AR15 Magazines

Anyone bought and have first hand experience with the magazines that Apps47 is hawking?

Mission First Tactical AR15 30 round magazines. The $7.99 each price has me a little interested but I've not heard of them before.

No, and with AR mags, I would stay with either aluminum GI mags or Magpul mags. They work every time. It's not worth the hassle to buy something else.

Palmetto has 30 round D&H aluminums, which are excellent, for $7.99

Never used them. But the bigger question is, "why?"

If your goal is old-school authenticity, then you need to go with aluminum. Otherwise, I'd go with PMags. I don't think you could damage one without putting it atop a rock and purposely stomping it to death. Sometimes Palmetto has a daily deal for something you need, like ammo, at an already fair price, and they'll throw in 10 PMags.

I have a couple. So far they’ve functioned perfectly. I ended up getting a package deal from PSA for 200 rounds and 10 pmags that was good enoug I couldn’t pass it up.

"Why" IDK, because I can. Old school authenticity, naw in this case I could care less. I have about 10 metal Bushmaster mags and some metal Checkmate mags for the M1A. I really don't shoot the AR15 very much, mostly because no outdoor range close to home.
I'm ok paying for the Pmags, just wondered if these mags were just as good. I did not see rave reviews for this product so I will pass.

I am looking for the "Loaded with ammo Pmag deals" I missed a couple different offers. Let me know if you see any.

A few months ago I bought six 40 round Pmags and I have them and all the other mags I have loaded and ready for a range trip.
