The original Thermolds were very good. The current production (made by the new company that bought out the original) seem to be a mixed bag.
The new AK Thermolds I've seen seem to be O.K., but I have not extensively tested them. They do fit, feed, and hold the rounds in when fully loaded (more than I can say for some of the other new production Thermolds).
The original Thermold Mini-14 mags were (IMHO), among the best. I've yet to see any of the new production.
The original Thermold AR-15 mags worked well, except for the ones made in Canada using cheaper polymer. The new production Thermold AR-15 mags are (again IMHO) total garbage. I bought six of the newer twenty round Thermolds, and four would not even hold the rounds in the magazine when fully loaded.
I tried one of the new Thermold HK-91 magazines, and it was too big to fit in the mag well. After sanding it down enough to fit, it wouldn't lock in tight enough to feed reliably.
All IMHO, and YMMV.
