Anyone have a good source either new or used 30rd USGI M16 Mags manufactured this century in bulk?

Your best source right now, well, tomorrow only, would be at the gun show. On a whim I scored two 30 round Pmags with windows (yeah, I know........) for $10 / each. That was the absolute lowest price at the show. After that prices started at $14 and up. USGI 30 round mags were going for $20 /each new.

The table I found the Pmags at is in the SAR building, near where AZCDL was set up and they had a LOT. I was tempted to go back and get a few more.

There have been several manufacturers of US GI mags. What exactly are you looking for?
You can still get good deals on metal and plastic mags, not necessarily USGI.
I really don't like endorsing ARFcom, but they are the best source on mag info

I’m looking to add another 50 mags to my inventory. I’m fine with Okay or cproducts etc. aluminum usgi (style) preferably new. I have found a few dealers on line under 8$ new which is about as good a deal as I could find.

If you are finding them for $8 / each for aluminum USGI then that IS about as good as you are likely to get anywhere. I didn't find anything aluminum that cheap at the gun show.

Kinda wish now I had picked up another half dozen or so of the Pmags.

Of all the various manufacturers of aluminum my preferred are Okay and Adventure Line in that order.

Good price but they are non-windowed. Hence my regret for not getting a few more at that price.

Back in the 80's we had Adventure Line mags, they worked, was probably as old as I was then. :)

Brownells has a ten pack of hexmags for 94.99. They work great in my AR10, haven't used one in a 15 yet. They probably would work just fine.

Between Hexmags and ETS mags, I can’t decide which ones are worse pieces of garbage in an AR-15.
