Some earlier Orlites don't fit so well in Bushys, do a search in the Mags forum for specifics. I bought several for range work, they fit my Bushy fine with no grinding necessary. They DO bulge when loaded, and the fit in the mag well is different when loaded, I suspect that this flexing is not adding to their longevity. The feed lips DO crack at the back and the front, but mine have not as yet. Lastly, I don't think the Iz's still use them, I believe they switched to USGI.

I have loaded-fired each one probably 10-20 times. Most of the time they sit empty in the safe. I use them exclusivley for range/class work, I put away my new USGIs after function checking them all. No problems whatsoever.

Actually they are no longer issued in the IDF. Answers why there are so many surplus ones around. The IDF went back to the basic aluminum 30 rounders. They are more thermally stable than thermolds but the nylon reinforced plastic will decompose after hard use, especially around the feedlips. If you drop one of these damaged ne, they will spew out the rounds. Goto the mag section and I think its Troy who is the mag expert.
