These look well made and are in plastic wrap (not bags). After my AOM 130 arrives, I'll let you know how well they work.

My 10 rounders were very oily. I took them apart and cleaned with brake/carb cleaner. Also the springs were installed backwards. They work fine now.

I just received a few of the 15 round magazines from these guys. Only one of the six magazines had a proper length/strength spring.
I had heard about this going in, so I factored in the cost of replacement springs. Which still made for very cost effective new magazines.
What I was surprised to see though was how the spring is just cut on one end and not wrapped back in on both ends like a GI spring.
I'm very pleased with the overall construction of the magazines though, they came well oiled and with good bluing on them. The mag followers are of good construction also, and I didn't need to do any fine tuning or work on the feed lips as they were all in spec.
Once the upgraded springs were installed they all run like champs.

If your not limited to a magazine of 10 rounds then stay away from magazines made in the USA. Not one of the commercial makers has a good track record with making carbine magazines. Get WW2 USGI magazines or some of the ones made in Korea. These work from the start.

I have both the 30 and 15 rd ones. I opened and cleaned all and yes, the 15 rounders springs are 1 coil short. BUT they all worked just fine when tested for function.
