Do you prefer Lancer or Magpul AR Mags?

Personally, I prefer the steel feed lips of the Lancers. They seem to hold up better IME.

    Horse apiece for function, I have not broken either yet with use, no preference.

    MagPul has served me well.  I don’t believe I have any Lancers in my stash so I didn’t vote.

    It’s a °IIIII° thing 😎

    Never used Lancer, but I wouldn't be opposed to them. I have probably 15-20 PMags floating around so I have no major motivation to try something else. I've carried milspec aluminum mags with the new followers in unfriendly places without any concern, though I never had occasion to learn if they worked or not first hand.

    I have a box full of magpul and 2 Lancers.   Never an issue I just trust magpul

    I’ve run Magpul since their first Gen. I’ve been running them long enough to wear out Gen 3 mags. 
    I’ve been running a few Lancer mags since Gen 1. 
    I just got some Gen2/3 Lancers. 

    I prefer the less noise from the Magpul (gotta be a field guy to understand quiet). But, do appreciate the metal feed lips of the Lancers. 
    I’ve not worn out a Lancer. 
    Magpul has a shelf life.

    When Magpul Mags go, you get double feeds. Once you get the first one……..the Mag is toast. It’s downhill from there.

    Haven't played with Lancers so can't vote with a clean conscience.  I don't have Zee's round count on Mag Puls, but I have been around them enough to know that by the time you kill one, you've most likely gotten your money's worth.

    My favorite combo is actually the Mag Pul upgrade anti-tilt follower installed into a quality mil-spec (Colt/Okay Industries) metal magazine body.
