C-Mags work pretty well. I wouldn't expect them to take too much abuse, but at least they do work out of the box.

Everything else I've seen has been problematic from the getgo.

I've never heard anything good about them. As to say, everything I've heard has been bad. Real bad.

I've shot a fair amount of ammo through .223 C-Mags. They do work. They're not milspec, though, so I wouldn't expect them to take a real pounding. I've heard of guys breaking them, but have never seen it happen. Spare parts are supposedly relatively easy to come by. A friend of mine hoses 5.56 through them in an HK33 by the metric ton. So they do work.

I do not know if anyone is interested or not but I found a 90 round magazine on cheaper than dirt for $129.99

I have not used it, but for the price I thought that I would at least some other people know about it

Here is a link to it

Who makes the best snail magazines? If you have experance with them it would help.
MWG-90's
Not bad, but the feed tower can crack (it is replacable) if you drop it/are rough with it. The last dozen rounds can be a motherf**ker to get in w/o a loader. Makes the entire firearm till to the left. If you are right handed, you can support the 'drum' with the crook of your left arm. If you are a lefty...you're sol!

Beta Mag.
The weight is balanced on both sides, but, on an AR, the mag catch is hard to get at. Makes the firearm rather bulbous and awkward in the middle and lastly, it is not the most durable item out there.

Neither of these magazines are tough enough for duty (LE/Mil) useage.

If you have the money to buy one, as a range toy, why not?

If you are actually looking at these for some sort of duty usage, just buy 30 round magazines. They're much cheaper and will take more abuse.
