I have seen alot of these mags being sold lately. Has anyone used them at the range yet? What are the opinions on them? Especially when used with Busmasters?

The SA80 English mags work flawlessly in my Bushmaster M4gery. I bought one along with 3 Thermolds, but I just prefer the Thermolds more than the English steel mags. I think a black rifle deserves a black magazine. The SA80 English mags are slightly cheaper in price than USGI's or Thermolds. Use them without worry.

I have 22 they work flawless they are the gray unmarked ones,I replaced the followers to green and just this past wedensday shot off in my preban bushmaster the 20 mags I had loaded to capacity the last 4 months,all functioned fine and the follower is smoother in the mags since ive given them a full capacity run through,They work great.

They work great in my Bushmaster AR-15. They do not lock into my Bushmaster M17s. I know that they can be made to work in the rifle, but I prefer to just use other magazines in that one.

Feed and function perfectly in my RRA AR15. Had to file just a little on one for more positive lockup (2sec job) but that a minor quibble. Bought 3 at $15 inc shipping. well worth the price and extra weight of USGI. Mine came with black/blue anti-tilt followers and have not changed them. Never need to.

They're great. Only problem is that steel rusts and aluminum doesn't. I like them better, especially the black teflon (think that's what it is) ones. I'm not a huge fan of the gray ones. They are a great solution if you want sturdier mags. Not a great solution if you plan on getting them wet. Edited to add: I haven't tried taking apart my tefloned steel mag, but I can't for the life of me get apart the gray ones.
