Has anyone tried sticking one of the new green follower and spring sets in a U.S.A. mag to see if it will make them more reliable? I know the group feels U.S.A. mags are trash, but they are cheap and the rebuild kits are inexpensive also. So without flaming me, what do you think? Aw hell, you can flame if you like, I can take it… [}:D]

Reminds me of an old saying: "You Can't Polish A Turd" I should know, I own 6 USA 20rnd mags. BTW, Welcome! [:D]

Dunno, but I bought 2 & rightly caught hell from the board members! P'sOS. I'll never make that mistake again.

You hit it Forest! I tried the GFs in those mags, then noticed the lips are unevenly sized. I got them NIW back when I got my 1st AR and before I read the Mag FAQ. What a "deal" huh? 6 for $50, or $50 for a lesson learned.....

Well it looks like USGI mags is the only way I'm going to make you crazy people happy. So I guess that's what I will look for and buy. Thanks for all your input on the subject.

Some USA mags are good, some suck, depends on the weapon. If you got'em cheap, good luck.
