Most reliable?

I'd say a 10/20 or a 10/30 PMag.

You're better off converting PMags 30 or 20 round mags to 10 rounders. There's also a store somewhere where they cut down the Pmags to fit only 10 rounds but they are abit pricey.

IMO, make sure whatever magazine you decide to use, you use the magpul gen III followers. I have PMAGs, USGI 10/20's (favorite) and c-products 10 round mags. they all have the magpul followers and all feed reliably.

usgi 10/30 mags work flawlessly for me, (with green followers..) and they only cost about $10 plus rivets.. ive bump-fired about 200rd through one of them (just because its so awesome to do:D) and had no failures. if that's not good enough, i dont know what is....

That all depends on who and how they did the conversion. Ive seen some pretty craptastic jobs on fixing pmags down to 10 rnds.

pmags are nicer to the rounds when chambering.

you mean because of plastic feed lips not scratching the brass? good point.
my response was just based on reliability, as in chambering every round that is loaded into the mag.

Riflegear does 10/20 PMAG's that have a block that sits under the follower so that it's a true anti-tilt.

These are my mags of choice.

10/30's are just stupid. Too long, in the way, annoying, and only good for looks.

Native 10's are just too short and don't give you a good enough amount of purchase when you need to rip the mag from the gun.

10/20's are only about function, to me. They are long enough that you can get a good grip and pull the mag out of the well if you need to, but not long enough so that it looks like you're trying to look cool, or get in the way if you're shooting from a bench.

PMAG 30's when I'm in Arizona though. All the way :)

The best place to buy the Pmags is from MissionMTman here on Calguns. Excellent price and service

Pmags dont scratch brass and the bullet. the front of the mag also is lower so the brass doesnt catch like metal mags.
