Anybody have a recomendation for a source on new-in-wrapper 30 round magazines of the molly/teflon coated aluminum variety?

The magazines we are supposed to be using in country are the same magazines that we've had in the past that are all beat to hell. We've had so many problems with rifles that can be attributed to magazines that I'm looking to pickup my own. It's pretty un-nerving when you go to slap a magazine up the well of an M16 and you have to beat on it since the body of the mag or the feedlips have bulged out to prevent proper insertion. Most of them are worn to bare metal, have the old black followers, and have likely been improperly maintained.

I've see Bushmaster and DPMS have their 30 round mags for sale for $20 ea. Anybody have any comments on these? I'm looking at picking up 10.

The Bushmaster mags are Mil-Spec and I've heard they're good to go.

Ill second the SA80 british steel mags. brand spanking new, 18 bucks (or so)...reliable as can be...

and can be used as an impact weapon when empty.

I thought about the British steel mags, but I wanted something that was within spec. I found out that the DPMS and the Bushmaster mags were made by Labelle, and they were given good marks so I went ahead and ordered up 10 of them.

Forgot to order some green followers for converting 6 of the 7 issue mags I have that don't have them. Oh well.
