This is great news that you are considering manufacturing your magazines again. I have a few SS versions, they work great, I will buy more when they are available. I will also spread the news on this.

The PMI mags I have work great, so yes, I'd be interested in seeing them produced again.

Quality 10 rouders in Cali.

I'd love to get quality 10 rounders in Cali. what ever the price. I've got so much in my ASI mini that $75 each will even work, but you would sell alot at the $35-$40 range.

I have Promag 10s and they are ok. 1 out of 4 had some issues with locking into place. I just orderd some John Masen 10s and will post back with a report when they arrive.

So i got 2 of them in the mail a few days ago cuz they were on back order at Midway.

Pros
-Affordable
-Longer than Most other 10s

Cons
-Seem to be painted(one is glossy and the other is semi gloss)not blued
-No hole in the floor plate to aid in standard disassembly

Only one of the two that I got locked into place easily. If I had to compare these to the Promags and HAD to buy 10s, the Promags would get my vote. They are hit and miss with fitment too however BUT they are blued and built closer to factory.

Are the promags any good? Cheaper Than Dirt has a 20rd for $9.97. But that one comment has me a bit skeptical. Thanks.

Promag polymer mags have had quality control issues in the recent past. They usually need to be modified slightly before they work properly. If you don't mind having to tinker on them go for it.

From what I have seen, the steel 20's from Promag are outstanding. I would go that route personally. YMMV

I've been looking for the Ruger factory 20 round magazines, but they run from $49 and up, depending on where you get them, even at gun shows.

Smoke Wagon Gear is selling them for $42.95 ( http://www.smokewagongear.com ) and the code SGN4ME saves an additional 10% off on a customer’s first non-gun order. This brings it down to $38.65 per magazine, and that is by far the lowest price I’ve ever found for factory original 20 round magazines. In fact, the prices seem to be going up now that Obama looks like he's headed to the White House.

I received two Ruger factory magazines today (NIB w/LEO markings), and with $9 in shipping, the total came to $86.47, still way below even gun show prices, and with no sales tax.

Californian M30 owners, take note

Just bought 3 new old stock USA 10 rounders on gunbroker.com from a guy in Goleta, near Santa Barbara. They needed to be wiped down from long storage in their original bags and one feed lip tweaked. Otherwise, good stuff. He says he has 3 more still for sale.

Hope this helps someone out.

C.J. - thanks so much for posting. I own a Ruger Mini-14 tactical, and one of most common laments is the lack of high quality, hard-working "after market" magazines. As you have discovered, if you build a better mousetrap.........

If I might make a suggestion, I'd like you to consider bringing PMI's production capabilities to my adopted home state - Michigan. I have long advocated that this state could rise up to become "The Arsenal of Democracy" once again, if only a manufacturer with a bold vision would step up. Although I am also new to this forum, feel free to send me a private message if you'd care to discuss it further.

That said, I will tell you that there are MANY folks that would welcome PMI back into the market, with open arms and wallets. I hope you'll seriously consider dusting off the production machinery and getting back to business. I will support you, 100%. God Bless and best of luck !
