Do most of you have 30 rds. mags ? What about 20 rds ? How hard is it to find 20 rds mags ?

eaglefirearms.net has USGI 20 rounders for $13.50 each if you buy them in a quantity of 10 or more.

I picked up 10 from DSGarms. They were on sale at around $11.50. I ran them a coupla weeks ago. They worked perfectly. It seems to me that the mag box length is just a touch shorter than my other USGI mags. Less wiggle room. But the SA and Wolf all went in and ran through the 16. After about 900 rounds I started to get first round FTFeeds, but all fed on the second CH drop. I sprayed some CLP on things and the problem disappeared. Ran about 1300 rds through 2 uppers that day.

I like the older USGI 20's for their reliability, but I use the NHMTG 20's with USGI alloy followers as my shooters.

I really like the NHMTG mags because they're an exact copy of the old 20's except for finish.

I had some bad luck with the curved 20's. Plus their longer. I prefer the older style 20 round mags.

I was curious, because I found a place in Alabama that has quit a few of the old 20 rds mags. I've already picked up about 10 of them. I'm thinking about getting the rest.

i love the straight usgi mags with the alloy followers

20rd magazines were meant to be straight, not gay (I mean "curved")...

Who made the mags? I found a similar 'box' of 20's at a gun shop during the ban. They were used Colts for $8 each. I got 13 of them but should have bought the whole box. I refinished them and got a new spring for each. They were in very good condition. I'd get them unless they're beat up.
