    Haven't had an issue with a single one of mine. Common sense says the polymer would wear faster but I don't think it amounts to a hill of beans for most people.

    Only time I've heard of seen it been an issue is with 10/22s. Then again that could also be that 22s get shot so much they have the opportunity to have 4000 rounds fired with the same magazine.

    Magpul. I have a few lancers and they don't work very well, even in my lancer lower. I have over 12,000 rounds through the same 4 magpul mags and have never cleaned them or replaced springs.

    I have some of both but would say I slightly prefer the Lancers. Not sure you can go wrong with either. Try them both and see which you like better. You'll end up spending far more money on ammo than you ever will on mags IMO.

    I have seen Lancers at the Chantilly show. About the only time I have seen them.

    I ran fine with Magpul but ended up switching to Lancers in 3-gun because many of the pros did and never looked back. Still have a couple 40 rd Magpuls and one extended 48 rd. Magpul and they work fine. Just not a big fan of plastic feed lips. Too easy to get damaged and then not feed good. But so far the ones I have still work fine. Also like the transparent Lancers as I can see how many rounds I still have in the mag.
