Most likly USA Mags.

I caution anyone against USA Mags.

I purchased 5 once and all 5 sucked so bad I backed over them with the truck.

USA mags do not fit well in the gun. I had to take them all out of their bags and test them in MY gun. At least CTD let me do that. But I only have ONE. I bought USGI or the 9rd competition mags (for the bench).

Who cares if they work? They are preban, and until the AWB sunsets....

Also - Can't you repair magazines or replace the body if it is broken? Even if the new body is dated after the ban? Just make sure that the "broken" mag body is unusable and labeled BAD just to make sure (be sure to keep posession of it).

I have 8 USA 30's and 6 40's. Out of all of those, only two
of the 40's had problems.
I did stop buying USA mags but they seem to work ok.

I bought one. After about 4 times of loading 10 rds in the magazine, the lips started to open up. You can easily bend them back, but eventually they'll break off.

I haven't seen any replacement bodies for AR-15/M-16 magazines.

I'd just spend the extra $4 to get a NIW SA-80 magazine. Most mag bodies, for glocks, sig, ruger, etc..., run about the same price as an off brand standard capcity(not reduced or restricted capacity) magazine.
