So the quest to find the very last AR magazine for sale in the world continues....

Today while shopping for ammo at a local gun shop I was stunned to see a pile of brand new metal AR mags on the shelf. They just got them in within the past few hours. At $25 each I figured it was a good deal (by todays prices, not a month ago). Well I see it is one I never heard of, a ASC, New Britain CT. Don't know anything about them. I thought it was a typical aluminum mag the I see the "SS" on the side. I do some research and I find it is actually stainless steel, I didn't realize it because of the black phosphate finish. Seems like a good mag, I'll try to get another tomorrow if they are not sold out. So how good is this make of mag?

I understand they are formerly C-Products and that they make good magazines with anti-tilt followers. Don't use them myself. Maybe someone here does.

I have a bunch of their aluminum mags from when they were C-Products. I like the followers they work well and I would even use them (if I got a good price) if I were rebuilding my GI mags. I have not heard anything negative about the SS mags.

Well I just bought another ASC mag. So now I have a mated pair that I hope I can breed. By the way, I was just up at Riley's, Hooksett NH, they have about 4 or 5 dozen new Korean made AR steel mags in brown wrapping going for $25.95 each, limit 5 per customer (and that's the only hi-cap AR mags they have. And no 223/5.56 ammo whatsoever).

Oh, and I just saw this story about Magpul PMags, seems like they have hit the 1 million back-ordered mark: PANIC: One Million AR-15 Magazines On Backorder | CNS News
