Default tapco mag for ar?

i bought a tapco 30 round mag last fall and got out and used it for the first time today. fed good felt sturdy. so has anyone had any long use with tapco? i've heard of feed problems with p-mags so are they worth getting? i have some metal 30 and 20 round mags but i think i like the "potential" durability of plastic/carbon made mags. any thoughts appreciated.

So you heard Pmags were crap and tapco is good???? Is this bizzaro world you live in or something?

The only thing that tapco makes that is worth anything is their FCG for the AK...all the other crap from them is crap.

With anything from Magpul...if you have issues...they will take care of it. What feed problems have you heard about Pmags??? Their 1st gen may have had some hiccups, but overall Magpul is a solid company.

wow, way to read way to much into a post! no, nothing you stated is accurate. i had heard tapco was crap but got one cheap and thought it actually worked pretty good and felt sturdy. have heard that pmags are the way to go but some on board have said they have had feed problems and was looking for more input before i buy some. so the last part of your post was helpful for what i was looking for thank you.

Just get you some Lancers. Tapco makes garbage imho. P-Mags are good too, But I prefer Lancers.

Pmags, $15 To $18 bucks each and work flawlessly. I have over 30 pmags and use each and every one of them alot latley an no problems with any of them. I also have a couple 40 round and 30 steal mags, not sure who they are made by but even those have worked great.

Had the 100 round drum out yesterday and it emptied every round through my SIG556..

Whoever told you they had problems with Pmags either didnt know what they were doing(lilely dont clean/lube properly), or were lying to you. Pmags are the best for the price.

I have seen too much tapco junk to trust the brand.
