So my search for GI type 20 round rebuild kits has come to naught. What Ive found is either overpriced (rather more than Im willing to pay) or not USGI style.

But These 'C-products' and other manufacturers 20 rounders are everywhere. Whats the quality like on these mags? Any brands to shy away from?
Oh and no plastic mags please, just not my style;)

They can be found, you just gotta be patient. As for the plastic ones, I was the same way, never owned one, decided to try one, absolutly the best mag I have. Go get 1 Pmag, you'll see what I mean.

Colt mags. Don't know if they're too expensive for your taste, but they're quality.

There's a reason some guys in the army use Pmags...

Thanks for the link, I had lost it earlier.
Man I cant believe these things are $20! Just last year I could get them for 5 bucks a piece from Copes! Insanity!

And theres a reason that the VAST majority of us didnt, theres no need for them. GI type mags work just fine.
Pmags were actually unknown in the line infantry until only recently. They seem to be an invention of the civi sector to try to improve upon a working formula.
Regardless, they are not for me.

You are correct sir.
That and any AR I will ever own. Im partial to the 20 round mag, my 'lucky' magazine in both tours was an old Nam era 20 rounder that I found at a range at Ft Hood. That thing never, ever stopped working.:D
