I have several of the newer 10 round mags and they work perfectly.

Are you talking about the 10 round post ban mags or the Pre ban mags that they sell when they have them? The Preban mags are actually Labell mags (I believe) Teflon coated. The newer post ban mags are good but the older franken mags that then now sell as the Bullpup mags aren't as good.

Are the the teflon coated aluminum 30 rounders, the post ban curved 10 rounders, Postban steel 10 roundrs, or the crappy steel 40 rounders. The only ones out of those that would be crap would be the steel 40 rounders with the steel 10 rounders following as the second crappiest of the group. The aluminum ones are good to go, though.

you may have one of two types of mags. The Labell mags I spoke of earlier, or someone took USGI mags and bought rebuild kits from Bushmaster. In either case you are good to go (As long as the mag bodies are indeed Alluminum USGI bodies).

he original pre ban bushmaster 30 rounders are teflon coated and made by labelles,they are high quality,I have 5 they are flawless.

The dimensions of Bushmaster magazines are spec., they were subcontracted out to LaBelle, a GI manufacturer as stated earlier. The Teflon, may or may not be spec(a lot of current debate, in another thread), BUT, I can't think of a single reason, spec. or not, that Teflon would HAMPER, performance of a mag. IN THEORY, a coating like Teflon, should only improve the performance of a magazine type mechanism. All of the Bushmaster magazines that I've used have fed well and worked consistently reliably, at least as reliaby as any spec GI mag.
