These have worked flawlessly for me to date. I'd like to compare cost of these compared to the new USGI's.

Thank's, SB

A local Indoor range has a few of these but I haven't priced them because they are so much heavier than the USGI mags. Doesn't the extra weight bother you?

Weight: British steel 30 rnd Mag: 8.0 oz. USGI Alum 30 rnd mag : 4.0 oz. 30 rnds 55grJHP XM193's : 12.04 Steel loaded = 20.4 oz's Alum Loaded = 16.4 oz's Yes there is a difference in weight by approxamatly 20 %. If I had to carry 4, 5 or 6 loaded mags around all day I'd say YES. But these steel mags are very nice for my purpose... Give them a try brother, pick them up side by side loaded and you can hardly tell the difference. [:)>]

I think with a full 7 mag loadout you may be adding 2 lbs to your load by using English mags Eat your Wheaties son, eat your Wheaties. [:)]

I think I will try these, guys at the gun range say they are practically indestructible. They use these steel mags for the their rental AR's which get a LOT of abuse. I'm noy much for Wheaties, prefer Wheat Chex. lol
