    Are there any reliable 30 round carbine mags out there?

    Back in the 70's I had some GI 30 round mags that worked fine, at least with ball ammo (not so much soft point). Unfortunately, they were stolen out of my car, & by that time GI 30 rounders had gone the way of the dodo. Over the years I've tried after-market 30's from a variety of sources, but I haven't found any that feed reliably. If anyone knows of a brand/source that actually works, please let me know.

    Found this:

    Might want to jump on it.
    A little chunky, but if actual GI contract, it's worth it. I'd grab them both myself if I didn't live in a communist state.
    Had to get some 10 rounders because of their ridiculous arbitrary mag cap rules. I think they were Mec-Gar or Pro-Mag (the latter sounds right). Wouldn't surprise me if they made a 30 as well.
    I keep seeing KCI 30 rounders available when I run a search. Anyone in Free America ever use one and can vouch for reliability?

      MRusan, thanks for the reply. $75 apiece is too rich for my blood. 30 rounders fall under "wants', not "needs", as I've got tons of 15 rd. mags. Still, I'd like to have a few that actually work. I think the KCI mags were one of the ones I tried with no success, but I'm not sure anymore.

        I have 2 KCI 30 round mags and several 15 round mags that have all worked flawlessly. I have fired primarily all Korean Surplus from my Underwood and the only issue I have had was a few rounds were gummed up with corrosion. I missed a few when cleaning them up and wanted to see how they would perform. Well, that was the couple that fed bad. I know some of the KCI mags were shipped out with the mag spring in backwards and caused some feeding issues. Hope this helps.

          How many 30 rounders do you need. I can check my stash and maybe help you out. All my stash is U.S. except the HK stuff.
