Hey everyone! Been out of the game for a while (deployed out of the states for almost 2 years) so I am a little behind on the times.... I am looking for the best magazines currently available. I have an original Scorpion SBR from when they first came out and had issues with the cracked feed lips. About 2 years ago I got on the 32 round mags with the metal feed lips and I had double feeds with them probably 10 out of 500 rounds. Just enough to make me want to look elsewhere....

I see that Magpul finally released a magazine for the Scorp, is this the go to magazine now?

No issues with the new windowed mags from CZ but they are a little harder to find now.

Magpul 35 rds worked great in both of mine.  Just like other versions of PMAG (AR/AK/Glock) these are solid and relatively cheap.

PSA AKV mags - Some of the earlier generations dropped free but you can slightly modify any to drop free out of your Scorpion.  I got a few older mags and they are flawless.

I've been running Magpul and Manticore mags primarily with couple CZ factory mags
with 100% reliabilty,  I have tried 2 of the PSA mags that gave nothing but problems
and I sent them back and received 2 new ones with same, feeding issues mostly,
I sent them back to PSA.  Bottom line what works for you stay with them ....

Two of the more recent smoked 30 round magazines cracked feed lips (both time in competition settings). I have one left but said the heck with it and bought several of the Manticore mags. So far no trouble at the range...

I would stick with PSA.  Biggest bang for the buck and no functionality feed problems like manticores. IHMO

I have had very good luck with the Manticore Arms 30 round magazines.

Are the two PSA 30 round mags #11350 and #11355 (windowed) identical in material and design, except for the windows?  Is there any difference in reliability when used with an S1 or S2 Micro?
Thanks,

Should be, I use the non window PSA mags in my S1 exclusively. And love em.

I have had no issues with my two 20 rd cz mags or my two 30 rd manticore Mags. My issue is getting mags to drop free when the bolt hold open is active after the last round. The bolt applies just enough tension keeping the mags from dropping free.

So where is everyone sanding their mag to allow for them to drop free? Pics would be nice

Thanks.

I've had zero issues with the newer CZ mags, with Magpul mags and with PSA mags (although the PSAs don't drop free without a little sanding).

Me too!
