I was looking at some Western mags online, and was wondering if they're any good? The price seems to good for them to be any good. I need some more mags for my AR and my mini 14. Anyone have any experience with them?

thier garbage just like the other after-market crap out there(usa brand / triple k ect..) I was giving 4 of these for my Sar8. results 2 fit fine / 2 had to be grinded down to lock in / and all 4 are cheap steel which marked up my reciever. STAY AWAY!

I have 2 40s that suck. you have to pull the back pin and break open the upper push the mag lock button and a friend has to pull. crap Ive has good luck with the usa 30s and 40s the only problem Ive had with them is loose fit on the bottom plate but if you take 30 seconds and bend the tabs its fixed

I had a few WMP M14 mags and a few Beretta mags from them and all worked fine.

I'll probably stear clear of the western ar mags, but maybe I'll try a couple for my mini 14. Thanks guys!

Stick with GI. There is NO SUCH THING as a decent aftermarket mag. Well, Thermolds are OK and Orlites do work, but..... I like GI. Just bought two NIW 7-packs of 1970 Adventureline 20 rounders for $150/pk. They are out there if you look.

POS for AR-15, there other mags work ok depending on the weapon.
