I bought a couple of these and, so far, they've functioned quite well.

They are straight body, 10 round mags that look like 20s.

Anyone know who makes them? Any known issues? I'm slow in recommending anything (I've used on 2 range trips with a couple hundred rounds fed per trip per mag), but so far so good.

That looks like one that I used to have. I think it was a promag. It was absolute ****. It used a fake green follower.

Looks like Promag to me. I picked one up that has functioned for me so far.

There was a thread on here about puting Magpul followers into these mags if you do end up having problems.

BM ad says it has a black follower. I have a suitcase full of black followers I'm planning on using as landfill material.

I'd wondered if they were Promags...

Maybe my rifles love me, cause I've yet to have a FTF/FTE with them. Bizarre, considering I had a couple with the C-Products.

I'm upset about the loss from market of the Bushmaster 10/20's that are pure perfection, IMHO. I've been disappointed by the C-Products. I wish I had some other option for my BB build.

My BM 10/20's do not have the magpul follower like my 10/10's do. Is that the case with everyones?

I have a couple of those branded by there manufacturer promag. They are excellent mags once you upgrade the mag follower to the magpul follower (instructions can be found with the search feature).

Replacing the poorly designed Promag follower with a Magpul follower will solve all your problems.

I have one of these mags but it has a green follower....I love the dang thing....No problems at all in about 2000 rounds....I bought it from ammo bros and plan on going down there to buy at least 3 more...

That's where I got mine from. Promag is a local company so they just driver over and pick them up.

So called Green Followers were developed to improve 30 round mags. Green followers only have an advantage in curved 30 round mags.

That is the mag that Vulcan has been using. 20rd straight that only fits 10rds and has a black plastic (recycled?) follower.

Hooooooooooorible.

Buy your mags from C-Products.

Thanks for posting that link.
I have a couple of these mags. One works fine and the other jams or double feeds with regularity. I'll be trying the Magpul fix later today.
