A little data point here:
I was putting on a class last winter.. and we cold soaked our gear.. rifles, mags, optics, ammo , outside overnite.
It was 9F when we went to the range.
Lancers seemed to provoke frequent jams when this cold.
My guess would be something to do with the geometry of the steel lips changing.
Switched to , Tangodowns, Pmags and Troys for the day.. I generally rank Lancers high.... but in this cold the Lancers were no good.
I have a lot of the Magpuls I need to reinstall the covers tho I only load to 28 no matter what brand it is, I have actually dented brass with some mags loaded to 30 when inserted with a closed bolt.
I use just about any mags. The only mag failure I ever had was a Brownells 20 round GI mag loaded with steel cased. The first and second rounds wouldn't feed. Other than that every single mag I've ever used has been 100%.
I like Lancers best but they're expensive. My go to is 20 round PMags for bench work and coyote hunting, and I save the Lancers for fun shooting.
I pretty much run the military surplus metal mags. Never had a problem with any of them.
I ordered 4 Lancer mags. My thought is with no dust covers and metal lips they will be perfect for keeping them in the rifles. Hot and ready to go, no concerns of "will the plastic lips" or "28 rounds enough?".
Lancers are among the best. You should be pleased with them.
Hope so. If the four prove satisfactory then purchase more for the "load outs" and reassign our P-Mags as empty spares.
They'll be good, and really, GI mags should be good too, if you get the better quality ones. I wouldn't be afraid to leave my D&H or Bushmasters loaded up in the gun...
