For me it would be FN and Adventure Line. They seem to drop-free a little better in my gun and I know it's probably my imagination but it doesnt seem to be as easy to wear off the finish when you are giving them a beating for whatever reason. How about you[?]

USGI [:D]

USGI. Of those I like the O-Kays. Why? I don't know, maybe because they were the first ones I got. Stepped-init

USGI. But I used to like Orlite's because they didn't scratch the magwell. BTW- I drilled the holes out of one of my Orlite's and it look's cool. Cool because you can see any remaining rounds that reside. I'll post a pic later when I get back. Later...

Adventureline Parsons Okay Ind. But the absolute best are the Labelle Teflons though technically they're not USGI.

Geez; I guess I'm odd man out. I use Colt 20's excusively. They seem to drop free from every AR throught my hands. They also have fewer feed problems than most thirties. I also like being able to real close to ground, becoming one with the dirt. Its kinda hard to shoot with the rifle sideways.

Ones that work well and have good lips! (Just like a good woman [:D]) All mine work the same, AdventureLine, Okay, Center, Parsons, Sanchez, Colt, and my US Thermolds.

Personally, I like the ones that are discussed in this forum: [url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/forum.html?id=17[/url] Just twisting your tail M4. I like the Okay and Sanchez brand.

"Colts" seem to be more consistent internal F/R dimensionally. If I'm loading 77 gr. SMK's mag length I can get a couple thousandths more OAL and not bind. Other than that no difference with USGI.

I would have to say Sanchez because that is what I have most of. CD.

Colt 20s- like the logo on the floor plate. OKay 30s- same reason. My favorites are Labelle teflon 30s. Recently retired all my "range mags" and broke out the new ones, including the teflons. Life is short. Better that I enjoy the nice ones than somebody else.

Okays and Colts. Why? Firstly, because they are the same thing(Colts are made by Okay for Colt). Secondly, so I have Colts to match my rifle and Okays to shoot at the range. I'm an "All Colt" nut but, let's face it, Colt stamped mags are expensive.

Thats not bad at all! What kind of quality expeirence do you have with Orlites?
Link Posted: 6/19/2002 7:32:24 PM EDT
I got a couple of Orlites a month ago and they work great but don't know how well they age...
