I had a bad start testing my Promag 10 rounders. I have two minis and one was having extraction problems. Today I brought the mags to the range with my other Mini-14. I shot about 120 rounds through 10 magazines. Here's what happened:

I loaded all of the mags with 10 rounds. 9 functioned flawlessly. Not even a problem getting the first round to feed as I reported earlier with my other Mini-14. One of the mags, I had a problem with the last round, it stovepiped pretty bad. It actually bent the round. I tried it again with 10 more rounds, another jam. Then, I pushed the follower up and down several times to see if it was catching on anything. I loaded it with 10 more round two more times. No problems.

Would you keep these? My only fear is that I will see this come up on the other mags too. Maybe I just got luck? Any input?

Would you like to have someone shooting back at you while you have a misfeed? That 10th round could cost you valuable seconds if you have to remove the jam... Just a thought. Fortunately, wild game doesn't shoot back.

Dave are these the best 10rnd mags you've had so far? I thought you had already tried John Masen's new 10 rnd. mags? The only other 10rnd mags I know of are the Eagle brand plastic ones CDNN had on sale. John Masen used to make the 10rnd mags for Western. I don't think there are to many folk's makin 10rnd mags for the Mini.

These worked better than the John Masen ones I tried. I just got done taking apart the Promag 10 rounders. I can see where the front of the follower is hanging up on the side of the mag case on the last round. This, I think, would cause the tip to be low. Out of the 10 mags, 4 show this problem. Although, I only had a failure on one.

Does anyone have comments on the Eagle 10 round mags?

Dave maybe you could sand a little off the follower to keek it from hanging up? I have'nt heard any comment on the 10rnd Eagle mags. CDNN has them on page 58 of their newest catalog $9.99ea. The add says their guaranteed for life and you can connect 2 mags together. Here's CDNN# 1-800-588-9500 if you want to call'em. www.cdnninvestments.com

Dave, if that one magazine continues to work fine, I'd keep it if it were mine.

On the other hand, if it won't work 100% for 100 rounds - I'd return it
