Question Reliability of Magpul AICS magazines



Advertise Here

I'm working on a Savage 10 build in a chassis that accepts AICS pattern magazines. AICS proper mags are pricey, and I've read about Ruger made AICS compatible mags not being capable of long term storage loaded (because rounds can fall out). How is the reliability of Magpul made AICS mags? I imagine they're built well like all other Magpul products I've bought over the years. I'm looking for first hand experience if you have any. Thanks all!

I have two Savage Scout rifles in .338 Federal
100% good with those mags
I have first hand experience
I am not 100% Magpul on everything
But here I am 100% on the Magpuls

They great thing about the actual metal Aics mags is that you can bend the feed lips. This way you can adjust how they feed into your firearm. The magpul ones either feed well or they don't. I have had issues with them not allowing the round to come up at the proper angle. If I have that issue with the metal one I can tweak the feed lips and fix the problem. The magpul aics mag is durable and I have not seen any problems with rounds just coming out of them while being stored loaded.

A friend of mine has a Ruger Gunsite Scout that users AICS. He threw the Ruger one away and bought several Magpul and several metal ones. He's never had an issue with either.

We went through $400 in 308 one day with that rifle and never had a hiccup.
