I snagged a Stag AR today at an online estate auction today. What is the current wisdom on the best value mags these days.
How are they over-hyped? They don't dent and stay dented, they don't rust, they're quieter when in contact with other gear, and they run like a scalded dog, even topped off completely with 30 instead of 28 rounds. I have yet to get a magazine related failure with PMags.while P mags are good, they are way over hyped. for a lot less money, the USGI M16 20 and 30 rounds are excellent mags

I can say the same thing about the USGI mags that I have as well.they run like a scalded dog, even topped off completely with 30 instead of 28 rounds. I have yet to get a magazine related failure with PMags.
That's called effective marketing. If you don't like Magpul, don't buy Magpul. Like you, I owned and used USGI mags for years, but the PMags are a significant improvement, like it or not. How much time have you spent rebending mag lips? No fun. PMags also come stock with the anti-tilt followers mentioned above and a silicon spring. They don't need upgrading as the more used USGI mags do. USGI mags are fine for plinking or sterile range time, and some are definitely better than others. For reliability in the field, the PMags have proven themselves to me and many others that use these for a living. There's a reason they're near the top of the wish lists of currently deployed personnel in the field.the marketing of them from the manufaturer and all the gear queers
