Are these any good, or POS's?

The steel ones are usually USA brand mags. I dont own any but I guess they work as range mags.

The last magazines I brought from them were indeed, 'CHEAPER THAN DIRT'! Don't waste your money. Get the USGI magazines, and don't look back!

Those magazines have a useful purpose: to be the preban M-14 mag converted into an AR-10 magazine using the Armalite Conversion Kit! ________________________________________________ [img]http://www.pre-ban.com/forums/ranks/usmc-gsgt.gif[/img][img]http://www.pre-ban.com/forums/images/avatars/471897163ec56dcf95bbe.jpg[/img]

Lately I have found that Cheaper than dirt is no longer Cheap at all. I went into the store in Ft. worth and spied USED Ak mags for $29.99. These were hammered pieces of shit too. Looked like someone took a ball peen hammer to them. Check www.cdnninvestments.com or buy from the equipment exchange. All the Ar mags I have seen from CTD were USA brand trash. AS stated earlier they do make fine targets. For AR, buy USGI only and you wont have any complaints.

I've ordered their used ak mags online for 10 bucks each and they are worn but work ok. Their AR steel mags are pure crapola. I agree with you about USGI but jeeez they cost. At this rate It'll take me years to buy a thousand of them!!!!!

I used to order all kinds of stuff includding ammo from Cheaperthandirt.com, Its seems thier shipping cost have went up and the $3 ammo fee for shipping really turned me off. I only order from the sportsmanguide. Oh thier AR mags are made by Western Metal ind. They are pretty crappy. I was out shooting and this guy had a mini-30 and he said that he got the 20 round mags from cheaper than dirt and they work fine after a little filing. But he said he wish he could buy more.
