You can get aluminum USGI for that. Why settle for less?

I only have 3 Thermold mags out of my 15+ total mags. I really like them and have never had any problems whatsoever. I don't want to compare them to USGIs. I think both are great and it's just a personal preference if you ask me.

if you do get them make sure they are made in the USA. the canadian versions are made of fifferant polymer and have issues with high temperatures. i have 5 usa models and allk work wonderfully. not to mention they look damn good in the rifle also!

The original Thermold mags were made in Wilson, NC.

They were contracted to the Canadian military. They worked well until they got dirt and sand in them during extreme conditions. The plastic got scarred and caused problems. Canada went back to metal mags.

For the range they are great. For combat in especially in the middle east get USGI.

$20 each? I paid less than $15 for one and $12 for five at a gun show, all 22H moldings. At the last show they were out of 22Hs, so I only bought two non-22Hs. The front of the mag needed a few swipes of a file to keep the nose of the round from occasionally catching. I've never had any problems with Thermolds, even inserting with a closed bolt.

Two nice things about Thermolds are: not hot to the touch when you're out shooting all day in the sun and they don't scratch up the mag well if you like keeping your AR looking new. Personally I like the Thermolds and rarely use my USGI mags.

The Thermolds already have the new "anti-tilt" followers built into them. The over-insertion rib is also a nice touch.
