Read the magfaq, at the top of the mag forum. [url]http://magfaq.tripod.com/mags2.htm#3i[/url] Long known issue with Orlites. If this guy wouldn't sell them to you, he probably did you a favor. I'd stick with USGI's.

For what it's worth. I have a Bushy 20" and Orlites work fine in it.. my only complaint would be they feel like they swell a little when fully loaded (30 rnds). They drop out fine empty or loaded. My local gunshop sells them for less than $10

Do you have contact info? They work great in my Fulton AR, but I don't find them under $15 in good condition.

Just picked up 2. One worked fine in my bushy, the other wouldent lock in. I just filed the ridge on the sides down a bit. No problems now.

Don't know why they're worried about Bushies. Rock River recievers have even less of a bevel on the bottom then Bushmaster. Had a bunch of Orlites on hand, for my Colt, when I built up both a RR and Bushie piece. About half the Orlites worked OK in the Bushie, but none of them would seat in the Rock River lower. Spent an evening thinning the overinsertion ridge on them and they now work fine[:D]
