Stay far away from the steel magazines... at best, they're junk. Pick up some USGI magazines and save yourself the pain! The steel mags are cheap for a good reason... You can find USGI's here on the Equipment Exchange for great prices... Welcome to the world of the boards and the Black Rifle... edited 'cause I still can't speel...

You're lucky that they are tight. I made the mistake a few years ago of buying an el cheapo mag, and the f'ing thing wouldn't even lock into the rifle. Go USGI, the only ones that are worth it.

Depending on your rifle, I could also recommend the SA80 british mags or the american thermolds. All of these seem to be rock solid reliable in a rock river, at least.
