    Anybody know if the Tapco M16 magazines are any good or if they're POS?

    I do not know about Tapco, never dealt with them, but the last AR magazines I purchased were from Bravo Company, and they were high quality.

    Price was nice too.

    Brownells has come out with their own new AR magazine in 20- and 30-round flavors. They back them 1000%. I like to buy GI contract mags and put Magpul followers in them. I have no use for mags that do not have a "closed" rear face around the shells. The aluminum mags have this closed face; most of the steel aftermarket ones do not. They tend to jam to the point that you'd want to kick your cat when you get home.

    If they are the D&H brand that they were selling they are good to go.

    The Brownells offerings are in the latest catalog; they were not in the previous one, so they may not be the D&H brand.

    I'm on the Tapco mailing list. They recently sent me a ad for five D&H mags for $50. That's a good price for good mags.

    The other place to go is www.44mag.com. They have the best prices I've seen on the web.

    I have some 20 and 30 round Brownell's mags, along with the SA80 steel and a bunch of USGI surplus 30 rounders. The Brownell's are great. Never any problems with any of them. I have never had a jamming problem with any of my rifles/magazine combinations.
