I'm not here to debate whether promag is better than Surefire or Factory magazines. Personally; I don't think they are. However, for plinking magazines, shooting at the range, varmints, etc... they are fine. Anyway; if you're a member of sportsmansguide.com; they have promag .223 and 7.62x39 in 8 pack bulk; for $11.24 each ($89.97). If you're not a member, then the price is still only $12.50 each ($99.97). Of course, you have to buy the 8 pack, but that's about right for some good plinking and backup magazines. 8 of these; then a couple of higher quality magazines for "Real World" situations seem pretty good. Especially considering that the surefires will cost $30-$40 each. Oh; and if you don't need/want 8; you can get a 3 pack for about $17.50 each or one for $19. ($21 if not a member).

Overall, promag has been pretty good with magazines. The only thing they have botched up, is the built in bullet guide for the .223 saiga.

Old thread re-hashed. I have bought a bunch of new pro-mags, no issues.
Did you get any of the 10 round drums for the S12? Thoughts on them?

I've got a few of their 10 round S12 mags, flawless thus far. One 20 round drum, currently untested. I also picked up 10 of their AK74 mags, will test them out this weekend. Their products look well built though.

Good to know info on the drums. I got red-assed all over again reading old nailheads stupid posts. Glad we banned him.

Thanks for the info, I've been trying to decide if I want to buy one or not because not many people are saying anything about the 10 rounder.
I got a couple of the MD Arms 20 rounders, and those seem great.


I think pro-mag has made a turn for the better.
For the most part, yes, I think it was in the 90s they realized they needed to improve or fade away, I know most of they stuff from the 80s sucked and that's why a lot of people say that.

My experience with the Pro-mag S12 magazines was from their original batch, which was deemed to have been made with the wrong plastic... instead of send back the plastic the story I read was that they chose to send them out anyway "as-is". Sides tend to sag inward, causing hanging on the rounds. NOW... that was from a few years ago. The current production ones are apparently made with the correct rigid plastic. FWIW.

Dad has a 20-round Promag drum. Works great although a bit tweaky to load, as if the engagement lugs aren't tall enough to fully engage. Takes some work but it is loadable. Functions flawlessly...
