While polymer magazines do have their benefits and space age aesthetic, aluminum mags are not to be forgotten about. One of the benefits that aluminum has over polymer is that it does not swell or shatter in extremely high or low temperatures. The aluminum feed lips are also strong enough to withstand the pressure of a fully loaded magazine over long periods of time without bending or breaking.The history of Okay Industries goes back to WWII where they helped manufacture millions of M1 Carbine magazines for the United States Military. Fast forward and they helped co-develop the 30-round M16 magazine and has been a preferred supplier of magazines to the U.S. government ever since. Now Okay Industries are making their widely popular AR-15 magazines available to the public with the SureFeed and SureFeed E2 designs.
Good even finish on the mags I ordered. Appear to be as good as other metal GI mags I own. Springs were a little tight when loading each mag compared to other mags that have been loaded less than 4 times. I've not used these mags yet but based on visual, I'd order more. I'll have to cycle them through a couple AR's to test them but other reviews are good.
