I'm looking for some 20rd'rs, straight/Mil Spec. Came accross some NHMTG's
So, what is the consensus on these mags? I'm assuming since they are the vendor to Colt, they should be good. But before I drop some cash I just want to make sure.

The ones I bought were "brand new" date stamped 11/03. I used the wooden ruler and got the black follower to jam up quite easily. There was enough spring fatique to not hold up the bolt catch after the last round.

All in all, I spent way too much for these mags.

I bought 5 from CMMG.. I numbered them and brought them out to the range to function test them. My standard procedure to test mags is to try them in all my lowers with the uppers that are normally attached (6 uppers, 4 lowers), with at least 5 loadings in each gun (100 rounds per mag, per gun in the case of 20 rounders). I only brought 1 gun to the range yesterday (I was alone) so it got 500 rounds by itself. All the magazines functioned fine, no jams, bolt locked back on empty mag 100%. I still will test them in my other guns as time allows....
