Interesting videos.  I have had zero malfunctions from any of the mags.  But last time I went to the range I took 2 friends with so we were at three tables.  I got to watch the gun function while someone else was shooting it.  The empty ejection out of the scorpion was strong without problems.    But at times it was throwing the empties straight to the right and maybe slightly back.  Not throwing them more forward and upward like the scoprion in the video.   Guy at the table to the right was consistently getting hit in the head with the empty brass.

Now that I see the video next time I take it to the range I am going to look for ejection difference between all the mag brands.

Between the manticore lips being sharp when loading and seeing the video of the lips falling off, I will probably just sell my manticore arms mags and focus on testing with PSA, magpul, and CZ mags.

I just purchased three of these to try this weekend. They drop very well with my Tandemkross Titan extended magazine release. My CZ magazines dont drop as easily for what its worth.

Hardly a large sample size but I ran 30 rounds each in 3 samples I purchased, and had one failure to feed in one magazine. I reloaded that particular magazine to 32 the second time and ran it flawlessly. I like how the empty magazine drops by gravity alone. My CZ 30 rounders don't.

I wouldn't lube them, you're just asking for trouble. They will collect all kinds of crud with lube in them . Use them, see how they work for you first, then if you have issues you could try lubing them.
Mine have been used exclusively with a suppressor on my Scorpion.  Suppressors tend to get your bolt, receiver and magazines covered in carbon but my mags have NEVER had an issue and have never been lubed. Try em' first!

Well dry, my were not worth a #$%^.  So I sold them. LOL  Try dry graphite if you do not prefer wet lubes.

For the last 30+ years, I have used either Hornady "DriLube" or Remington "DryLube" to lubricate my magazines. The Lubricant goes on wet, then the carrier evaporates and leaves behind a dry lube. I use either on all of my mags, (rifle, pistol, SS, steel, aluminum or polymer), after a thorough cleaning, reinstall the follower then springs, hose down the inards well, reinstall the base plates and turn upside down to drain and dry. I have eliminated almost 100% of my mag issues since I started this regimen. I've never had an issue with either lube damaging the followers or polymer base plates. I don't know what the liquid volatile carriers are but use with plenty of ventilation, no open flames and protect from skin exposure.
