A good magazine company?

Whats a good company that makes magazines? I'm only listing the third party companies that I know of.

King Arms = Have to file down that nub
Mag = Feeding issues
STAR = ???? (anything wrong with these?)

Dont know anything about the STAR ones anyone wanna fill me in?

I have bought a 10pac of star magazines for my mp5. They were much better than the Mag brand. I found the mag brand fed well in my mp5 but weren't very durable. If I dropped them a few times on concrete they would break at the seams. I would definitely go Star for mp5 mags anyway.

i have star mags for my mp7 70rounders works wery well no feeding issue, star mags for my ak's and work wonderfully and i have some MAG mp5 mags (90rds) and i had some feed issue with them, but, if you lubricate them with silicone oil they will work fine!

King Arms were pretty solid for me on AK and MP5 Mags

MAG I don't think I had feeding issues yet but they seem pretty okay on my AK74

Got a 10 pack Star 30rds for my G36. Pretty solid build. Only issue, and its not a big 1, is that it won't fire the last 3-4 BBs. Not a big deal considering I got 10 to spare but they are low cap. Will try some of the others to see if its the same issue.

I bought 13 used Star realcaps from a guy who had pounded on them...I continue to do so, with no maintenance. they've been dropped, fallen on, and never oiled, just had the dirt and mud brushed off a them.
They kick ass.

Unless fired upside down, nearly all AEGs will not fire the last 3 bbs because they are used a leverage to push the above bbs in the chamber...once the spring in the mag tops out in its feed track...the distance inside the chamber is all thats left to go 18mm...

MAG are my favorite out of the 3. Never had to oil mine and only one of my gfs. Have had them for MP7, MP5, AK, and G36.

Star I do not like at all the G36 mags I had sucked hard, some wouldn't shoot, others jammed after a few rounds, And they barely fit into the XM8 I had. Even lubing them didn't correct all of the 10 mags which I bought new.

KA I have mid caps for my m4 and they aren't bad they feed well but they don't feed the last 10 rds.
