Does anyone have experience with these? Are any aftermarket mags available that don't suck?

I've owned several over the years including the variant made for the Israeli Air Force. I've always had factory mags to use but heard bitching about after-market mags and no one I spoke with knew of any good after-market mags to recommend. Sorry.

I have an AR-7, it's great for what it was built for, down and dirty survival. The trigger sucks big time, but you can get used to it pretty easy, and its quite accurate. I bought mine for 110 with two factory mags. You can get hi-cap plastic ramlines I think they are, but I have seen only one place selling them before, and for like 60 bucks! NO WAY!
I have never had a problem with my mags, The local big-5 sporting goods store sells AR-7s so they also sell factory AR-7 mags. If you can find an AR-7 for around 120-130 I say get it, theyre worth it for a hoot!

Wish my experience was as favorable, I've had one Armalite and three Charter arms, if they were accurate they wouldn't work, if they would work they weren't accurate. Great package though.

I had a Charter Arms AR7 from the 70's. It always worked and was accurate enough. A target rifle it isnt, but I never had to much trouble hitting what I was shooting at. The only trouble I had was the butt cap cracked in real cold weather while putting it back on.

AHA!! Mine too! I always wondered if the butt caps cracked easily, or if it was just mine. Duct tape on the inside and it's all good!(and waterproof) Sorta.

Mine has been great since I found the ammo it likes - mine's a Henry.

My buttcap cracked in cold weather as well (-20 degrees). Looking for parts online, AR-7 Industries wanted $6.00 for the cap - and $25.00 for shipping!... I emailed Henry and they sent me a new one free of charge and free shipping. I started to like Henry a lot that day and will be purchasing from them again.
