I bought some C products stainless steel/teflon coated magazines with anti-tilt followers. These magazines look great, nice black finish, and sound great. However, they are junk. Bought 10, tried out 4. 3 didn't feed last round and one ejected last round prematurely. This was repeated several times. Ended up selling all 10 and purchasing more P-mags. I've had no problems out of P-mags and Brownell's TAC.

I've got a few steel mags for my retro build mainly for looks. My rangemags and bug out mags are all Pmags. You just can't beat em.

That is strange. I have twenty C Products mags. The aren't the stanless, but they are teflon coated with the Magpul anti-tilt follower. I've not had a bit of trouble with any of them.

Maybe mine was a bad batch, but I'm not going to try them again. I'll stick to the P-Mags and TACs. Congrats to those whose saved a few bucks and got a quality product.

Left out important information regarding the stainless mags. Because the mags are made of steel, they are able to use a thinner piece of metal. Read this in article - did not measure myself. Maybe they just didn't have the dies set up right for the thinner guage.
