   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
