    This is pretty hilarious. 8 years ago the USGI mags were looked at as the worst thing since cancer in favor of polymer magazines. Now we are back to praising the USGI metal mags.

    The hype train is real.

    Hi Phil, what kind of images are available, especially in profile, for these Surefeed mags? The press release is ambiguous about what these magazines are, and judging by the marketing and the recent date of google search results, could these be the new US Army improved pattern of USGI magazine?
