D&H. Just check them out for any issues then stash them away.

I have and use USGI mags, but IMHO, gen2 pmags. Tougher than USGI mags. Worth the $2 extra anyday.

I am a fan of the OK Industries mags.

I've got everything - D&H, OK, NHMTG, Pmags, etc. I'm not particularly brand loyal, and usually go with the cheapest. I have an unopened case of 100 Pmags in my safe because they were on sale for $799 a few years ago.

Based on the prices above, I'd go with D&H. Never had a problem with a single one, and at $2 cheaper, it's like buying 4 and getting the 5th one free.

I ran a group buy on a local gun board - bought 500 D&H mags. Never heard a single complaint.

Can't be named. Think you need to get 6 for that price. And they may be back orderer. Haven't looked lately.

Okays or Gen2 Pmags. Take your pick. I'm a fan of Pmags these days. I've had quite a few g.i. mags die untimely deaths from seemingly trivial injuries that would not have phased a Pmag....

Gotcha. Reason I asked is because I went straight there after seeing that post and saw they were priced at $11.99.
Link Posted: 5/27/2016 12:22:44 PM EDT
Those are all so affordable that I would buy 10 of each. Then repeat every month.

I wish. Bought an upper for a wedding gift for Sil and New BIL (young farmers)...and saving up to adopt a kiddo. Affordability doesn't exist right now!

From looking around $9-ish shipped seems to be the going rate for Gen 2 Pmags and they aren't getting much cheaper. Someone in another thread said Magpul charges retailers something like $8.92 for them....which I'm not sure is valid but if so might explain why finding them in the $8 range isn't happening any more in any quantity.

I've never had any issues with USGI/D&H or Pmags but haven't tried the Okays.

$15.30 a mag after sale...I'm sure they're nice mags but I will still take a dang near 2 for 1 price point on known quality mags.

I've been stacking Okay mags. I have a bunch of pmags but I swear the (very) few times I've ever had some type of FTF its always been with the plastic mags. Good mil spec mags have never done me wrong.

While I really like their mag best, I can get Lancer or MagPuls much cheaper even with the 15% discount

Not to mention the screaming deals on GI mags. They kinda price themselves out of the market...it's a magazine
Link Posted: 6/6/2016 11:17:00 AM EDT
I have about 80 Pmags and around 20 D&H mags and a few other brands. For the average shooter, Pmag is the best of both worlds-price and function. I would like to try ETS mags as they have see through mags which are kind of neat.

While I can't speak for Lancer as a company, I have read a few complaints that Magpul makes the customer pay shipping even at times when it's their fault.

Now I love Magpul's product but, if true....again...IF TRUE...., that's just horrible customer service IMO. Sending a shipping label is day one stuff anymore.

I would go with the Magpuls I found that metal mag feedlips tend to scratch the brass when feeding. STAY AWAY FROM THE D&H. I bought about 20 of those from PSA a few years ago and they are the worst magazines I ever tried. After promag of course. They didn't drop free when loaded and put serious scratches on my brass. They did however function flawlessly if I remember correctly.

I must be lucky every D&H I've gotten from them perform great. I prefer them, always dropped free loaded or unloaded.

That's weird because I've never had any issues with any of my D&H mags over the years. They've always dropped free (unlike all my Pmags) from all of my lowers as well.

Okay!

Why, because EVERY magazine they manufacture is tested on an insertion gauge to make sure it's correct.

They are the most trouble free magazine available.
