    I don't have any experience with them but the impression I'm getting from the internet is that they're hit-or-miss on quality control. When they work, they work great. Otherwise they kinda suck. They look like KCI mags without the Glock Austria stamp on the backside.
    Anyway, the most common problem seems to be rough edges that require "trimming" or spring replacements after only a few hundred rounds. The solution being a hobby knife and Glock replacement spring/follower.
    Order a few and let us know. Maybe you'll also discover who ASIAN MILITARY is in the process.

    I know a guy from Minnesota(shooter) that has a 9 MM Ruger PC carbine that could give one a workout ;)

    fwiw,

    i have some of the regular capacity versions and all came in USGI type of packaging and is why i got them, to keep the junk/dust/crap out while in storage.

    But what i noticed on the batch i bough, the feed lips were really sharp, so i buffed them down a bit.  Only on the ones i used/opened.  And the ones i used worked fine.

    Also, make sure they have a steel liner in them.  My LGS got some all plastic ones not sure who/mfg/brand and i asked for one of them to try/play.  He just gave it to me since its a POS.  The walls are too thin to hold shape and so when loaded with rounds, it will press against the inside of the grip making it difficult to insert.

    I dont know about you but when i see something with a price tag < 20 bucks, i will just buy 1 or 2 and try.  

    have fun

    I am patiently waiting for Shield Arms to offer a higher cap G43 Mag.

    For the price, assuming you're looking for 9mm mags, I would spend a little more on MagPuls personally.

    I agree, but, they are steel lined and 1/2 the price of the Glock version in that capacity, I still might be the huckleberry

    OK. . .there within what?  Ten bucks of a factory Glock mag, or about the same money as a Mag Pul?

    Glock factory mags are the best.  I have one korean  big stick I use for practice and no problems yet.  The plastic ones you speak of are probably ETS, I have two and they work great.  I also have one jageman.  It was given to me and it works fine also.  This is all pcc use.

    I tried Magpul mags. No reliability issues, but I don’t like the inability to track round count.

    I ordered one of their 15 round 48/43x mags to try out over a month ago.  Still waiting for it.  What they told me was that their manufacturer moved to another state and they are waiting for them to ramp up production again.  So in the mean time I’m plugging along with only 2 factory 10 rounders for the Franken43x...
