Personally I like and on occasion use my pmags for military purposes but have never had a single misfeed or problem with magpul followers on usgi mags and have easily fired 9K rounds through them.
Have you ever been in combat? We aren't talkin about a day on the range...I too have little if any issues with GI mags...stateside, in the sandbox and the Stan is a whole different story. GI mags are and have always been flimsy crap...that's just coming from a guy who has used them for 20 plus years
