What busted on it? The floorplate? And was it an older mag? All the ones I've gotten in the past few years have been GTG. I do have a few Promags that I bought way-back-when, and didn't know any better; now those ARE cheap. Still never have had an issue with them (the few times I've used them, lol), but they are decidedly cheaper than anything else I have.

Scott is spot on about everything he is saying, wether it be Manufacturers/Importers, Barrels, Mags, Etc.........

If you want to avoid problems listen to him, if you enjoy rolling the dice or just buy cheap substandard stuff, well theres no convincing some people.
