It's tops if you want to have one or more high volume capacity magazines that offers 100% reliable functioning as a AR-15 magazine, whether used for semi-auto or full auto M-16 modes. I have purchased several and given as gifts to 2-3 law enforcment friends who have as duty rifles both types mentioned and whether firing an entire magazine load in semiauto or full auto in M-16's the magazines functioned flawlesly repeatedly!

Bought one, tried it, no problem, bought the second from another company for $40 less, worked as the first. Have both loaded for 3 months and will try them at 6 months. Like the balance. If there are no problems will buy 2 more, so each AR has three. They fit in my mag pouches. It would be nice if I could see what the remaining count was while in use.

I have purchased flashlights from Surefire before, so when I saw the ad for the MAG5-60, I jumped on it with NO hesitation. The product WORKS AS ADVERTISED! Easy to handle, no jams. I will purchase another one as soon as I can. Surefire has another GREAT PRODUCT!
