Troy, just curious, why do you put the USA thermolds as second Tier? Just curious, thanks, for any info. Kyle

Good info man! I know what to look for at the Gun Shows now!

Thanks for the info. I just bought my first AR-15 and I was wondering what would be the best mags for it. I know western metal suck. I had some of them for my mini-14.

Why are Orlites listed behind Thermelts? They are both inferior to USGI, but what sets them apart from each other?
Link Posted: 7/26/2003 9:37:55 PM EDT
i'm guessing the master molder 20's would go in the second tier? I have two, and have never had a problem, ever.

Those would be the British steel SA-80 mags. Looks like Troy puts them in the first tier. I've never used them.

Hiya Troy ... most exalted one! [>]:)] Saw some mags marked "K" Industries - the "K" logo has a circle around the K, and below in very small type is stamped I beileve: New Briton, Conn. They also made some for LEO and the same are date stamped. Some are not date stamped with no markings suggesting no LEO - export - military at all, therefore making it legit for civillian ownership. They also have green followers, and are in a regular finish, nothing special. Can you give me the scoop on these mags? Thanking you in advance.

A comment on the mags with the little "England" sticker on them. I bought one at a gun show and it's an absolute piece of crap. Lots of malfunctions and somehow the bolt(?) was leaving huge gouges on the follower. I also noticed that it's a bit heavier than the aluminium ones so the "England" marked ones may be steel (and may rust). I have a number of USGI mags that I "Forgot" to turn in when I left the Army and I haven't had any problems with any of them. I have also had an Orlite mag crack on the front end at the feed lips after only limited use. Anyone else had any bad luck with the "England" mags?
Link Posted: 10/29/2003 12:23:54 PM EDT
Can anyone tell me the cutoff date for 30 round USGI mags being allowed to be owned by the public and not LEO ? I have some Okay mags stamped 6-91 .

Troy, Do the Imperial Defense mags fall into the British steel SA-80 category? I picked up two from the EE but these have a smooth black finish instead of the rough gray finish my other "English" mags have. The certainly look nice but I have yet to give them a go. The floor plate is stamped "Imperial Defense" and they have the "English" sticker on the side. Thanks in advance Marc

They're 1st tier mags and one of the manufactures of USGI mags. [b]3. USGI aluminum mags (includes Colt mags)[/b]
Link Posted: 1/2/2004 12:34:41 PM EDT
Thank you for the info. I have not bought any mags in years.I had heard stories that the brits did not like the quality of the USGI mags, so they went to steel, but never heard anything else more about it.Now i know which brand,and who to buy from . Thanks

I am curious if anyone else has had bad luck with British steel mags. I know (from this thread) that there are at least 3 manufacturers. Special-K, 1) do your mags have any identification other than the England sticker? 2) What rifle are you using them in? I am considering trying some steel mags as range mags and would like some more info before I buy. I generally stay away from any equipment that is not USGI (except nato surplus ammo). Thanks! p.s. Did you happen to forget to return any AN/PEQ-2A or PVS-17 units... [;)]

Armalite is now selling Promags as OEM for them. They send a 10 rounder out with their rifles. Also, I was at a gun store and saw oodles of Promag 20s in Armalite bags- 40 bux a pop. [rolleyes] As for the promags, I ordered one 20 rounder from Sportsman's Guide some time ago and haven't had any problems with it. Just lucky, I guess. I still wouldn't recommend them.
