We ran these thru the paces. We initially ran 100 rounds apiece in them in a solid rain setting with temps in the 90s in a rapid fire method straight out of the package. We buried them loaded in mud then wiped just enough off to make the gun function, speed drill etc. For 90% of shooters they will be great. They wouldn't be my first choice if I was dropping into Mogadishu but for range, competition, stocking up etc. they seem like a great deal. We did experience malfunctions with the amount of mud we buried it in which I expected but cleaning them is a breeze which is a big plus. We noticed a line forming on the top due to being slammed into the frame but it seemed cosmetic. They only have a loaded indicator hole for the 17th round which can be a plus in keeping out gunk but a downside if you actually used it to do a quick check. The price is awesome and I would recommend them to anyone wanting them for anything but true combat. I'm still on the fence with that. and of course DSG has great service that I've used for years so no complaints there. Time will tell and after a year or so of competition, hunting etc I will try and report back on spring wear.

magpul g17 mags
I have run 5 of these in my gen3 glock 19. They functioned just as well as the glock manufactured mags. I have on ran round nose through them so far, but a lot of it no issues. The glock brand mags do feel better made and I'd trust them more for defense/duty carry.

Bought 3 of these, great price and quick shipping from DSG. However I had about 10 Failure to Feed malfunctions during 150 rounds fired out of a Glock 26. The only good thing about these is you get to practice your manipulations while clearing all the random malfunctions.

I ordered some of these and have run them extremely hard. I have found the same reliability with these that have had with my factory glick mags in my gen 3&4 19, lav gen3 17, two gen3 34's, 17L and 9mm ar15 using qc10 lower. Couldn't be happier with them. And as always no one beats DSG's customer service, fast shipping and price.

Good to go
I have four of these and I'm about to order more. I have run these hard to see how they hold up, and they fit and function as well as my factory magazines.

I purchased the 5 pack of the 17 round mags and over the last year of use have seen the mags start to swell near the top, causing drop free issues when full. The round count hole is an issue if you want to load out anything other than full or to do a quick check to verify rounds remaining. The high vis follower is a real plus along with the easy to remove floor plate.
For training these mags can't be beat, based on price and overall reliability. I never experienced any feed or magazine induced malfunctions. With that, I am pulling them from my duty belt and plate carrier due to the drop free and round count issues.
