I was soured on plastic magazines about 20 years ago.....wasted lots of money on junk. Plastic magazines bulge and split and the feed lips are delicate and wont hold rounds in once they bulge. I recently bought a new Sig Sauer m400 with all magpul furniture and it came with the famous "P-Mag". I decided to order several of the Lancer AWM in olive green to go with it. These magazines are sexy! You dont have to pop on a plastic cover to keep tension off of the feed lips like with those pmags. Tested the Lancer mags at 30 degrees and snowing hard. ..great texture to grab in the cold and zero malfunctions of any kind....pmags ran fine but were extremely slick to my numbing hands...especially when wet. The Lancer mags fit my pouches better, are easier to keep a grip on, and are absolutely reliable! The steel feed lips remind me of a garand clip and feel similar. I think that the steel feed lips on the Lancer AWM will outlast the plastic feed lips of a pmag. Most people dont fire thousands of rounds out of a single polymer mag and never think about it....but i have fired thousands and thousands of rounds out of my m@p 15/22 with polymer mags and believe me......the feed lips wear out ....but this cant happen on the Lancer advanced warfighter magazine. I am very impressed ....and not only do I trust my life to Lancer Advanced Warfighter magazines....I also trust my families life to them. I keep my home defense carbine loaded with Lancer magazines.

This magazine feeds quite well and appears to be very well constructed. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the fact that with a full mag you have to really make sure you slap the bottom of the mag pretty hard to ensure it's actually seated in the weapon. I would rate the amount of force needed to seat the mag to be higher than factory Colt mags and Brownell's brand mags. Granted those don't have polymer in their construction but when compared to PMAGs, they require much more force to seat the mag in place. I've been using a mixture of Colt,Brownell's, PMAG and now these to see which indeed is the best for use in Colt AR-15s. I have both a personal weapon (AR-15A3 Tactical with HBAR) and duty weapon (Standard Colt AR-15 M4 clone) . Too early to tell which is the "best" in my opinion. My early impression is a slight advantage to the PMAG. Time will tell if the feed lips on the all plastic PMAG mag hold up. I've only been using them a year or so.
