Looking for advise on magazines that are reliable and feed without issue shooting factory ammo. Also, tell me what mags to avoid. Thanks in advance for your input and knowledge.

Thank you

I have good luck with ASC and Elander (Alexander Arms) mags. I have had better luck with 10 round mags over the 28 rounders.

ASC mags allow just a tad bit longer rounds. Good and reliable too. Bought five, and they all work perfectly.

Same with the ar stoner mags I run. Anything over 12 rounds in a 25 is a no go. I stick with the 10 rounders.

Alexander Arms mags made by Elander is what I use. Great mags, never had a problem.

My post from a previous thread.

I only have one magazine and it's a 10 rounds metal one from Alexander arms, I believe a company called eLeander makes it for them. 

It's alright. About 150 shot through the rifle so far and no issues with function EXCEPT my 10 round mag can't actually hold 10. If i force the 10th round into the mag, then the mag is very hard to engage the mag release and probably won't load the first round because the bolt doesn't have enough forward force to push the first round out. 

Once again, I've had no failures related to magazine if I keep 9 or less rounds in my 10 round mag.
