I built a 9mm AR a few years ago, and sold it due to expensive colt mags (at the time $85). But I recently got the RRA 9mm, and I am so glad Promag made cheap mags. I have 1 real Colt mag and 5 of the Promags. They work just as good, seem easier to load (i think the feed lips have a bigger gap), and are freaking light. I'm so glad that somebody finally made something GOOD AND CHEAP.

Yeah, but not due to the high quality. They'll probably raise the price to cover all the low quality ones that get returned when they don't work.

For all the people on this board that talk down on Orilites, you would think the 9mm ProMags wouldn't even get a second glance. I find it odd that they get any good reviews at all.

As I hear mentioned around here a lot - buy cheap, buy often - buy quality, buy once.

You are lucky your promags work.

Mine will not run unmodified in a Hahn precision block. Which block are you using, RRA?

Too late. Bushmaster sells them for $28.

mine work great, in a RRA with RRA block, and a Colt with a colt block.
I have 5 and they work perfect. And I bought mine for $12.95.
I guess I have good luck though, I bought the Asian MP5 mags and they work great in my Mp5 clone, and everybody else had problems.

Bushmaster is a manufacturer, not a vendor so they list everything for MSRP. If you buy direct from Bushmaster or any manufacturer, you're probably paying too much.

Well you all have me beat my New Rock River will not work with any magazine Uzi, Colt or Pro Mag. Currently on the way to the factory for repair.

did your RRA come with a mag, mine didn't but i think the guy i got it from kept it.

Yes mine came with 1 UZI magazine. Ordered 3 extra would not work with any of them.

I am starting to think that they just don't run with the RRA for some reason. I have six that run great with my BM Carbon 9mm.

i got five of them the other day from Natchez for $10.99 and got to take them to the range.....observations were as follows......lots of sharp edges around lips...a little wet/dry sandpaper should cure that.....one was pretty tight in the mag shute and there again i think a little sanding should cure that........only one malfunction out of 100 rounds fired 20 rounds from each mag.....they were doing so good that i thought i'd try a bump fire and had a failure to feed on one round........i'm very pleased with these mags......D I C K

i found the uzi mag with my RRA in the bottom of the box, so i have 1 colt, 1 uzi, and 5 promags. All seem to function well, but the Uzi won't hold open.

I bought severl colt 32rd mags when I bought my bushmaster 9mm and took the factory promag out and sat it aside. Now after trying the promag All I can say is it has worked perfect for me everytime I used it and with all types of ammo from 115gr to 147gr FMJ and hollow points. I am surpised it works as well as it does I expected it to be a trash item to replace with real colt mags.
