What are the best M1 Carbine mags out there? I want to know because the ones I have suck and have had feeding issues from the get go.

Military surplus 15 rounders are the safest bet.
I am not sure myself on the legalities of getting kits here to replace the ones you have that suck though.
If you have thirty round mags there are Asian surplus mags that someone may part up and kit out to you but again, I don't know.
None of the after market mags are worth the fuel the blow them to hell IMNSHO.

maybe someone can make and offer for sale some CA legal 10/15 round magazines made out of USGI surplus standard mags. I would buy at least a couple.

What ammo are you using? My M1 Carbine HATES wolf ammo and isn't particular fond of the white box either.

S&B and MagTech it seems to do beautifully with...

I don't know which are the 'best' but I got two of the magazines from Fulton Armory, and three Triple K magazines from another vendor. They all look the same, so I wonder if the Fulton Armory mags are made by Triple K. So far I haven't had problems with any of them after shooting about 200 rounds (Aguila ammo purchased from CMP).

I got a whole lot of them from Scherer MFG and I have not had time to inventory them, put them on my website, or anything else. I might try to get that done soon and take a bunch out and run them through my carbine.

Fulton's have a great reputation - mine have been flawless.

Of course nothing beats those old 15 rounder GI mags you've had since 1990 in a box.

Oh yea...the Aguila ammo it seems to like too...and so do I. The packaging is smaller and takes up less space in the closet for a few thousand rounds!

Also make sure you're not shooting soft point bullets. M1 Carbines prefer ball ammo.

I have some Fulton 10 rounders and some old USGI 15's. All have worked fine. I did rebuild a couple of my USGI 15's with Fulton 30 bodies and they have sucked so far.
