Hey larry - I have an order w/ you for both your 30 rounder in the stainless and some 20 rounders in the standard finish. I am going to see the quality first hand, then buy in bulk.

My questons is on the new curved 20's - they look like they use the same dies as the 30's but are cut shorter. I have a Bushmaster 30 rounder with the grey teflon - to me this is the best mag for the money - the welds on the back splin are good - and where they need to be. They are no more than a quarter inch from the ends (top and bottom)

On my D & H 20 rounders - made by as I understand it. The welds are not as close to the ends as they are on 30 rounders, and I would say that the bottom weld is more like a inch away from the end.

What is your take, do you do any thing different on your 20 rounders.

I am looking foward to your reply, and to getting your mags.

Thanks,

Badredfish

My CP 20's have a weld just about the floor plate on the front and rear of the mag. I've had no problems with these and have more some on the way now...

Our 20 round magazines are run on a separate tool, as a matter of fact we just built a new die with no secondary operations. It will be running the end of next week.
We have a separate fixture to weld the 20's so that the welds are uniform. I don't know the setup at D&H.
Thanks for the order. Let me know what you think. Call if you want to 866 274-0247.

Hey Larry, sounds like that you just might be building the best 20 rounder on the market then, Will my order that I placed w/ you last week be of the same quality as your new ones?

Thanks,

Why not a straight 20 rd mag? I have to admit I love my colt straight 20's at the range.

Any chance of some of them?

I am very partial to the old 20 rounders. I have a stash of them, and buy more every chance that I get (I currently have five of them on the way).

To shoot XTC - you only need three - one for the two rounds, one for the eight rounds, and one for the single shoot follower.

I love being able to buy new mags for less than 10 bucks these days. back durning the ban I was buying NIW 30's for 25 bucks each.

I will put on the EE my preban mags for the guys in NY - would do just the 30's and hang on to my O'Kay - they are my fav brand.

I am lookinng forward to seeing what the Cproducts mags look like and how they preform.

Later,

Badredfish

and since we are talking fishing - my first love is chaseing Kingfish - God I love it - esp fishing in the Greater Jacksonville King Tourment (it has a 1000 boats in it).

I believe the reason most people want the curved as opposed to the straight is because the curved take the same follower regardless of being 20rnd or 30rnd and with the magpul followers out now(which are very nice, but I never had problems with the old usgi black ones either)...the majority rules, and you either pay 12 bucks for a curved one or something like 35.00 for an old colt straight guy. Hope this helps.
