Anybody had any experiences with the Bushmaster 40 round mags? I just ordered one and was curious to see if anybody had any good or bad tales to tell.

Most people trashed the shit out of 40 rounders in my post reading experience. If I recall correctly the brunt of the blame in the posts rested squarely on the poor quality USAs & other cheapos, but I suspect that there is more to it than that. Why else would they be so affordable?

Too late; he already bought one. Oh well, you will now have some personal experience with crappy mags.

Send it back. My Dad bought two and we just sent them back in exchange for LULA's.

bushmasters 40 rounders are good. They are a little high price at $25.00 each, but at least you will get your mags if you order from bushmaster. No risk of someone riping you off. They feed great I never had problem with them. The last round in the mag dosen't feed though, the follower locks the bolt open with the last round still in the mag. I look at it as telling me I have one last shot, then im F**Ked. As with any steel mag they fit tight until they get used and worn. I just pop them in and out of a mag well a few times, so they are loose enough to slap in and out fast. You won't get them to drop free like USGI mags unless you mill or sand them. They get a thumbs up in my book for great function and a relyable source of the same mags.
