    Buy some, test them and post a review.

    The Korean AR magazines are a copy of the H&K HK416 magazine and the Korean AR drums are a copy of the Beta C-Mag AR15/M16 drum.

    Korean magazines are hit & miss.
    The KCI branded magazines are better quality than the Khan branded magazines.
    Probably due to the fact that KCI makes magazines for use by ROK military & police forces and Khan makes magazines for civilian/export use.

    I have one. It has been reliable in feeding, but the follower is not long enough to activate the bolt hold-open on an AR15 - so the bolt closes when you're empty. Kind of a problem. Apparently that mag is intended for the Daewoo rifle issued to SK forces (big surprise) and that rifle has a longer hold-open lever.

    The Beta C-Mag hasn't really been a success in authentic form so I would not expect too much from a knockoff.
