

    I bought fifty "AR Stoner" mags (made by c-products with Magpul followers) and fifty C-Products mags sold by AIM Surplus (black teflon with orange C-products followers). I've sold most of the AR Stoner mags to friends and coworkers, and some of the C-Products ones.

    I've heard and observed zero complaints or malfunctions. They seem to work just fine. I will say that the black-teflon ones with the orange followers seem to be much more "roughly" done. The welds are more visible and less even, and the edges are sharper. If I had to predict which one would fail first, it would be them, but I have observed zero faults with either. It is also worth noting that I ordered the AIM Surplus ones at the height of the Insanity (AIM had a smoking great price, even then), so I have no doubt that C-Products was working 'round the clock and turning them out as fast as possible.

    To the naked eye, everything seems to be in spec on the crucial dimensions. The feedlips seem identical from mag to mag and across types.

    I have 20+ of the stainless 30 rounds mags. Every one I have has functioned normally during rifle matches and for the 4 day class I took.

    I bought two 20 round SS mags. One was fine, the other wouldn't hold the first/last round. contacted C products for an RMA on the defective mag and received a prompt response. I sent the mag back and since that time they have completely ignored multiple follow-up emails from me. As the saying goes, you pay your money and you take your chances. I will never buy another again, and if this 'review' costs them $20 in sales, I'm happy now. I bought several pmag magazines and am happy with my new purchases. lesson learned. I wish all my lessons were this cheap.

    Odd, in that I have both variants and my black ones with the orange followers not only work well but seem better made than my other C Products mags. :confused: I will concede that the "edges" seem somewhat sharper but the welds are not at all prominent.

    You might want to fish them back out. If you return them, they'll exchange them for ones that work.
    I dunno. Mine seem rougher in most dimensions. That said, they work fine.

    They are okay, about on par/slightly worse than USGI.

    Took a friend to the range with his and my AR's. His was FTF city with all four of his C-Products magazines but worked fine with my Okay, Sanchez, Brownells, and HK magazines (of course). Two of his magazines functioned fine in my Bushmaster, two had the same double-feed issues. Didn't do a comprehensive review, only stated that saving $2 a magazine when you spend as much to fill it as it costs is penny-wise, pound foolish. Always buy known good magazines. 100% USGI or HK mags for me. Not looking back.

    haven't had one hiccup from any of my stoner mags. Only complaint is that they are aluminum. Wish they were steel or a hardier material. Other than they work just fine.

    I live pretty close to both the current and former CPRODUCTS factories. I have bought mags in person from their office, however, I'm not sure if they are currentely offering walk-in sales. They customer service was excellent. Granted, I bought them well before the current panic, but the masgs that I bought seemed better made than any of the used USGI mags that I own. I would not hesitate to buy CPORDUCTS mags in the future.
