I'd think SA80 mags, just for the durability sake. However, if it were me, I'd grab some USGI mags, and do it that way.

Personally, I would only depend on USGI. However, The Brit mags are close enough to the USGI that I would choose those over any polymer AR mags. For peace of mind, though, i stick with aluminum USGI.

If I had to choose between the 2, I would take the SA-80's. As others have stated, I would rather have USGI's.

Ditto on the USGI Now for your question... Use 'em & Lose 'em? Brit steel does the job. A NIW loaded fired & discarded SA 80 would hold up in a riot situation. For the long haul: US made Thermolds. They are light, don't rust, and beat out the hype BS that many spread about them. I wouldn't say the same about Canadian Thermolds though.

Where would be a good place to buy the U.S. thermolds?

nothing beats the steel for stregnth and are easy to keep up with like my steel M14 and AK mags,Rounds seem to strip off smoother than aluminum.I switched to the steel sa80s for shtf mags although I still have my stock of GI aluminum as well.Just today blasted off 300 rounds of SA ammo that the mags had been loaded with for the last 4 months and they functioned flawlessly.

I would stick with USGI. I have a few US Thermold magazines and have cracked the lip on one. I ejected a partially full magazine onto the dirt while working on a malfuction drill and cracked the lip. I tried to locate the manufacturer to see if this was a defect, but couldn't locate them. Hope this help. YMMV
