KCI .308 Magazines

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with these KCI G3 aftermarket magazines. Normally I would stay away from aftermarket magazines, but their M1 carbine magazines run flawlessly so I am interested to see if that same level of quality carries over or if these are just junk. Not to stockpile just for range fodder.

Here is the exact magazine being referenced:

With how cheap german surplus mags are why would you waste your time?

I have no idea what HK mags are going for at the moment. But for six bucks, order one and see.

$6 for steel HK mags

$4 for aluminum HK mags

With Surplus mags being so cheap, I wouldn’t mess with KCI mags. When the G3 surplus mags dry up, you will be kicking your self for not stocking up on them. If you just really want to get KCI mags, go for it, but with their spotty track record I wouldn’t.

Also think of resale of mags down the road. What do you think will rise in value? A HK German Made magazine or a Korean aftermarket KCI?

Think about the FAL magazine market now that surplus has dried up. What is worth more? A KCI Fal mag or a G1 FAL mag?

Buy cheap, stack it deep.
