After literally years of waiting, I was contacted yesterday by phone and informed that they are starting to fill backorders for these. I expect to get my hands on them some time next week and the following weekend will try and get out and test them. There are already a few of them cropping up on gunbroker, but people want $50 for them there so if you want them wait, DSA sells them for $25/ea.

OK, so I finally made it out to the range with 4 of the new production 30 round magazines. The finish on them is nice and for all the talk DSA gave me about how they were "re-engineering" and or "redesigning" them (as opposed to just making more like the surplus ones floating around)... Outwardly they appear to be identicle to the surplus ones. I haven't opened one up so I don't know if they have changed anything internally though it seems terribly unlikely.

The short version is that I fired 30 rounds out of each magazine, (all through a relatively new DSA rifle) some slow, some rapidly, and with 4 different kinds of ammo. They all functioned without issue. At $25 each, I am planning to get 2 more at least.

It is worth mentioning that I was on the range with someone who had some of the DSA new production 20 rounders and he was having a lot of problems with them. I have 4 of them myself and they have been fine but this guy's mags just wouldn't feed at all. I watched him shoot from surplus magazines with no problems and even had him try one of my 30 round mags which again worked great, so it wan't a rifle problem, he just got a dud batch on the 20s.
